Swansea Distinguished Lectures in Computer Science

Our aim with this series is to focus on a limited number of high-profile lectures. 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 lectures by Professors Brian Randell, Tom Rodden, Muffy Calder, Dame Wendy Hall, Simon Peyton Jones and Ben Shneiderman. It continued in continued in 2012 with Professors Gregory AbowdMartin Campbell-KellyRoss AndersonSir Alan WilsonBjarne Stroustrup and Paul Curzon.
