The Applied Algebra Seminar is a fortnightly seminar that welcomes participants with applied algebra interests. A brief 5-10 minute social time precedes each in-person event, and all are welcome to join.
The Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminar (ACMS) is a weekly seminar hosted by the Applied and Computational Mathematics group at UW-Madison. Talks cover a broad range of applications of mathematics and computation in domains such as fluid dynamics, biology, biochemistry, topology, and data science. To review the full list of previous seminar topics, visit the ACMS website.
- When: Fridays at 2:25pm.
- Where: 901 Van Vleck Hall

RED Talks are a CDIS (School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences) event series designed to advance learning at the intersection of technology and humanity. RED Talks feature academic and industry leaders sharing their exciting work and offering insights into topics that are often interdisciplinary and always cutting edge.
The Computation and Informatics in Biology an Medicine (CIBM) seminar brings together trainees and trainers in the CIBM Program as well as other interested faculty and students for cross-disciplinary exposure to current research in computer science, biostatistics, engineering, biological sciences, and biomedical research problems related to bioinformatics and computational biology.
- When: Tuesdays, 2:30-3:30pm
- Where: Biotechnology Center Auditorium (faculty presentations) or room 1360 Biotech Center (CIBM fellows)

HAMLET (Human, Animal, and Machine Learning: Experiment and Theory) is an interdisciplinary proseminar series that started in 2008. The goal is to provide behavioral and computational graduate students with a common grounding in the learning sciences. Guest speakers give a talk each week, followed by discussions. It has been an outlet for fresh research results from various projects. Participants are typically from Computer Sciences, ECE, Psychology, Educational Psychology as well as other parts of the campus.
- When: Fridays 3:45–5pm
- Where: Berkowitz room (room 338, Psychology Building)

The ML Community hosts a monthly “ML+X” forum which features lightning talks and group discussions on real-world applications of ML. Each lightning talk presenter summarizes a specific ML use-case, methods employed, and challenges encountered throughout the project. Anyone working with or hoping to apply ML methods (classification, regression, clustering, NLP, etc.) is encouraged to present — especially those who are just getting started with ML. If interested, please send an email to email@example.com to discuss logistics.
The physics department hosts a (mostly) weekly Machine Learning and Physics seminar. At half of these events, they stream and discuss the Physics meets ML online seminar. On the other half, local speakers from UW Madison present their recent research or give introductions to interesting topics in Machine Learning. The schedule can be found here. Students are very welcome to attend this seminar.
The Systems, Information, Learning and Optimization (SILO) research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aims to build a community of mathematically-minded researchers interested in computational and mathematical sciences. SILO hosts a weekly seminar which covers a variety of topics related to machine learning, optimization, and information theory. Review the upcoming schedule and join their mailing list here.
- When: Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30pm
