CITRIS Research Exchange – Spring 2014

This is the second semester of the new format for CITRIS seminars. The i4Energy seminar series will be included in the Research Exchange seminar series and held on Wednesdays. 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.

Free and open to the public, the Research Exchange Seminar Series is a weekly roundtable of presentations and discussions that highlights ways to frame and tackle societal-scale research issues. Registration is requested for lunch at UC Berkeley. Please register for each event at the links below or visit for all event listings.

Talks are on Wednesdays, 12-1pm in the Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley*
