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 picture for the Center's members. Each seminar, held via teleconferencing, typically starts at 12:05pm (Pacific time) or 3:05pm (Eastern time), run approximately 50 minutes. The seminar coordinators for the 2014-2015 academic year are Peter Zhao, UC Berkeley and Tao Yu, MIT.
