Special Colloquium "Strategies for searches of physics beyond the Standard Model in the XXI century"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Manuel Franco Sevilla, University of California, Santa Barbara
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: At the end of the XIX century, Lord Kelvin summarized a widespread feeling among physicists by saying that "physics is essentially complete, save for two little clouds". The "clouds" he was (apocryphally) referring to were the puzzling results from two measurements, the Michelson-Morley experiment and the Black-body spectrum, whose explanations ushered in an unprecedented era of discoveries that stretched throughout most of the XX century. After the culmination of the Standard Model in the 70's, the field of particle physics has found itself in a similar situation. Today, the "clouds" guiding the searches for physics beyond the Standard Model are issues like dark matter or the hierarchy problem. Using SUSY searches at CMS and the measurement of B->D(*)TauNu decays at BaBar as models, I will give an overview of some of the main strategies that are being followed in the quest to find new physics in the XXI century.

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This talk provides an overview of the ways in which the interdisciplinary fields of disability studies in the humanities and what has come to be called "crip theory" are transforming higher education. The talk will suggest that this curricular transformation functions at multiple levels, generating new forms of knowledge and making higher education more accessible to diverse learners in the broadest sense of the term "accessibility." The talk will also stress, however, that higher education and access for disabled people are currently in a moment of crisis both in the U.S. and more globally, and will consider some of the ways that activists, artists, and educators are responding to that crisis.

Event Image Modern Indian Identity Featuring Burns Paiute Former Chairwoman Charlotte Roderique
6:30 PM

Burns Paiute Former Chairwoman Charlotte Roderique presents: The 2016 Oregon Wildlife Refuge Takeover: A Tribal Response. A year ago, Former Chairwoman Charlotte Roderique of the Burns Paiute tribe in Eastern Oregon came to national attention during the armed takeover, led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Originally part of the Paiute home territory, the Refuge holds many of the tribe’s sacred sites, as well as artifacts and natural resources laden with cultural meaning. In a press conference, followed by a New York Times editorial, the Former Chairwoman vigorously presented the tribe’s view of the takeover. Mocking the refuge occupiers’ demand that they should be recognized as the original owners of the public lands, the Burns Paiute people asserted their status as the original residents and brought attention to the remarkable cooperation among Native peoples, federal employees, and ranchers, that had been in place before the Bundys seized center-stage.

"Charlotte Roderique is a forthright and inspirational leader, and also one of the American West’s most gifted practitioners in the art of using wit and humor to put fresh and disarming ideas into play,” Patty Limerick, Faculty Director of the Center of the American West, observed. “Anyone who joins us on February 21st will remember her visit for years to come."

The Modern Indian Identity Program features a series of contemporary Indian speakers telling their stories in ways that confirm the compatibility of tradition with innovation. The speakers have a profound tie to their peoples’ pasts, and they have also adapted with agility and enterprise to the conditions of our times. This event is made possible by the generosity of Liz and Tony Moores.

This program is FREE and open to public.

Physics Colloquium, "The Difficult Search for CP Violation in Neutrinos"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Michael Wilking, Stony Brook University

Abstract: To observe CP violation, experiments must make precise, differential measurements of the appearance of electron neutrinos and anti-electron neutrinos. This requires unprecedented control of systematic uncertainties, and, in particular, an understanding of neutrino-nucleus interactions that is beyond the capabilities of existing theoretical models. The resulting "neutrino energy measurement problem" that will be confronted by current and future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments, as well as potential experimental solutions, will be discussed.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

But how do you translate this innovation and excitement into your first 10 paying customers? That’s what you’ll learn at this workshop co-presented by the CU NVC and the NVC General Track! Erick Mueller will be your host on this adventure. Erick has founded a number of companies. Some have been colossal failures (I mean, really massive) and others have been sold to Fortune 50 companies. And in each venture, he’s sold the first $1 million himself (if they made it that far!). You’ll get your hands dirty in this workshop and walk away with practical tips and tools you can start using tomorrow. 1.What are you (really!) selling? 2. Confirmation of your value proposition (to the correct audience)! 3. How to generate leads and prospect! 4. How to craft your sales presentation! 5. What to do tomorrow to win your first deal!

