CIIR Talk Series

The CIIR Talk Series is an initiative for researchers and practitioners working on information retrieval and related disciplines to present their work. Presentations will be held biweekly on Fridays from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. (with some exceptions) for the Fall 2022 semester. The presentations will be online (for now) and open to the public. The presentations will also be shown in CS 151 for those on the UMass Amherst campus.

Faculty Host: Hamed Zamani
