The Tea Time Talks are a series of talks primarily given by the faculty and students studying Artificial Intelligence at the University of Alberta. Everyone is welcome to attend!

The 2022 talks will start June 13th and will run until late August. Talks are scheduled to be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:15 pm - 4:45 pm MT.

The 2022 talks will have a hybrid format. There will be mix of in-person talks and online talks (via Zoom).

If you would like to give a talk, then you can sign up here but make sure to first read the guidelines for presenters!

Code of Conduct: The purpose of these talks is to give junior researchers an opportunity to present their on-going work. The attitude should be the one of collaboration when asking questions. Questions during the talk should primarily be about minor clarifications. Broader discussions about the overall line of research and larger confusions are best reserved for the Q&A session. Doing so ensures that we allow the speaker to execute their planned talk with-in the allotted 20 minutes. Any feedback about style or structure of the talk can be shared privately afterwards.


Below is the official schedule for the talks.
