Brown Bag Lectures

ICES Brown Bag Lectures are designed to be an informal presentation series for speakers or topics that do not fit the Friday Seminar format but that may be of interest to ICES faculty and students. These speakers may be non-students, faculty, researchers, or those in industry or government. ICES students and faculty are welcome to present as well.

These lectures are held on Thursday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST (see schedule for any changes). The lectures are currently being held virtually. Contact ICES Office Manager ( to request Zoom links.
