The Tea Time Talks are a series of talks primarily given by the students and faculty studying Artificial Intelligence at the University of Alberta, but everyone is welcome to attend! The talks are held each Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday in
CSC 3-33 starting in late May and running until late August. See the schedule below for more information.
If you're planning to give a talk, then you can sign up
here but make sure to first read the guidelines for presenters!
Below is the official schedule for the talks. Each talk runs from 4:15 pm to 4:45 pm, unless otherwise noted. Tea and cookies will be served at 4:00 pm.
While not always possible, we are endeavoring to record each talk. A playlist for the 2019 talks is provided
here. Recorded talks from prior years can be found in the archive section below.
Some presenters have generously offered to share the slides from their talk. The PDF version of their slides can be downloaded
Guidelines for Presenters
If you're planning on presenting there are a few things to keep in mind:
Each talk is usually either an overview of a paper or a summary of the presenter's own work and is almost always accompanied by slides.
An abstract of your talk needs to be written up at least one week prior and sent to the
coordinator. Each talk should start punctually at 4:15 and be 20 minutes long with 10 minutes afterwards for questions.
Cookies and tea will be provided by the group, so you don't have to worry about bringing anything.
It's your responsibility to make sure that you pass over any disruptive questions if they divert from the talk.
It's highly recommended, though not essential, that you release your slides after the talk.
The coordinator for the 2019 Tea Time Talks is Sheila Schoepp. They can be reached at sschoepp AT ualberta DOT ca.
