During the Fall/Winter/Spring academic semesters/quarters, E3S Research Seminars are mainly a venue for the Center's members to share information about their research. Summer seminars typically cover allied research outside the Center to provide a broader perspective for the Center's members. Each seminar, held via teleconferencing, typically starts at 12:05pm (Pacific), 1:05pm (Mountain), or 3:05pm (Eastern), run approximately 50 minutes.