Event Image Doctoral Student Recital: Keith Barnhart, classical guitar
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

"Theorbo and Friends"
Throughout the Classical era and into modern times, the guitar and other plucked stringed instruments have mostly been used in solo performance or in pop music. However, in earlier times these instruments held a very respectable place in musical society. Perhaps because of the flexibility of basso continuo and the portability of these instruments themselves, many chamber works of the Baroque and Renaissance eras include lutes, theorbos, guitars and other lesser-known plucked instruments.


PROGRAM: Tarquinio Merula: Ciaccona, Op. 12 No. 20; Antonio Vivaldi: Cello Sonata in A minor, RV 43; J.S. Bach: Flute Sonata in E minor, BWV 1034; Francesco Corbetta: Sinfonia a 2; John Johnson: Lute Duets; Dario Castello: Sonata Prima; Antonio Vivaldi: Trio Sonata in D minor, RV 63

Event Image Universal Design for Learning with iOS Devices; Luis Perez, Apple Distinguished Educator
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

This session will discuss the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) philosophy in relation to the capabilities of iOS devices. In particular, the iPad is a powerful example of a device that incorporates the key tenets of the UDL philosophy, with a variety of built-in accessibility features available to users out of the box as standard options. While many of these features (such as text to speech and speech recognition) were originally designed for people with disabilities, today they can help all learners enjoy equitable access to information, communication and expression. Along with the many apps that can be installed, these accessibility features make the iPad a powerful tool for customizing the learning experience to meet the variable needs of a diverse student population. Other factors such as the portability of the device and its social acceptability have also made the iPad a popular choice for meeting the needs of diverse learners. However, to get the most out of the iPad and its many supported apps, we as educators must move beyond its use as an enhancement of traditional practices and instead explore the unique affordances that make it an ideal tool for redefining and transforming the learning environment. You will leave this session with a toolkit for access and inclusion that will assist you in providing a more flexible learning environment where every one of your learners can succeed.

Event Image Identifying and Addressing Microaggressions with Professors Jim Walker and Valentina Iturbe-LaGrave
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

This interactive session offers a research-informed, hands-on approach to enacting inclusive pedagogy in post-secondary learning environments. By recognizing the intercentricity of race and racism as they relate to university structures, practices, and discourses that inadvertently lead to hostile learning environments, Dr. LaGrave and Dr. Walker collaborate in an interdisciplinary approach to thinking and working through difference. The session draws from recent actual CU classroom scenarios to offer models for responding to latent/blatant racism, homophobia, sexism, gender norming/shaming, white denial/fragility, and more.

Guided by findings from recent research and classroom observations, participants will gain hands-on experience identifying and responding to a variety of comments and incidents involving implicit-bias, prejudice, or stereotyping. Through small-group interaction, attendees will develop and practice strategies for turning such "flashpoint" moments into encounters which can foster safe, inclusive, and collegial learning environments.

Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Talk: Professor John Fabian Witt (Yale University)
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Professor John Fabian Witt (Yale University) “The Radical Roots of Brown v. Board: A Blueprint for Modern Constitutional Change” The Supreme Court’s 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education is at the center of contemporary American constitutional law. And yet for at least a decade critics have charged that Brown adopted a thin, formal, and legalistic conception of civil rights inadequate to the task before it. By going to the roots of the efforts that eventually produced the decision, we can glimpse Brown’s radical beginnings – and make sense of why every constitutional transformation that has followed has sought to replicate its basic blueprint. Author of Lincoln’s Code: The Laws of War in American History (2013 Bancroft Prize), John Fabian Witt is Allen H. Duffy Class of 1960 Professor of Law at Yale Law School and a professor in Yale’s history department, where he teaches the history of American law, the laws of war, and the law of torts. Other writings include Patriots and Cosmopolitans and the prize-winning The Accidental Republic. He recently published a book on the law of torts, Torts: Cases, Principles, and Institutions, and is currently editing a book on constitutional orders in emergencies, as well as writing a history of the Garland Fund: the 1920s philanthropic foundation whose work financed the efforts that culminated in Brown v. Board of Education. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Society of American Historians, and the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship. This talk is sponsored by the CU Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa as part of the 2016-17 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program.

