Distinguished Lecture Series
Professor Jack Cole initiated the Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) in 1969 with a view to exposing students and other interested parties to leading-edge topics in computer science. He felt that most conferences priced themselves too highly to be used as general educational resources; therefore, the cost of attending these open lectures has been held to a minimum through support from the School of Computer Science and sponsorship from industry. The format of the series was changed in 1998 from a two-day event with two speakers addressing different aspects of the same topic, to two separate days with independent topics.
