Introduction to Seminars

This introductory seminar provides more information about the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) in general, as well as about the ACM Student Chapter and its organizing members.

We are happy to announce that Prof. Alexander Wolf, who is both a professor in the Computing Department at Imperial College working on distributed systems, networking, and software engineering and the current president of the ACM, will join this first Seminar to talk about the ACM as well as his work.

This first Seminar will also be the perfect opportunity to ask questions about the ACM Student Chapter, to suggest events that you would like to see happening, and to find out more about how to get involved.

Claudia Schulz is a second year PhD student working in the field of knowledge representation and reasoning, where her particular focus is on Argumentation Theory. As a Teaching Scholar in the Department of Computing, she is gaining teaching experience of all kinds: tutoring, preparing coursework, marking, supervision, lecturing, etc. During her free time she loves to get out of London to go climbing or hiking in the British "mountains". More about me→