Understanding and Practicing Effective Peer Review

Elissa S. Guralnick, Professor Emerita, College of Music

Nearly every academic discipline is based on peer review of original research, and yet few are ever taught how to write or respond to such reviews. Narrowly defined, a peer review is an expert’s assessment of a manuscript submitted to a scholarly journal or a press for publication. You can start to learn now how to give a meaningful peer review. Equally important, you can learn now how to respond effectively and efficiently to such reviews, helping you to become not only a better reader of other people’s scholarship, but also a better scholar and writer yourself.

Advanced Polymeric Architectures for Biomedical and Sensing Applications

Victoria A. Piunova

Technical Project Leader, IBM Almaden Research Center

Friday, Feb 24th

9:30 -10:30 am

ME department conference rooms

 

The first part of this presentation will discuss the design and synthesis of gel-core star polymers as drug delivery vehicles and antimicrobial agents. Well-defined, multi-armed star polymers have been prepared by an “arm first” synthetic approach. Strategies to introduce core and/or peripheral functionality into the gel-core star polymers have been taken to tailor the properties of the carriers. A combination of molecular simulations and experimental results provides insight into the mechanism of star polymer formation.

The second part of this presentation will focus on the synthesis and self-assembly of dendronized block-copolymers to responsive photonic crystals for sensing applications. 

 

Dr. Victoria Piunova is a research staff member at IBM Almaden Research Center. She earned her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Southern California conducted post-doctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Piunova’s current research interests are focused on the development of materials for biomedical applications and sensing.

De Motu Animalium:  Modern Models for Animal Trajectories 
 
Advances in animal telemetry data collection techniques have served as a catalyst for the creation of statistical methodology for analyzing animal movement data.  Such data and methodology have provided a wealth of information about animal space use and the investigation of individual-based animal-environment relationships.  While the technology for data collection is improving dramatically over time, we are left with massive archives of historical animal telemetry data of varying quality.  However, many contemporary statistical approaches for inferring movement behavior are designed for newer data that are very accurate and high-resolution.  From a scientific perspective, the behaviors we are interested in learning about may be complicated, nonstationary, and constrained.  Furthermore, telemetry data often contain substantial measurement error and can be nonelliptically distributed.  I provide a brief overview of the history of statistical models for animal movement and present an accessible framework for accommodating the inherent characteristics of Lagrangian movement processes and uncertainty associated with telemetry data.

Event Image David Korevaar Distinguished Research Lecture
4:00 PM - 5:45 PM

"The Score is Alive...With the Sound of Music", the 109th Distinguished Research Lecturer David Korevaar

The Distinguished Research Lectureship is among the highest honors bestowed by the faculty on a faculty member at CU Boulder. Each year, the Research & Innovation Office requests nominations from faculty for this award, and a faculty review panel recommends one faculty member as a recipient. 2016 honorees are David Korevaar (Music) and Thomas T. Veblen (Geography).

David Korevaar began his piano studies at age six in San Diego with Sherman Storr, and at age 13 he became a student of the great American virtuoso Earl Wild. By age 20 he had earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Juilliard School, where he continued his studies with Earl Wild and studied composition with David Diamond. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Juilliard School with Abbey Simon. Another important mentor and teacher was the French pianist Paul Doguereau, who had been a student of Egon Petri, and who had studied the music of Fauré and Debussy with Roger-Ducasse (a pupil of Fauré’s), and the music of Ravel with the composer.

Pack a laptop, a change of clothes and some creativity, and head over to CU Boulder ATLAS for T9Hacks, an invention marathon of sorts that’s absolutely free!  T9Hacks is a place to try out new ideas and collaborate in a fun environment, an all-night event where participants race to create the next great software project. Hacking will continue for 24 hours straight, and participants don’t need programming experience. And there’s free food, too!

