Vincent Meyer Colloquium

The Vincent Meyer Colloquium Series recognizes the importance of bringing to the Technion campus distinguished academic short term visitors, with the aims of promoting both research and education.

Speakers are chosen on the basis of their ability to share valuable new information and to initiate scientific interactions with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. They deliver two or three lectures. These include at least one colloquium accessible to a wide audience, while the other lectures may be more specialized.
