Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Spring Conference: Students Can Learn Hard Things: Transforming Our Courses by Teaching What Matters
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

(9:00 - 9:15am Welcome & Introduction)

9:15 - 10:30am
Students Can Learn Hard Things: Transforming Our Courses by Teaching What Matters Most
Matthew Sanders, Associate Professor, Utah State University

Our disciplines and fields of study are rich with concepts and theories that transform the way students see, think about, and engage the world. This transformation is what draws us to dedicate our careers to research and teaching, and we want that for our undergraduate students. Yet, many of these threshold concepts and theories are complicated and therefore get watered down or even skipped in undergraduate curricula because it is often assumed that they are too difficult to teach and learn. But such concepts can and should be taught. Students can learn hard things. By mastering hard things, students transform into more capable and energetic learners.

1:15 PM - 2:30 PM


Bystander Training: Intervention Skill Development as a Path Through the Liminal Space

Teresa Wroe and Lee Scriggins, Community Health, Wardenburg Health Services

Potentially harmful encounters have often been conceptualized as occurring between an agent and a target. The bystander framework theorizes the role of others, and provides a standpoint from which people can act as neither perpetrators nor victims. This perspective is a foundational shift (a threshold concept) and enables people to see themselves as active agents outside the closed victim perpetrator dyad. We believe this perspective shift is accomplished best through active experimentation, testing, and skill building. The experience of attempting to shape potentially harmful dynamics, and the meaning made of these experiences can create a fundamental shift in agency that is useful in the classroom, as well as for lifelong efficacy in teaching and professional engagement. This session will give an overview of the program and assessment underway on Bystander Training at CU Boulder, and will introduce concrete skills that can support a creative, flexible learning environment that is inclusive and accessible.

Event Image Spring Conference: Teaching Rhetorical Analysis as a First Step of Critical Thinking
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM


Teaching Rhetorical Analysis as a First Step of Critical Thinking in the Social Sciences and Humanities

Jennifer Cullison, Lead 2013–14, History

Are you teaching in a discipline that usually requires college-level research and writing assignments? Helping students identify how common, everyday arguments in the media and popular culture are strategically persuasive can be a pedagogical segue toward students’ deeper critical thinking. In this workshop, we will explore possible lesson plans for teaching students how to identify the rhetoric that authors use to convince readers of their arguments (or products). We will then discuss how to bridge from this level of thinking toward critical engagement in academic research, so that students learn how to question deeply and build theses that result in discovery of new perspectives and knowledge.

3:00 PM - 4:15 PM


Applying Cognitive Awareness Concepts to the Pedagogy of Music

Sarah Stoneback, Instructor, Regis University

Each music student hears, feels, comprehends and experiences musical passages differently. Through my evidence-based research, I have developed a structural and systematic approach to teaching difficult concepts in music, which includes: 1) visualization 2) technical facilitation 3) practice techniques 4) listening skills—pitch and interval identification/recognition, and 5) verbal communication between student/teacher. In my demonstration, I provide concepts and practices for teacher instruction inspired from Border’s work on Kolb. This method has proven to invigorate and enthuse students and to increase their learning.

3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Using a Jigsaw Method to Teach Science Labs
Micah Battson, PhD Candidate, CSU

Teaching a laboratory course can be hard, especially when you’re facilitating group work with students. This workshop will introduce the concept of the Jigsaw Method of teaching that is currently being used in an undergraduate science lab at CU Boulder. By adapting this method to your individual teaching needs you will discover new ways to improve student engagement, enjoyment and performance in the classroom. We will also put a particular emphasis on applying this method to the teaching of Threshold Concepts within your own disciplines.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Spring Conference: Breaking the Fourth Wall - Pedagogical Shifts and Liminal Space
9:00 AM - 10:15 AM


Breaking the Fourth Wall: Pedagogical Shifts and Liminal Space in Diverse Undertakings
Polly McLean, Professor, CMCI

This talk explores the changing context of teaching and learning practices as a way to ensure a more critical role in rethinking diversity as a frontier threshold concept. Moving away from the romanticized multiculturalism thesis, which has accomplished little in way of producing a newer and richer America in form and content(think Ferguson), we will explore the ways in which universities create boundaries (and more) when it comes to diversity—between different content areas, between categories of learners, offering each access to selected forms of knowledge. Using the learning contract(the cultural tool—aka the syllabus) that is the framework of student learning, we will explore how “troublesome knowledge”, a feature of diversity, can transform learners and teachers alike to allow fora richer, more engaging and transformative content experience.

