E3S Research Seminars is mainly a venue for the Center's members to share information about their research. Each seminar, held via teleconference, starts at 12:05pm (Pacific time) or 3:05pm (Eastern time), run approximately 50 minutes. The seminar coordinators are Yang Yang, UC Berkeley and Ryan Iutzi, MIT.

In lieu of seminars on the Center's research, the Center is hosting four invited speakers during Summer 2014.
