Shutterstock Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS)

The Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) is an ongoing program in the Department of Computer Science (CS) where distinguished leaders in the field are invited to present lectures to the computing community. Since it began in Fall 2000, the DLS has been very successful in hosting many prominent computer scientists. The department is pleased to announce that Shutterstock, founded by CS alum Jon Oringer, is once again sponsoring our DLS. Thank you Shutterstock!