 

Event Image Spring Conference: Close Reading as a Threshold Concept: “Aha!” Moments in the Literature Classroom
10:45 AM - 12:00 PM


Close Reading as a Threshold Concept: “Aha!” Moments in the Literature Classroom

Teresa Nugent, Lecturer, English and Continuing Education

Despite the fact that close reading has been a mantra in literature courses for the last century, many students struggle with this fundamental concept. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how thinking about close reading as a threshold concept can help our students achieve “Aha!” moments. We will explore how the idea of a threshold concept can, itself, become a transformative threshold concept by offering both instructors and students a cognitive and affective roadmap for the experience of learning. By enhancing students’ awareness of the process of learning, we can help them become more open and engaged in their own learning experiences.

Event Image Spring Conference: Interdisciplinary Holism - Teaching the Unbelievable
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM


Interdisciplinary Holism: Teaching the Unbelievable

John Kineman, Senior Research Scientist, CIRES

The Western World does not have a general concept of a whole system, let alone a general theory of whole systems. Our scientific world view has focused on parts of systems and compartmentalized disciplines that do their work in academic 'silos'. Despite many urgent calls for interdisciplinary, complex, and whole thinking to address local to global socio-ecological sustainability, historical traditions in the sciences serve to keep 'hard' and 'soft' disciplines separate. An experimental Seminar was conducted in the Fall of 2014 in the Environmental Studies Program to explore approaches and barriers to whole system thinking. In this workshop we will go over lessons learned and discuss various approaches to bridging the soft-hard gap and developing a language for whole systems dialogue.

Event Image Spring Conference: What Is This Thing Called Diversity?

What Is This Thing Called Diversity?

Anthony Kelley, PhD Candidate, Philosophy

Diversity is often touted as an educational resource that may be put to good use in the classroom. But what is it? And how exactly might it be used to enhance students’ learning experience? This workshop is designed to give educators the tools to meet the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds and to harness this diversity as an asset in teaching.

Talk Title: “The genomic architecture of psychiatric traits: Or how I learned to stop worrying about the needle and love the haystack.”

 Abstract: The goal of the Davis lab is the development and application of novel approaches that integrate insights from systems biology to further understand the genomic architecture of behavioral traits. This talk will focus on methods we are using to integrate functional data with statistical models in our investigations of genetic architecture. To illustrate these approaches I will present examples of our work on autism spectrum disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Tourette Syndrome. Additionally, I will describe results from recent experiments aimed at defining the relationship between risk from rare variants and polygenic liability among individuals with psychiatric phenotypes. Finally, I will outline some exciting plans for studies on the horizon making use of the knowledge we have gained thus far.

Title: The role of diversity in the computations of the olfactory system

Abstract: A key question in neuroscience is to understand how neuronal circuits process sensory information and generate behaviors in response to that information.  Consider the sense of smell for instance.  In a single sniff, mammals can synthesize data about dozens of volatile chemical compounds to create a singular unified perception, like the smell of coffee.  In the olfactory system of mice, feedforward projections from the principal cells of the main olfactory bulb relay information about these odors directly to cortical regions as an early step toward forming a sensory percept.  Feedback projections from these cortical areas back to early olfactory structures dynamically impact the way incoming odor information is processed based on such features as experience, memory, and brain state.  How these two computations are done, and how the olfactory system uses these computations to generate behavior remain open questions. In my talk, I will discuss our recent work tacking 2 aspects of this processing in the olfactory system. 1) How the biophysical properties of neurons in the bulb improve information transmission in the feedforward direction. 2) How the anatomy of connections from the higher processing areas shape the encoding of odors at the early stages.

