This semester marks the start of a new format for CITRIS seminars. The i4Energy seminar series will be included in the Research Exchange seminar series and held only on Wednesdays (seminars will no longer take place separately on Fridays). This format gives us chance to focus on each of our initiatives in turn, bringing challenging speakers to discuss their research and join in an ongoing discussion at CITRIS.


The seminars are held in in the Banatao Auditorium of Sutardja Dai Hall on the UC Berkeley campus, and box lunches are provided *with registration*.

Registration for each event (by the Monday prior at 3pm) is required for lunch at UC Berkeley at
