The Gibbons Lectures is an annual series of talks given in the Department of Computer Science in association with the Institute of IT Professionals NZ (formerly the New Zealand Computer Society). There will usually be about 4 lectures delivered at weekly intervals in the first semester. The goal of each lecture is to describe detailed developments in a particular research area to a general but technical audience - to Computer Science students at all levels, to IT practitioners in other departments and outside the University. Each year the speakers and topics will be widely advertised well in advance. The first lecture each year will be delivered by a prestigious speaker, often from overseas. The remaining contributors to the series will be from the Computer Science Department or from associated researchers in other departments and institutions in New Zealand.
The prestige of these lectures and their permanence depends on establishing a permanent source of funding. To that end the department has established this fund that will be built up to provide support. If you would like to contribute, please complete the form below.