Conservative Thought and Policy finalist to speak at CU

The University of Colorado Boulder has announced William Voegeli as a finalist for the position of Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy in the 2015-16 academic year. Voegeli will visit the CU-Boulder campus and give a talk that is open to the public.

Liberalism, Conservatism and Compassion
Speaker: William Voegeli, Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy (2015-16 ) finalist
Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015
5:00 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
Hale Science Building, Room 230
1350 Pleasant Street (Broadway and Pleasant)
University of Colorado Boulder

This talk is free and open to the public.

Voegeli is senior editor at the Claremont Review of Books at the Claremont Institute in California. Since 2007, he has also been a visiting scholar at the Henry Salvatori Center at Claremont McKenna College.

Voegeli holds a Ph.D. in political science from Loyola University. He is the author of two books: "Never Enough: America’s Limitless Welfare State" and "The Pity Party: Mean-Spirited Diatribe against Liberal Compassion."

He has published numerous articles in The Los Angeles Times, Commentary, National Review, The Federalist and other publications.

The visiting scholar search committee is chaired by Keith Maskus, economics professor of distinction at the CU-Boulder College of Arts and Sciences. The committee includes both internal and external members.

The committee has been working to identify finalists for the visiting-scholar position, which is a one-year appointment. The committee has sought “highly visible” scholars who are “deeply engaged in either the analytical scholarship or practice of conservative thinking and policymaking or both.”

The Conservative Thought and Policy Program was launched in fall 2013 with the appointment of Steven Hayward as the inaugural visiting scholar. Bradley Birzer holds the position this year.

The Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy is a pilot program supported by private funds. More than 20 donors have raised $1 million to support the program.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Bringing Heterogeneous Resources to Cloud Data Centers

ABSTRACT: The dominant approach in offering cloud services today is based on homogeneous commodity resources: large numbers of inexpensive machines, interconnected by off-the-shelf networking equipment, supported by stock disk drives. However, cloud service providers are unable to use this platform to satisfy the requirements of many important and high-value classes of applications, such as those in the geosciences, interactive business analytics, and non-traditional map/reduce data processing tasks.

This talk introduces the HARNESS European research project, whose aim is to bring innovative and heterogeneous resources, such FPGAs, GPUs, SSDs, network middleboxes, and software routers, into cloud platforms.

BIOGRAPHY: Alexander L. Wolf is a Professor in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. Prior to this he spent more than a decade on the University of Colorado faculty, where he was the Charles Victor Schelke Chair in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and Professor of Computer Science. Previously, he was a Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey.  During a two-year leave from CU he helped found the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Lugano, Switzerland.

Wolf's interests span the areas of distributed systems, networking, and software engineering. His achievements include seminal work in software architecture, business analytics, and information-centric networks. He is currently involved in projects having to do with cloud computing, data-centre networking, and service-based systems hosted on MANETs. He is the Coordinator of the EC FP7 HARNESS project.

Wolf serves as President of the ACM, and is a Fellow of the ACM, IEEE and BCS.
A Seminar with Amina Nawaz
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The CU Mediterranean Group and collaborating programs and departments present:

Beyond Crypto-Muslims: Perspectives on the Moriscos in the Early Modern Mediterranean
a seminar for faculty, graduate students and advanced undergraduates featuring CU Boulder alumna Amina Nawaz (PhD Candidate: St John’s College, Cambridge University)

Thursday, 15 January 2015, at 4pm at Atlas 229 

----
Shortly after the Christian conquest of Granada in 1492, religious and cultural practices associated with Islam and Muslims were banned across Spain.  Despite this outlawing of their faith, many Muslims in the Iberian peninsula continued to practice Islam in varied ways.  This paper examines the religious texts of these communities, known by historians as Moriscos, in order to explore what their devotional interests were within these new contexts.  The extant manuscripts of the Moriscos reveal much about the intersections of religious communities within early modern Spain and the Mediterranean region and challenge our understandings of 'minorities' and 'majorities' in this space. 

