Swansea Distinguished Lectures in Computer Science
Our aim with this series is six high-profile lectures each academic year. The topics target a broad audience of computer scientists, but they should also be of interest to colleagues in other disciplines.
The series started in 2011 with distinguished lectures by Professors Brian Randell, Tom Rodden, Muffy Calder, Dame Wendy Hall, Simon Peyton Jones and Ben Shneiderman.