T9Hacks is a women’s hackathon–the “T” stands for “Title IX.” Men can attend too, but in Sadie Hawkins fashion; they need to be invited by a woman (see website for details). The event is geared towards college students (and recent college grads) to see what hackathons are about, learn, explore, and create something new. 

Explore the possibilities. Get a start on a project you’ve had in the back of your mind. Create a solution to a problem you see often. Build something you never have before. And for those who have never written a line of code–this event is especially for you. Mentors will guide you through the process.

You don’t need to attend CU Boulder to attend T9Hacks. But, you do need to register.

Silicon Flatirons: Crash Course - Building Great Boards
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

For startups, emerging growth companies and established firms, the challenge of building a great board is often overlooked or underappreciated. For startup companies, the first question is whether and when to establish an operating board (or an advisory board, for that matter). For those companies with established boards, the question is how to use them effectively, avoiding any dysfunctional or counterproductive behavior that can sometimes take hold. In this crash course, we will discuss how a great board is an important opportunity for a company to elicit honest feedback, hold the leadership accountable to key goals and engage valuable resources in the company’s mission. It will also evaluate the potential pitfalls of boards, including how to manage investors on a board who have interests that may diverge from the company’s or the founder’s vision; how boards can best manage, mentor and hire/fire CEOs; what to look for in recruiting board members and how to use them most effectively.

Physics Colloquium, "Searching for Supersymmetry at the LHC"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Keith Ulmer, Texas A&M

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN currently provides the highest energy particle collisions ever produced in a laboratory. These collisions were reconstructed and analyzed by the CMS and ATLAS experiments to claim the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012, thus completing the standard model of particle physics. This talk explores what's next for the LHC, including the implications of the Higgs discovery on the search for new physics beyond the standard model. In particular, such open questions as the nature of dark matter and the gauge hierarchy problem may find eloquent solutions in supersymmetry, a proposed new symmetry of nature relating fermions and bosons. I will discuss the current state of experimental searches for supersymmetry at CMS, including the near term prospects for discovery, and will conclude with an example of the innovative new technological solutions being explored to continue the hunt for new physics into the High Luminosity LHC era set to begin in the coming decade.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

CompSci Colloquium: Yan Shoshitaishvili (UC Santa Barbara)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Making the World Safer Through Cyber-Autonomy

ABSTRACT: Our world is driven by interconnected software. While this connectivity provides functionality and convenience, it is not without risks: vulnerabilities are still rampant in modern software, and the exploitation of these vulnerabilities turns our connectivity into a liability. With the recent proliferation of "smart" devices, more vulnerable software than ever is connected to the internet, and open to attackers.

We must find and fix these vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. In this talk, Shoshitaishvili will describe his research into an analysis pipeline that is flexible and extensible enough to target the identification of different types of vulnerabilities in binary code. He will discuss angr, the analysis framework powering this pipeline, and detail how angr can be applied not only to vulnerability identification in binary code, but to vulnerability remediation as well. Finally, he will show the culmination of these techniques in the form of the Mechanical Phish, one of the world's first fully autonomous hacking systems. Last year, the Mechanical Phish won third place in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge by autonomously finding, exploiting, and patching vulnerabilities in a live competition, at a scale that could not be achieved by human hackers.

Shoshitaishvili has open-sourced the Mechanical Phish and the angr framework that powers it. The growing community around the project, including research labs and companies around the world, are actively pushing forward the frontier of binary analysis. With ever-improving vulnerability detection and remediation techniques, we hope to introduce automated binary analysis techniques into the standard arsenal of the "good guys," making our world more secure in the process.
BIO: Yan Shoshitaishvili is a PhD candidate at UC Santa Barbara, with a primary research focus of program analysis and vulnerability identification. He is currently the captain of the Shellphish computer hacking group, and guides them through cybersecurity competitions worldwide. Over the last two years, Shoshitaishvili led Shellphish's participation in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge, applying his research to the creation of a fully autonomous hacking system that won third place in the competition. Underpinning this system is angr, an open-source binary analysis project founded by Yan in the course of his research.

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.