This seminar will briefly outline the historical contexts of the period before turning to examine a selection of Morisco devotional manuscripts in greater detail.  The manuscripts we will examine include Arabic, Romance and Aljamiado (Romance language written in the Arabic script) and will include samples from the sixteenth century Spanish context and seventeenth century North African context.   All texts will be presented alongside English translations. 
---
After graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in History, Amina began her graduate studies in the UK, obtaining her Masters from the School of Oriental and African Studies in the University of London and completing her PhD in the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Cambridge.  Her doctoral dissertation examined the sixteenth century devotional writings of the Moriscos in Spain. She has also studied Arabic in Damascus, Syria and Cairo, Egypt.  Amina is currently a Visiting Lecturer and member of the Post-Doctoral Research Group "Reason and Rationality in the Life and Thought of Muslims in Pluralistic Contexts"  at the Center for Islamic Theology in the University of Tubingen, Germany.

Title: “Self-directed learning: Understanding the interactions between decision making, learning, and memory.”

Abstract: My research explores how people learn from their interactions with the world around them. For example, how are we so good at figuring out how something works by tinkering with it? How do we formulate questions with the goal of gaining knowledge and reducing our uncertainty? How do our choices to gather information affect our memory or conceptual knowledge? Such questions strike at the heart of what makes us such an adaptable and intelligent species.  In this talk, I will overview recent progress in my lab understanding how people gather information in "self-directed" learning environments (i.e.,  those where the learner is in control of what to learn about and when to learn it).  A primary objective of my work is to develop detailed computational models of human learning, and my talk will highlight the important role that such models can play in helping to understand self-directed learning as a core aspect of human behavior.  I will conclude by discussing implications of this work for education, instructional design, as well as the basic science of human learning.

TITLE:
  Self-directed learning: Understanding the interactions between decision making, learning, and memory”

ABSTRACT:
  My research explores how people learn from their interactions with the world around them. For example, how are we so good at figuring out how something works by tinkering with it? How do we formulate questions with the goal of gaining knowledge and reducing our uncertainty? How do our choices to gather information affect our memory or conceptual knowledge? Such questions strike at the heart of what makes us such an adaptable and intelligent species.  In this talk, I will overview recent progress in my lab understanding how people gather information in "self-directed" learning environments (i.e.,  those where the learner is in control of what to learn about and when to learn it).  A primary objective of my work is to develop detailed computational models of human learning, and my talk will highlight the important role that such models can play in helping to understand self-directed learning as a core aspect of human behavior.  I will conclude by discussing implications of this work for education, instructional design, as well as the basic science of human learning.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

What is sound? What is happening around you (and inside you) when you play the guitar, strike a gong, blow on a bottle, pop a balloon, or crack a bullwhip. How quiet can we make a room? How loud can we shout? Who can hear better: kids or parents? Why might that be? How could you ever hope to measure "loudness" or "pitch"? And what would happen if you sucked all the air out of steel barrel? Saturday's Wizard show Boom! The Chemistry of Sound and Music will explore these, and many more questions!

These free public performances are geared for kids in grades five to nine, but all ages are welcome! Visit the CU Wizards webpage for more details. 
Character Makeup (ages 10-18)

We will study and employ different effects a makeup designer might encounter in designing a variety of characters in Shakespeare's plays. Techniques used will include: shading, feature enhancement and diminishing, age adjustment, and feature deformity. The class will culminate in a full-face makeup that interprets a specific character from Shakespeare's canon. (Teacher: Roxxy Duda)

Talk title: Being by doing: Implicating the self to influence behavior

Abstract: I will begin by describing a series of recent experiments that demonstrate how the self can be harnessed to influence consequential, free-choice behavior. We find that people are more likely to engage in prosocial behavior (e.g., vote in an election, help someone in need), and less likely to engage in antisocial behavior (e.g., to cheat), when noun-based wording emphasizes the relevance of those behaviors to the self-concept (e.g., “…to be a voter…” or “Please don’t be a cheater.”). This is compared to a control condition using verb-based wording (e.g., “…to vote…” or “Please don’t cheat.”). Next, I will show how noun wording, in conjunction with behavior, can actually re-shape people’s working self-concepts. In the last part of the talk, I will demonstrate another way in which identity can be leveraged to change behavior: by redefining that identity in terms that make it appealing to the group you are trying to influence. I show this in the context of an intervention to increase healthy eating behavior in teenagers.

