Event Image Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of the National Park Service The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. Exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Brown Bag- Sam Flaxman - Universal Design: format your materials for access by large number of users
12:00 PM

Ramaley N240

Wednesday 12:00 - 1:00


Sam Flaxman

"Universal Design: How to format your materials for access by the greatest possible number of users."



"Local, State, and Federal guidelines require that we make reasonable efforts to make our instructional materials as accessible as possible for all people, regardless of of their primary language, disability status, etc.  For example, you may have noticed that all of CU's webpages now require "alternate text" for any images you use.  The problem for many of us -- from first-year TAs to the most experienced instructors -- is that most of us have had zero formal training in how to maximize the accessibility of the materials we create!  I recently received one-on-one training from a specialist and would like to share and promote the concrete things you can do with PowerPoint slides to massively increase their accessibility.  Dr. Alaina Beaver, an expert in the field of universal design, will also be present to answer questions and offer suggestions about increasing accessibility of our materials."



The lunch hour brown bag series offers an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, research assistants, and faculty in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to present current research, stories of recent travels to conduct scientific work, or other science related topics. This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses, and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.

Info/HCC Seminar: Ricarose Roque
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Title: Sweatpants Talk: “Supporting Diverse Participation in Creative Computing"

Abstract: In this “sweatpants” talk, I describe the challenges and opportunities that emerged from my past work engaging kids and families in creative computing to discuss next steps and new possibilities. For three years, I worked with staff at community centers that served low-income families to design and implement a program called Family Creative Learning (FCL). In FCL, kids and parents created and learned together using creative technologies like Scratch and MaKey MaKey. Through studies of families’ participation, I identified the ways that kids and parents developed as computational creators — people who could use computing to create things they cared about. However, I saw challenges at the boundaries of FCL and families’ experiences. For example, some families continued creating together on their own, while others had challenges having access at home or creating the time and space to continue. Working with families also revealed gaps in the kinds of meaningf!
ul tools, activities, and environments for families of different configurations and from underrepresented groups in computing. After sharing my experiences, I will facilitate discussion unpacking the challenges and exploring the opportunities for design and research in supporting diverse participation in creative computing.

Bio: Ricarose Roque is an assistant professor in Information Science at the University of Colorado Boulder and a faculty associate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. She studies creative learning environments that enable young people to become computational creators, with a focus on young people from underrepresented groups in computing. Ricarose received a B.S. and M.Eng. in Computer Science and Engineering and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Media Arts and Sciences -- all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

About the Info/HCC Series:
The Info/Human-Centered Computing series builds on the previously scheduled HCC seminar series in Computer Science, and we look forward to seeing faculty and students from CS, Information Science, ATLAS, CMCI, and other interested parts of campus. A seminar will be scheduled most weeks (alternating between ENVD and DLC), and will include internal and external talks and activities to help support our community.

Event Image Science Discovery's Teen Science Cafe: "The Physics of Ultra-Cold Atoms"
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

In the CU Physics department, we deal with the very, very cold—colder than anywhere else in the universe. While the coldest reaches of outer space are a hundred times colder than Earth's temperatures, our cloud of atoms are another million times colder than space.

When atoms become this cold, they not only begin to move very slowly, they also begin to act strangely. The strange behavior is a result of the quantum mechanics world taking over—a world where the atoms act less like particles and more like waves, similar to light waves and ocean waves. This results in a new state of matter called the Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC).

Come and join Catherine Klauss for a special tour of JILA and see what we can learn about atoms and other fundamental laws of nature by studying Bose-Einstein Condensates. She will also talk about how lasers and magnets can be used to get atoms colder than anywhere else in the universe.
Event Image AIA Lecture Series: New Perspectives on Ancient Urbanism
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Although we've always known that cities were one of the most important features of the Greek and Roman world, we've actually had very little idea about basic aspects of the urbanism of the ancient world, such as how many of these settlements there were, where they were distributed and how they changed over time, how large they were, and how many people lived in them compared to villages, hamlets, and farms. 
In this talk, CU's own John Hanson will attempt to answer some of these questions, drawing on the new research on ancient urbanism that has been put forward in his forthcoming book, and explore what it can tell us about what it was like to live in the ancient world and how it compared to the medieval and modern world.

Event Image Monitoring Climate from Space: Challenges, Opportunities, and LASP Contributions
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Earth’s climate is a manifestation of a long-term balance of energy flows. Climate change occurs when there are energy imbalances, but these accumulate on much longer time scales than regular seasonal or annual cycles, for example. Monitoring climate trends globally from space thus presents a challenge to our observational capabilities: Measurements must be accurate and instruments must maintain accuracy over long periods of time. In this talk, CU Boulder/LASP Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Peter Pilewskie will discuss how accurate our measurements need to be to detect trends in climate and to attribute them to underlying causes, the limitations of instruments currently flying and new initiatives to develop a robust climate-observing system. LASP is at the forefront of these initiatives, with novel instruments and mission concepts to meet these challenges.

