There are a number of regular seminar series that are of interest to EASy members, including some in other schools.
Alergic (Artificial life reading group) meetings are a regular seminar series where presentations on recent work in Artificial Life, Adaptive Behaviour, Computational Neuroscience, Adaptive Robotics and related areas are given, both by internal and external speakers. About 200 people are on the Alergic mailing list, and audience numbers at seminars are typically in the range of 15 to 60 people. Alergic has roughly fortnightly talks, usually in room Pevensey 1, 1A6, on Wednesdays from 4.30 to 5.30pm. To be added to the Alergic email list, which is primarily for advertising local talks and events, please notify Phil Husbands or subscribe at alergic_list page.
16:30 in Pevensey I, 1A6 (unless advertised differently)

COGS fosters interaction and collaboration among all those working in Cognitive Science at Sussex, including researchers and students in Artificial Intelligence, Psychology, Linguistics, Neuroscience and Philosophy. It is a pioneering, internationally recognised centre for interdisciplinary investigation into the nature of cognition, be it natural or artificial. It holds regular research seminars at which internationally-recognised researchers from all corners of cognitive science research present and discuss their latest findings. All are welcome to attend. Further details.
COGS also runs a series of open lectures on the history of cognitive science.
Everybody is welcome to come to the weekly Philosophy Society, which all Philosophy students are encouraged to attend. A talk is given by a visiting philosopher, or one of the Sussex tutors or students. This lasts for approximately one hour, and is followed by a further hour of discussion, which is then continued informally in the bar. These meetings are entertaining as well as instructive, and always well attended.
The CSE (Centre for the Study of Evolution) runs a weekly in-house seminar series where CSE members and invited guests present recent results of their own research or current advances in their field from the literature, in an informal atmosphere which encourages discussion and debate. All are welcome to join in.
The "Natural Language & Computational Linguistics" (NLCL) seminar series.
Seminars in the school of Life Sciences, including Neuroscience seminars.
Seminars and events by one of the largest Psychology departments in the UK.