There are over 10 million children in the U.S. speaking languages other than English, 85% of whom speak Spanish as their other language. These children have enormous potential, but historically have not been well served by U.S. schools. In addition, school programs provided only in English often result in both Spanish language loss and a missed opportunity to foster bilingualism and intercultural understanding among all children. CU-Boulder School of Education Professors Kathy Escamilla, Lucinda Soltero-González, & Sue Hopewell will discuss Literacy Squared®—a program designed to accelerate the development of English as well as maintain and develop Spanish in emerging bilingual children—as well as suggest research-based strategies to make the most of the rich multicultural resources of children in the U.S. and encourage bilingual literacy.

Flutes, Wine, and Astronomy: Shamans in Early East Asia?
7:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Chinese archaeologists have identified a number of archaeological manifestations that they attribute to shamanism. These include evidence of music (drums, flutes, bells), alcoholic beverages, and evidence of worship of the sky. Dr. Nelson will examine the Chinese evidence and then consider it in the broader perspectives of shamanism in East Asia from the Neolithic era to the present.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

CS Colloquium: Leon Osterweil (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Reasoning about Precisely Defined Processes

ABSTRACT: Processes are pervasive in very diverse fields of endeavor, including government, engineering, management, healthcare, scientific investigation and education. In most of these fields, however, the importance of processes is underappreciated, and processes that are often critical to the success of activities in these fields are poorly understood. As a consequence, these processes are not-uncommonly performed poorly, often leading to inefficiencies, errors and sometimes even death. This talk suggests that a suitably clear, precise and powerful executable process definition language and process analysis tools can make important contributions in all of these domains by supporting continuous process improvement.  The Little-JIL process definition language is presented as an example of such a process definition language, and the use of various analyzers is presented to show how these analyzers can identify process defects and support process improvement. The talk then provides examples from such domains as healthcare and elections. The application of the FLAVERS finite state analyzer is presented to show how violations of correct process event sequencing can be identified or shown to be impossible. The application of Fault Tree Analysis is presented to show how single points of failure and vulnerabilities to attack can be identified. The use of discrete event simulation to study resource allocation in support of process execution will also be presented as time permits. These examples are used to demonstrate desirable features of process definition languages and suggest directions for future software definition and analysis research.

BIO: Leon J. Osterweil  is a professor in the School of Computer Science, co-director of the Laboratory for Advanced Software Engineering Research (LASER), and founding co-director of the Electronic Enterprise Institute, all at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he also served as Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics from 2001-2005. Previously he had been a professor in, and chair of, computer science departments at both the University of California Irvine, and the University of Colorado Boulder. He was the founding director of the Irvine Research Unit in Software (IRUS) and the Southern California SPIN. Professor Osterweil has also been a Visiting Professor at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) in Kanazawa, Japan.

Professor Osterweil was awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Outstanding Research Award for Lifetime Excellence in Research in 2003, the ACM SIGSOFT Influential Educator Award in 2010, and the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award in 2014. His 1987 paper, “Software Processes are Software Too,” is one of the the most-frequently cited papers of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) series, and was selected as the most influential paper of ICSE 9, awarded as a 10-year retrospective. Prof. Osterweil is a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery. He has been a member of the editorial boards of such journals as ACM Transactions on Software Engineering Methods (TOSEM), IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE), Automated Software Engineering, the International Journal of Software and Informatics, IEEE Software, and Software Process Improvement and Practice. Prof. Osterweil has served as the program committee chair or general chair for many conferences and workshops, most notably as program chair for the 16th International Conference on Software Engineering, and general chair of the 28th International Conference on Software Engineering, and the Sixth ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE). He has consulted for such organizations as IBM, Bell Laboratories, SAIC, MCC, TRW, and the Software Engineering Institute’s Process Program Advisory Board.  

