    Seminar Procedure

    • BSSE appoints a seminar team to coordinate seminar related tasks. Typically, the seminar team comprises a faculty member and a few students.
    • The faculty coordinator, in consultation with faculty and student, identifies seminar speakers well in advance at the beginning of each semester and during the semester. S/he contacts the seminar speakers to schedule a day and time for the seminar. S/he requests the speaker for a title, abstract, and short bio. S/he passes this information to a student coordinator by emailing teamseminar email-alias.
    • The faculty coordinator asks the speaker about travel itinerary, transportation and accommodation arrangements, and any other relevant matter as applicable. S/he also informs the BSSE office manager to make transportation and accommodation arrangements as needed.
    • The first coordinator prepares the seminar notice and sends it to the web server administrator to post it on the seminar page. S/he broadcasts it and sends it to seminar alias of BSSE. S/he sends email reminders.
    • Another student coordinator gets the seminar notice printed, with the help of BSSE office manager, and arranges to get the notice posted on all department noticeboards in a timely manner, typically, at least one week in advance. S/he also arranges an informal meeting with the speaker with students after the seminar, whenever it is possible.
    • The third student coordinator books the seminar hall, with the help of the BSSE office manager. S/he also looks after the arrangements in the seminar hall during the time of the seminar. S/he ensures that audio-video systems work well prior to the seminar. S/he also keeps a memento ready to present it to the speaker.
    • The faculty coordinator introduces the speaker before the seminar. S/he also schedules meetings, with the help of BSSE office manager, with faculty and students, as relevant.
