Professor Jack Cole initiated the Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) in 1969 with a view to exposing students and other interested parties to leading edge topics in Computer Science. He felt that most conferences priced themselves too highly to be used as general educational resources, and accordingly the cost of attending these open lectures has been held to a minimum through support from The School of Computer Science, and sponsorship from industry. The format of the series was changed in 1998 from a two-day event with two speakers addressing different aspects of the same topic, to two separate days with independent topics.

Two lectures by distinguished invited speakers are arranged each year. Details will be announced during the semester.