Dr. Osterweil’s research focuses on languages for the clear and precise definition of processes. Currently his work is concentrated on the development of the Little-JIL process definition language, and its application to defining processes, and identifying defects, in such domains as healthcare, software development, elections, labor-management disputes and scientific data processing.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: The Psychology of Social Class

Abstract: 
Social class is defined by an individual’s level of material and social resources and perceptions of one’s position in the class hierarchy relative to others. Though scholars have examined social class for centuries—particularly in sociology, health psychology, and epidemiology—social-psychological insights into the experience of social class have lagged far behind those of other disciplines. In this talk, I will discuss research that examines how social class influences patterns of social perception and relationship strategies. Specifically, lower social class heightens awareness of the mental states of others whereas higher social class heightens independence and personal control beliefs. The talk will highlight varied methods (e.g., experimental, ethological, psychophysiological) used in the psychological study of social class along with the future directions of this research.

Event Image “Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece”: A Lecture with Devin Naar
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

"'They Threw Our Bones into the Sea': Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece"

A lecture with Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. Naar


Monday, January 26 @ 7PM
Old Main Theater
Free and Open to the Public
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

In conjunction with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27, 2015, the Program in Jewish Studies welcomes this year's Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. NaarMarsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington, for a lecture and colloquium.


The question of collaboration remains one of the most sensitive and contested issues regarding the study and memory of the Holocaust in Greece today, especially in the major port city of Salonica (Thessaloniki). On the eve of the war, Salonica was home to the country’s largest Jewish population, numbering 56,000; in 1945, less than 2,000 remained. Another casualty of the occupation was the city’s vast Jewish burial ground, which covered more than eighty acres and was once the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. During the Nazi occupation, local authorities initiated the destruction of the cemetery and subsequently erected the city’s university campus on top of it. Marble tombstones were used for construction projects throughout the city. 


This presentation will explore the rationale underpinning the demolition of the Jewish cemetery and how the processes at work during the Nazi’s occupation provided an opportunity to resolve an on-going conflict regarding the status of the Jewish burial ground and preexisting aspirations to expand the nearby university. During the pre-war period, local Jewish leaders argued that the tombstones “spoke,” that the inscriptions narrated the history of the city and ought to be preserved as monuments of national patrimony. The competing interests came to a head during the occupation. Even if the stones “spoke,” who was prepared to listen?


Drawing on previously unstudied archives of the Jewish community, records from the local chamber of commerce, and newspapers in Judeo-Spanish, Greek, and French, this talk presents a window into the confrontation and negotiation between the Jewish community of Salonica and the Greek state over urban space and the national narrative in the context of the Nazi occupation. Controversy over the place of the Jewish dead ultimately served as a metaphor for the uncertain place of the living.


Devin E. Naar is the Marsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington. He completed his Ph.D. in history at Stanford University where his dissertation, “Jewish Salonica and the Making of the ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans,’ 1890-1943,” received the department’s award for best dissertation. A former Fulbright scholar to Greece, Naar has served as a fellow in the Society of Scholars at the University of Washington Center for the Humanities, and also sits on the academic advisory council of the Center for Jewish History in New York.

Talk title: The Influence of Context and Changing Information on Choice

Abstract: 
Everyday we make hundreds of choices. Some are seemingly trivial -- what cereal should I eat for breakfast? Others have long lasting implications -- what stock should I invest in? Despite their obvious differences, these two decisions have one important thing in common; both are sensitive to context. In this talk, I will first describe my research investigating how context influences preferences in multi-alternative, multi-attribute choice behavior. I will provide experimental evidence that context effects from consumer choice research arise in other domains such as perception. This suggests context effects are a general feature of human choice behavior and calls for a common theoretical explanation that applies across paradigms. I will present a new model called the multi-attribute Linear Ballistic Accumulator (MLBA) model as a generalized explanation of these effects.

