On November 3-4, 2017, the CSL and the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities are combining forces to bring Speculative Futures to campus. Drawing on this world-famous technological legacy, Speculative Futures is a series of events that bring artists, writers and technology innovators into conversation with one another in order to spark new creative projects at the intersection of computers and the sci-fi imagination.

Next lecture: 3 p.m. | Friday, October 13, 2017 | Stephen Boyd, Stanford University | "Convex Optimization"
ABSTRACT | Convex optimization has emerged as useful tool for applications that include data analysis and model fitting, resource allocation, engineering design, network design and optimization, finance, and control and signal processing. After an overview of the mathematics, algorithms, and software frameworks for convex optimization, we turn to common themes that arise across applications, such as sparsity and relaxation. We describe recent work on real-time embedded convex optimization, in which small problems are solved repeatedly in millisecond or microsecond time frames, and large-scale distributed convex optimization, in which many solvers are coordinated to solve enormous problems..
55th Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing
October 3-6, 2017 University of Illinois
Each year, the Allerton Conference draws some of the brightest minds from industry, academia and government to discuss innovation in the fields of communication, control and computing. We invite you to submit your work and join us at Allerton Park and Retreat Center for an exciting few days of presentations, special events and networking.

CSL Social Hour
Fridays at 3pm, CSL 369 - University of Illinois
Join us for CSL Social Hour each Friday at 3 p.m. during the academic year. It's a great opportunity to network with fellow researchers and learn more about the breadth of work underway in CSL. Refreshments will be served. The event is hosted in CSL 369.
The University of Illinois’ Coordinated Science Laboratory is a premier, multidisciplinary research laboratory that focuses on information technology at the crossroads of circuits, computing, control, and communications.
Led by a faculty of world-renowned experts and researchers, CSL uses these innovations to explore critical issues in defense, medicine, environmental sciences, robotics, life-enhancement for the disabled, and aeronautics.
