The Engineering and Technology Colloquia series provides a forum to learn about new technologies and applications, to showcase the work done at STScI and to allow the exchange of ideas among our staff and the speakers. The topics of the Colloquia are of broad interest to our engineering, technical and astronomical research staff with an emphasis on innovative and leading edge technologies in the computer sciences, information technology, systems engineering and other disciplines as those used at STScI.
Talks begin at 3:00 p.m. with tea and cookies served 15 minutes before unless otherwise indicated.
