There are usually 1 or 2 Ciders held every month, and are usually held in the
35 St. George Street at the University of Toronto. Please watch out for e-mails announcing the cider, or visit
the website on a regular basis for exact time and location for a Cider. Feel free to bring your lunch along.
Cider seminars are talks where you spend an hour of your time getting informed
about recent developments in hot areas of computer engineering. You get to know your peers and of
their work. Occasionally, you present your own work and get valuable feedback (think of it, it's a good
bargain: you get many experts to comment on your work for free).
A long tradition in our University, the Cider/Computer
engineering seminar is a weekly gathering of students and faculty interested in all aspects of
computer engineering. The seminar's objectives are not only to familiarize attendees with recent
research developments in computer engineering and to ongoing research at Toronto, but also to expose
students to valuable presentation techniques and informal peer review.
Most presentations are by PhD and Master's students, however,
computer engineering professors, visiting professors, post-docs, and
people in the computering engineering industry are all welcome to present.
Speakers may choose to present their own research or recent publications from computer engineering
conferences or related fields. Speakers summarize the research contributions and key concepts while
audience is encouraged to actively participate by commenting on the ideas and value of the presented
work. Students interested in all aspects of computer engineering are strongly encouraged to attend and
All grad students, faculty and visiting academics who are interested in a specific
Cider topic, or in the general field of computer engineering are welcome. Students
interested in all aspects of computer engineering are strongly encouraged to attend and
Send an email to cideradm [at] eecg [dot] toronto [dot] edu with a brief
description of the presentation and a short biography.
Part of the Cider tradition is to serve hot apple cider to seminar
attendees (and presenters, of course). Bring a mug along.
