There is a variety of Seminars held each week during the Academic Year. These events offer
faculty members and visitors to the department the opportunity to present their current
research work to an appreciative and skeptical audience. Approximately once
each quarter there is a joint colloqium with the Berkeley Statistics
Department, held in alternating locations, followed by a social activity.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend Seminars regularly to become
acquainted with the broad range of research topics in probability
and statistics, and to taste the excellent cookies which are served
before the presentations. Ph.D. candidates are expected to present the results of
their thesis research in a Statistics Department Seminar.

Template for Seminar Abstracts
We provide a LaTeX template
for speakers to use when submitting the abstract for a
seminar (sample PDF output here). Using
this template makes it straightforward for us to post the details of
the talk promptly and without unintended errors that might creep in
if we were to transcribe the abstract from another source.
