CS Joins Brown Events Calendar

The Computer Science Department event calendar is now hosted on Brown's campus-wide event calendar system.  The "topical area" of Computer Science is where you will find our events both past and future.  The CS website still displays upcoming events on the home page and on the events page using an ical feed from university's event software (Bedework).  The Bedework calendar system organizes events by category, and "CompSci" is our category.

Including our events in the campuswide event system gives them greater visibility.  It also makes it easier to elevate high-profile events to the main campus calendar and to promote our events on Morning Mail.  The category system allows us to create feed-based views of events of particular types, such as undergraduate recruiting events, for highlighting on our website.
