CS Colloquium: Fraser Cameron (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Cyber Physical System: Automating the Control of Blood Glucose Levels in People with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

In this talk, Cameron will focus on the algorithms that calculate how much insulin to inject via an insulin pump in response to the signal(s) from a continuous glucose monitor (CGM). Three things complicate AP algorithm design: the relative severity of low vs. high glucose levels, the relative slowness of insulin vs. meal and exercise disturbances, and the weak capacity for raising the glucose levels by suspending insulin delivery.

As a CPS, the AP needs to be robust to adverse events and configuration changes. It needs to guard against device failure and removal, and the variety of people and their lives. Accelerometers, for instance, can measure activity and torso orientation, which can help improve exercise response, meal detection, and removal of orientation-dependent sensor anomalies. Likewise, analytic and hardware redundancy can help adapt models and detect poor calibration and pump failures early. Cameron will illustrate the key aspects of the AP problem, and present clinical and simulation results for various personal and published AP implementations. Lastly, he will discuss safety algorithms and the future of the AP project.

About Fraser Cameron: In 2006, while working at NASA AMES, Fraser Cameron sat down for lunch with a friend who had type 1 diabetes and funding for a grad student. Under the tutelage of Günter Niemeyer in Mechanical Engineering, Fraser received his PhD in 2010 from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University with the thesis title "Explicitly Minimizing Clinical Risk through Closed-loop Control of Blood Glucose in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus". Since graduation, Fraser's postdoc has continued his collaboration with Wayne Bequette (Chemical and Biological Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), the medical doctors at CU Denver and Stanford, and others. His research focuses on the artificial pancreas project, seeking to reduce the burden of glucose regulation for people with type 1 diabetes. This has included the core control algorithm and the safety features to make it robust.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

Event Image Black Holes
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Among the most mysterious and exotic objects in the Universe, Black Holes tantalize everyone that learns about them. An object that is both immensely massive and infinitely small is a seemingly floating contradiction in space. "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" explores the power and grace of these cosmic beasts. CU's own Dr. Andrew Hamilton was the science advisor for the program. "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity is for me the culmination of a dream many years in the making," said Hamilton. "The show marries science and art in a new way that compromises neither. In particular, the show breaks new ground in visualizing accurately what Einstein's equations predict about what really happens inside black holes. What actually happens looks nothing like, but is at least as fantastic as, any Hollywood rendering."

Event Image Supervolcanoes
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

The scene was 74,000 years ago, on the island of Sumatra. A volcanic eruption triggered the sudden and violent collapse of a vast regional plateau. Toba, as the volcano is known today, was the largest volcanic eruption in the last 25 million years. But Earth has seen far larger. 250 million years ago, an eruption in what's now Siberia lasted a million years and was probably responsible for the greatest episode of mass extinction in Earth's history.

Super Volcanoes explores rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The story of these big blow-outs is a tale of havoc and mayhem: mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. In this unique immersive experience, audiences will explore the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system. Can a supervolcano erupt in our own time? The answer is surprisingly close to home.

Event Image Colorado Skies
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Our "Colorado Skies" lecture series takes you on a journey through our night sky here in Colorado. This one hour program is broken down into two parts. First is the star talk about the night sky. We explore the stars, constellations and the overall mechanics of how the sky and objects within it move. This is a great chance for members of our audience to ask questions about their favorite constellation or what the sky looks like at the Equator or any other place on earth. The second half of the show is based on a selected topic, from Mars to Black Holes to the nature of science. Colorado Skies is a different show each week. As the sky changes and so do the hot topics of Astronomy, "Colorado Skies" will be your gateway to knowing the cosmos.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

Event Image Supervolcanoes
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The scene was 74,000 years ago, on the island of Sumatra. A volcanic eruption triggered the sudden and violent collapse of a vast regional plateau. Toba, as the volcano is known today, was the largest volcanic eruption in the last 25 million years. But Earth has seen far larger. 250 million years ago, an eruption in what's now Siberia lasted a million years and was probably responsible for the greatest episode of mass extinction in Earth's history.

Super Volcanoes explores rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The story of these big blow-outs is a tale of havoc and mayhem: mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. In this unique immersive experience, audiences will explore the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system. Can a supervolcano erupt in our own time? The answer is surprisingly close to home.

Event Image Black Holes
9:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Among the most mysterious and exotic objects in the Universe, Black Holes tantalize everyone that learns about them. An object that is both immensely massive and infinitely small is a seemingly floating contradiction in space. "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" explores the power and grace of these cosmic beasts. CU's own Dr. Andrew Hamilton was the science advisor for the program.

"Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity is for me the culmination of a dream many years in the making," said Hamilton. "The show marries science and art in a new way that compromises neither. In particular, the show breaks new ground in visualizing accurately what Einstein's equations predict about what really happens inside black holes. What actually happens looks nothing like, but is at least as fantastic as, any Hollywood rendering."

Students may incur late and service fee charges if the scholarship money is late.

Please report any scholarships not awarded by CU-Boulder through your MyCU student portal as soon as possible. If you are receiving a multi-year award, only report the amount that you are receiving for fall 2014 and spring 2015. If you receive a scholarship payment directly, you are obliged to notify us. Reported scholarships will show on your financial aid status as anticipated private scholarships. The anticipated amounts will be adjusted once CU-Boulder receives the scholarship payment.

Event Image Changing Terrain: New Models for Humanities Graduate Study and Scholarly Communication
4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

The landscape of graduate study in the humanities is changing. Now more than ever, humanities scholars use a wide variety of platforms to collaborate with peers and to share their research with many kinds of audiences. Scholars are embracing an ever-broader range of intellectually stimulating careers in, around, and beyond the academy. At the same time, universities increasingly rely on contingent labor to fill teaching needs, making it increasingly difficult for recent graduates to join the ranks of the faculty. Given all of these changes, how can humanities graduate programs best equip their students not only to excel in their research and teaching, but also for the careers they pursue after completing their studies? Drawing on her work at the Modern Language Association, the Scholarly Communication Institute, and the Scholars’ Lab at the University of Virginia, Katina Rogers will discuss strategies to support professionalization, public scholarship, and career development across a wide array of possible outcomes.
