CFRM is proud to offer regular seminars to our students and interested members of the Seattle community, with an aim to reach a global audience wherever possible. Our primary seminar series, generously supported by Microsoft, brings a wide range of industry and academic experience to UW. Information on this year’s series is posted below, and past years are available in the event archive. Occasionally, due to speaker preference or the proprietary nature of the materials or conversation, we are unable to offer a web stream or recording.


Seminars with available recordings are compiled in our Seminar Library.
