Planned LOC Talks


The schedule of LOC talks for the Spring 2022 semester is posted below. Check back for additional information about talk titles and locations. 

The LOC talk on 2/24 will be online (live only) via Zoom; please click on the link to register. After you register, you will be sent an email with a link to the Zoom talk and a link to download the talk questionnaire. Both of these are necessary for fulfilling the requirement, so please check your email! Your email is necessary for registering for and accessing the Zoom talk. (NOTE: It will not work if you include "buckeyemail" in your email address.) If you click on a link and you are told that you do not have permission to access something, go to, which should take you to an OSU login page. Log in there, and then come back to this page and try clicking on the link again.  If you are logging in through the desktop Zoom app (“Zoom Cloud Meetings”) or get to a Zoom sign-in page in a web browser, at the “Sign In” menu, you must click on “Sign in with SSO”; do not try to sign in via your email here. On the "Sign In with SSO" page in the app, enter “osu” as the company domain, and it will take you to the OSU authentication webpage.
