The CS 900 course requires participation in a series of seminars presented by both honours undergraduate students and graduate students. M.Sc. and Ph.D. students are enrolled in CS 900, while undergraduate honours students are enrolled in CS 499.
A representative of the Seminar Committee will meet with all seminar candidates (CS 499 undergrad and CS 900 grad) at the beginning of each term to familiarize them with the process, to assign them presentation dates, and to set deadlines for the submission of the title/abstract and the draft presentation.
Seminar notices are sent out via email and posted outside the CS department office in College West as well as on the CS department website.
Graduate students are required to attend the seminars in the Department of Computer Science seminar series and the Research Colloquium series.
In addition, the student is responsible for giving one presentation in each semester of CS 900, for a total of 2 presentations. The topic of these presentations is to be determined in consultation with your supervisor or co-supervisors. Every proposed topic requires final approval by the Seminar Coordinator for the given semester of enrolment. The seminar courses are both numbered CS900. Ordinarily, one is labelled section 001 and the other section 002. For a Ph.D. student who completed an M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Regina, the sections are labelled 003 and 004. The two seminar classes cannot be taken during the same semester.
All students must submit an abstract of their topic prior to their presentation. The submission deadline for abstracts is set by the Seminar Coordinator at the beginning of the course.
