Mailing list

If you are attending the seminar, please sign up for the mailing list. The CSE590f mailing list is for the seminar only, and has been reset. The Change mailing list will be used for more general computing and the developing world information and discussion.

Winter 2009

The seminar meets Wednesdays, 4:00 - 4:50 in CSE 403. If you are coming from off campus here are directions to CSE. This is a change in time/place from the original announcement. Course organizers are Richard Anderson (Anderson@cs) and Joyojeet Pal (Joyojeet@u).


This quarter the seminar will present a series of talks highlighting work at University of Washington on computing and information technology for low income regions. Undergraduate students, graduate students, research scholars, and faculty are all welcome.
