E3S Research Seminars is mainly a venue for the Center's members to share information about their research. Six seminars are planned as part of the Spring 2014 series, beginning on February 6. 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 research seminars, the Center hosts a Journal Club during the summer.
