  1. Check the internal calendar for a free seminar slot. If the seminar is not at the booked time of Tueday noon, you have to call or email Sharyn [510-643-4971, climons@berkeley.edu] to book a room. You have to do this as early as possible of she will be pissed. It is not easy for them to find rooms. The 3 rooms they can get are 5101 Tolman, the Beech Room (3rd floor Tolman), and the Barker seminar room (no more than 20 people...). They can also book the LSA large seminar room through MCB if given enough warning.
  2. Make a note on this page in the Tentative Speakers section that you are going to invite a speaker. Please include your name and email as host in case somebody wants to contact you.
  3. Invite a speaker.
  4. As soon as the speaker confirms, put the information in the Confirmed Speakers section.
  5. Put the date into the internal calendar
  6. Notify kilian [1] that we have a confirmed speaker so that I can update the web page. Please include title and abstract.
  7. Notify Sharyn [2] about the seminar date.
