Guidelines for the Graduate Student Seminar Series CSI5902/COMP5904:
The requirements of CSI5902/COMP5904 are: These requirements must be fulfilled within two consecutive terms (normally, fall and winter). Failure to do so will lead to a failure in the course.

The purpose of the seminar series is to encourage graduate students to make presentations that will illuminate a research topic that may be related to (but is distinct from) their thesis project. The topic of presentation is chosen by the student in consultation with her/his thesis supervisor. It is expected that graduate students will:

  1. Make a high quality presentation with carefully prepared and easily readable transparencies (or with any other necessary visual aids).
  2. Present ideas in a way that is understandable to a general audience.
  3. Answer questions by the audience and show necessary understanding of material presented.
On failure to comply with the above guidelines and at the discretion of the graduate seminar supervisors in collaboration with the student's supervisor(s) a student may be required to prepare a new presentation on an alternate topic.

All graduate students are encouraged to participate in this seminar series even after the completion of their formal attendance and presentation requirements.

  • Time:

  • Presentations will be on Fridays at 9:30 a.m.; alternating one week at Carleton University and the next at the University of Ottawa.
