- HCDE Seminar Series is a class taught each fall that is (mostly) outside speakers in CSCW that is also a set of open talks. There are usually quite good things! If there's a list, I'm not sure where it is. In any case, announcements seem to be all sent to DUB.

tascha-share — a mailman list for information sharing around TASCHA folks(this group is closed; no idea how to stay up-to-date on TASCHA specific events)