Grief Support Group
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Experiencing grief can be an overwhelming experience and is often confusing and frightening. Although bereavement can be quite painful, it is not a sickness or abnormal condition. It is not something to be “cured” or “fixed.” Rather, it is part of the natural human response to losing someone close to us—the cost of loving and being loved. This group will meet once a week in a group setting for those who are recently bereaved or just beginning the grief process. Sessions include information about grief, support to determine your own needs and coping skills, and time to share experiences. Handouts will provide additional information that participants can share with others.

A licensed staff counselor will facilitate the group process, providing information and understanding in a safe, supportive, and accepting environment.

Persistent search in single and multiple con fined domains: a velocity-jump process model

We analyze velocity-jump process models of persistent search for a single target on a bounded domain. The searcher proceeds along ballistic trajectories and is absorbed upon collision with the target boundary. When reaching the domain boundary, the searcher chooses a random direction for its new trajectory. For circular domains and targets, we can approximate the mean rst passage time (MFPT) using a discrete Markov chain approximation of the search process. Our analysis and numerical simulations reveal that the time to find the target decreases for targets closer to the domain boundary. When there is a small probability of direction-switching within the domain, we find the time to the target decreases slightly with the turning probability. We also extend our exit time analysis to the case of partitioned domains, where there is a single target within one of multiple disjoint subdomains. Given an average time of transition between domains <T>, we find that the optimal rate of transition that minimizes the time to fi nd the target obeys βmin ∝ 1/√<T>.

CompSci Colloquium: Behrouz Touri on Stochastic Adventures in Systems & Controls
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Stochastic Adventures in Systems and Controls 

ABSTRACT: In this talk, we visit two systems and controls problems with stochastic components. The first problem, relates to the control of a safety critical autonomous vehicle. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition reachability result for an open and bounded safety set. In particular, we show that a stochastic system is controllable if and only if the expected system is controllable. 

The second problem relates to population dynamics. We show the fragility of the central notion of evolutionarily stable strategies in population games under multiple mutation. We develop a framework for the study of population games under multiple mutations and introduce new tools for the stability analysis of such games.

Event Image Messages From the Sky - Defining Humanity through the Cosmos
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Since antiquity, humans have relied on the sky to define almost every aspect of daily life. Far-flung civilizations developed notions of time-keeping with intricate calendars eerily alike Mythological tales, religious holidays, and astrological divination were born from the consistency of the night sky. Fleeting events like eclipses, comets, and supernovae foretold disastrous premonitions and cosmic disorder. Together, the sky has driven societal decisions for millennia and ultimately shaped the world we live in today.

In this conversation, we will explore the history of astronomy and its roots embedded in astrology. We will look at how dependence on the sky has sculpted the evolution of human civilization across the globe by looking at how different cultures around the world interpreted the events in the sky. We will examine how a natural fear of the unknown spurred events and decisions throughout history, and, looking forward, how this fear presents itself today, from asteroids to black holes and to the ultimate human quest of space exploration and settlement.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Ecological genetics of adaptation in Arabidopsis thaliana


Understanding the ecological and genetic mechanisms of adaptation is one of the major goals of evolutionary biology. What traits confer adaptation? What is the genetic basis of adaptive traits? Are there adaptive tradeoffs? We address these questions in populations of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana located near the northern (Sweden) and southern (Italy) limits of the native range. Reciprocal transplant experiments demonstrate strong geographic adaptation and field studies using Recombinant Inbred Lines grown at each of the parental sites identify Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for overall fitness. Genetic mapping of flowering time and freezing tolerance identify QTL that colocalize with fitness QTL--strong evidence that these are adaptive traits. Trade-offs are observed for some fitness QTL, and the ecological mechanisms identified thus far suggest strong trade-offs for major freezing tolerance QTL. In collaboration with the Thomashow lab at MSU, experiments are underway to identify the specific genes that contribute to freezing tolerance. Taken together, our results indicate that adaptation to different environments in Arabidopsis involves a surprisingly small number of QTL, and that the fitness effects at individual QTL can be substantial. This work adds to growing evidence that adaptive evolution may often involve major genes

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Grief Support Group
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Experiencing grief can be an overwhelming experience and is often confusing and frightening. Although bereavement can be quite painful, it is not a sickness or abnormal condition. It is not something to be “cured” or “fixed.” Rather, it is part of the natural human response to losing someone close to us—the cost of loving and being loved. This group will meet once a week in a group setting for those who are recently bereaved or just beginning the grief process. Sessions include information about grief, support to determine your own needs and coping skills, and time to share experiences. Handouts will provide additional information that participants can share with others.

A licensed staff counselor will facilitate the group process, providing information and understanding in a safe, supportive, and accepting environment.

Please email Andrew Frank (Andrew.D.Frank@Colorado.EDU) for more information or to register.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.
