E3S Research Seminars is mainly a venue for the Center's members to share information about their research. Each seminar, held via teleconference, 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.
