The Halmstad Colloquium is a distinguished speaker series at Halmstad University. Prominent speakers are invited from universities, research organisations and companies around the world, to talk about topics of interest for the researchers within the research environment Halmstad Embedded and Intelligent systems research. The Halmstad Colloquium is hosted by the School of Information Technology and was founded by Professor Walid Taha in 2012.
