The Computer Science Colloquium is a series of weekly public guest lectures on cutting-edge topics related to computer science. Talks by distinguished members of the computer science community are on Thursdays at noon in Salazar Hall, Room 2016. Many students attend the series to gain an understanding of what it means to be a computer scientist and many establish valuable connections through the informal meetings with the speakers. The colloquium may be taken for credit (CS 390, 1 unit) and can be applied toward the computer science major (up to 3 units).

FEB.18 John Aycock, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Even the simplest old computer games may have required technical miracles to get running at all -- retrogame programmers were constrained by both hardware and software in ways that are
unimaginable now. Retrogame archeology looks under the hood of old games to uncover
the clever tricks that make them tick. Learn about what retrogame archeology is (and isn't) and how old
games are studied today.
