Thanks to the Stanford Computer Forum and SCPD, whose support helps make this seminar possible.

Non-Stanford Visitors
Due to COVID-19 Safety precautions we can only allow Stanford affiliates to join the seminar in person in Skilling Auditorium. Non-Stanford visitors are welcome to join the seminar talks on zoom. If you do not have a Stanford email, please register here in advance.

*** Join via Zoom here *** (same link for all talks)

If enrolled Stanford students wish to attend the seminar regularly, they can receive one unit of credit by enrolling in CS 547. The requirements are to attend seminars either in person or synchronously over Zoom at 11:00 - 12:00pm PST Fridays, and to watch all seminars. (Note: you may watch in-person lectures synchronously on Zoom.) Up to 2 can be watched non-live via the recording, which can be found on Canvas via Panopto. If your physical location during COVID-19 makes live attendance infeasible, email and describe your situation by the end of Week 2 of the quarter to get permission from the staff to watch all seminars recorded rather than live. SCPD students do not need to watch seminars live. If circumstances result in you missing more than two live seminars, you can still earn credit by watching two seminars for each additional one that you missed: (1) the original seminar that you missed, recorded; and (2) one live HCI Group seminar - either an HCI Seminar lecture or HCI Lunch in a future quarter. Email to report on your makeup seminar, instead of using the attendance form.

All enrolled students must submit the weekly attendance form.

We require live attendance because this helps establish a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our invited speakers. Course conflicts do not excuse absence—enrolling in the class is a commitment to attend it. Likewise, job interviews and other schedule conflicts under the student's control are not excused absences: we provide the two non-live seminars for these purposes. Travel for athletic competitions is an excused absence, since it is not under the student's control. For serious illness, death in the family, or other issues out of the student's control, contact the course staff.

We videotape the seminar and post the videos to YouTube, to record the history of HCI as it unfolds and to support wide dissemination of cutting edge HCI work. Video cameras located in the back of the room (or the Zoom cameras while remote) will capture the presentations. When you attend the seminar in person, please note: while the cameras are positioned with the intention of recording only the instructor, occasionally a part of your image might be incidentally captured. If you attend on Zoom, your video and voice may also be captured. Before the video is made public, editors will review the recordings and blur student images. Occasionally, your voice might also be incidentally captured. If you have questions, please contact a member of the teaching team.

Videos are on YouTube externally and the CS 547 Canvas site internally. Older videos are on iTunesU and our old YouTube channel.