In the second half of the talk, I will describe my work investigating the impact of changing information on choice behavior. Most past decision research has focused on “stationary” decisions where a choice is made on the basis of fixed, unchanging information. However, in the real world, many decisions are made in the face of dynamically changing information. To assess how the decision process adapts to changes of information, I developed the piecewise Linear Ballistic Accumulator (pLBA) model. I will demonstrate the model using results from a simple perceptual decision-making task, and show how early information influences the integration of later information. The talk will conclude with a discussion of future directions including research investigating the impact of changing information on context effects in multi-alternative choice and the integration of the two models, MLBA and pLBA. I will also discuss future applications of the models to health-related decision-making.

Event Image Sylvia Wilkinson Presents Her New Novel: “Big Cactus”
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

The Friends of the CU Libraries will host Sylvia Wilkinson reading from and discussing her new engaging novel, Big Cactus. Big Cactus is a rollicking, yet poignant, account of plucky teenage Benny and his mission to take his headstrong 84-year-old Aunt Lucy on a road trip from North Carolina to see the giant saguaro cactus in Arizona.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Speaker: Patty Limerick, Center of the American West

“Fractured Disciplines Meet Hydraulic Fracturing:  A Cost/Benefit Analysis of Collaboration Between the Humanities and Natural Sciences”

The study of controversial environmental issues offers higher education a distinctive route to redemption and revitalization.  In the last half century, academic specialization has grown in power, both expanding and constraining our understanding of the world.  With its array of struggles and contests over natural resources, the contemporary American West offers a remarkable laboratory for experiments in reuniting the fractured world of expertise, with the issue of hydraulic fracturing offering a particularly promising prospect for hybrid approaches. In an era of anxiety about the decline in humanities majors and course enrollments, the need for cooperation between the humanities and natural sciences has never been more urgent.  And yet that collaboration can position people attempting this collaboration on a balance beam between risk and reward, frustration and satisfaction, vexation and exhilaration.  In this talk, Patty Limerick will offer a forthright consideration of adventures encountered and lessons learned on that balance beam.

Co-Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program and the School of the Environment and Sustainability.

Talk title: Novel epigenetic mechanisms of cocaine action and depression in mouse nucleus accumbens

Abstract: Neural function requires accurate control of gene transcription in response to environmental stimuli. Epigenetics plays a core role during this process by modulating gene expression without changing underlying DNA sequences. It has therefore been implicated in various neuropsychiatric disorders, though many of the details are still unknown. With help of modern genomic tools and novel epigenetic concepts largely developed in proliferating cultured cells, I aim to decipher out the epigenetic underpinnings of neural diseases in vivo by using mouse models of drug addiction and depression. 1) I found unique combinations of chromatin changes/signatures, which accompany cocaine’s regulation of gene expression in nucleus accumbens (NAc), a key brain reward region. Importantly, they have a widespread correlation with pre-mRNA alternative splicing. Based on this, I further identified a novel role of splicing factor A2BP1 in cocaine behavioral abnormalities. 2) Recently, TET oxidases were recognized to mediate the conversion of methylated DNA to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), which may lead to DNA demethylation. I found TET1 is selectively downregulated in NAc by repeated cocaine administration, which enhances behavioral responses to cocaine. Furthermore, I demonstrated 5hmC inductions at genes that have pivotal roles in drug addiction. Such alterations correlate with increased gene expression and alternative splicing. Additionally, certain 5hmC changes sustain long after cocaine exposure that indicates 5hmC as a persisting epigenetic mark in drug addiction. 3) We showed that β-catenin mediates pro-resilient effects after social defeat stress. Through genome-wide β-catenin enrichment mapping, we recognized Dicer1-important in microRNA biogenesis--as a novel β-catenin target. Moreover, after excising β-catenin from NAc in the context of chronic stress we displayed β-catenin-dependent microRNA regulation associated with resilience. In summary, my studies reveal several novel modes of epigenetic regulation of cocaine action and depression, and hence provide new insight into the biological basis of neuropsychiatric disorders. I look forward to continuing my neuroepigenetic efforts to study more biologically significant questions across a broader range of neuropsychiatric disorders.

