Coast to Coast Seminars at the IRMACS Centre
The Fall 2016 topic of the popular seminar series is "Foundations and Applications of Big Data" and will highlight some of the excellent work that is going on across Canada in this field, and sets the scene for the Spring 2015 President's Dream Colloquium on Engaging Big Data.
If you can't make it to the seminar, you can always live stream, or view uploaded video (not all talks have video available). All talks are given at the IRMACS Centre in the Applied Sciences Building, Room 10900, SFU Burnaby, from 11:30am - 12:30PM. Please RSVP via websurvey if you would like to attend.