CS Colloquium: Jan Hoffman (Yale)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Formal Reasoning About Quantitative Properties of Software

ABSTRACT: Quantitative properties such as execution time, memory consumption, and power usage determine whether a software system is useful in practice. A precise understanding of quantitative properties of
software is also essential to ensure safety (e.g., no stack overflow) and security (e.g., no side-channel vulnerabilities). Yet, it is still hard to reason about quantitative characteristics of software at development time.

In this talk, Hoffman will present novel techniques for modeling and analyzing quantitative properties of software. These techniques are designed to meet two major challenges of quantitative analyses: precision and compositionality.

First, he will present polynomial amortized resource analysis (PARA); a static analysis system for automatically deriving worst-case resource bounds which are parametric in the input sizes of programs. The analysis can be integrated in a type system (for functional programs) or a Hoare logic (for imperative programs). A novel algebraic structure, which we call multivariate resource polynomials, enables the reduction of bound inference to efficient LP solving. PARA is naturally compositional and derives bounds for a wide range of non-trivial programs. Experiments with implementations of PARA in the programming language Resource Aware ML and in the tool C4B for C programs demonstrate that the analysis is precise, efficient, and reliable.

Second, Hoffman will briefly describe two applications of the ideas of PARA to real-world problems: (1) a quantitative reasoning technique for proving lock freedom of concurrent data structures and (2) a framework
for deriving formally verified stack-space bounds for compiled x86 assembly code at the C level.

Finally, he will talk about future projects that use quantitative methods to reason about privacy and security.

BIO: Jan Hoffmann is an Associate Research Scientist in Zhong Shao's group at Yale University. His research interests are in the intersection of programming languages and formal methods with a focus on quantitative
properties of software. He is known for his work on automatic static cost analysis of programs and the design and implementation of Resource Aware ML.

As co-PI of the NSF-funded VeriQ project, co-PI of the DARPA-funded CURB project (award pending), and Key Personnel in the DARPA-funded HACMS project, he currently works on resource-bound analysis for C
programs, detection of space/time vulnerabilities in Java bytecode, and formal verification of quantitative properties of the CertiKOS hypervisor kernel.

Jan received his PhD from LMU Munich in 2011 under the direction of Martin Hofmann. He has been supported by scholarships of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German National Academic Foundation
(Studienstiftung). In the past five years, he coauthored 15 peer-reviewed articles that appeared at venues such as POPL, PLDI, LICS, CAV, and ESOP.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Title:
Searching for the Language Switch: The Invasion of Executive Control into the Psycholinguistics of Bilingualism 

Abstract: Switching back and forth between tasks is known to be more difficult than steadily performing a single task. From this perspective, people who speak more than one language regularly engage in a puzzling behavior often referred to as code-switching. Bilinguals spontaneously switch languages when conversing with other bilinguals, sometimes with great frequency, and even though nothing obvious compels them to do so. Experimental investigation confirms the presence of robust processing costs associated with both language switching and non-linguistic task switching but using methods that differ from naturally occurring switches in a number of critical ways. In this talk I will show that fully voluntary switching is less costly than previously assumed, sometimes even cost-free. In addition, direct comparisons between language- and task-switching, and analysis of control over unintended language switches, reveal dissociations in brain mechanisms underlying mixing in linguistic and non-linguistic domains, and preservation of control over language selection in aging. Such results imply that language control is a “special case” with modular mechanisms that have little to do with general executive control – and this seems inconsistent with reports that bilinguals might be more efficient switchers than monolinguals. I'll discuss what properties could make language special, and how a better understanding of this might help us achieve greater efficiency in switching in other domains (e.g., switching between writing a paper and checking e-mail).

Northern Lights, a concert of contemporary music, focuses on two of the most prominent living composers of our time, Kaija Saariaho and Osvaldo Golijov. Saariaho's hypnotic and meditative work Lichtbogen is paired with the folksy epic Ayre by Osvaldo Goijov. Together, they create a continuous and contrasting story of music for both the eyes and ears.

 The concert is presented in part by the Cultural Events Board and the Colorado New Music Ensemble and features members of the Colorado New Music Ensemble and guest artist Sarah Smith, soprano.
