Learner's Lunch: Typography: Just my Type
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

(Held in Norlin Library Room E113)  How typography flavors everything
Dave Underwood • Academic Technology Consulting Services
Which typeface is friendlier: Futura or Impact? How does tracking differ from kerning, and why does it matter? Or does it?  If you've ever asked yourself questions like these, you may be a "type wonk." That's okay, though, you're not alone. In fact, type should matter to everyone. After all, it says everything about how we communicate with text and it can underscore or derail our message with a single click.  In this session Dave Underwood, a graphic designer and certified type wonk, will introduce us to the wonder and the power of type, from understanding its effect on basic cognition to examining how it steers our emotions and beliefs (Did you know Helvetica was responsible for the start of the Vietnam War? We'll talk about that.). Please join us.

Event Image Excitons and Plasmons in Nanoscale Systems
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Big Energy Seminar Series and the Physics Department will sponsor a presentation by Dr. van de Lagemaat on Excitons and Plasmons in Nanoscale Systems

Due to growing populace and standard of living, many terawatts of energy will be needed in the near future. The sun is the largest source of carbon-neutral and renewable energy that we have available and it is the only source that can provide terawatts of energy without depleting rapidly or causing major environmental and climate concerns. To fulfill this role, revolutionary approaches to solar energy conversion are needed that provide energy at very high efficiency at very low prices. The unique properties of self-organic and nanoscale systems possibly enable such a future by combining ease of processing and low cost with third-generation photoconversion processes that enable high efficiency.

Examples of third generation photoconversion involve semiconductor quantum dots, carbon nanostructures and organic semiconductors. The presence of excitonic states in these systems at room temperature allows for processes such as multiple exciton generation, singlet fission and long-range energy transfer that are currently being researched for applications in the next generation of high efficiency solar energy conversion. These processes have been theorized to allow for the breaking of traditional limits to solar cell efficiency. However, much remains unknown about how to control these processes. A new approachto this control, which will be discussed in this talk, involves the coupling between excitons and surface plasmons in nanoscale systems and allows for the outcome of photoexcitation to be directed to a desired final state that most optimally converts sunlight into electrical energy or fuels. Approaches such as this can possibly drive future solar cell efficiencies above traditional barriers and provide one avenue to solving the energy problem.

Modeling Student Learning Moment-by-Moment

Ryan Baker

Julius and Rosa Sachs Distinguished Lecturer Columbia University Teachers College

ECCR 265, Thursday, October 25, 3:30-4:30 PM

In recent years, intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) have become an increasingly common part of American mathematics education. One feature that has supported this development is the student models within intelligent tutors, which have become increasingly accurate at detecting whether a student knows a skill at a given time. From a science of learning perspective, it can be equally important to know when and within which contexts learning occurs.

In this talk, I present a machine-learned model that assesses the probability that a student learned a skill at a specific learning opportunity. This model can be used to analyze which skills are learned through insight and "eureka" moments, and which skills are learned more gradually. I also discuss how the pattern of learning over time can be used to predict not just which students learn, and when they learn, but how robust a student's learning will be.

Ryan Shaun Joazeiro de Baker is the Julius and Rosa Sachs Distinguished Lecturer at Columbia University Teachers College for 2012-2013. He earned his Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University. Baker was previously Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Learning Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and he previously served as the first Technical Director of the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center DataShop, the largest public repository for data on the interaction between learners and educational software.

He is currently serving as the founding President of the International Educational Data Mining Society, and as Associate Editor of the Journal of Educational Data Mining. His research combines educational data mining and quantitative field observation methods in order to better understand how students respond to educational software, and how these responses impact their learning. He studies these issues within intelligent tutors, simulations, and educational games. In recent years, he and his colleagues have developed automated detectors that make inferences in real-time about students' engagement, meta-cognition, affect, and robust learning.

*This seminar is open to ALL students of ALL backgrounds and majors*

In this 6-credit course, students will explore the complexities of democracy, human rights, and social justice in Israel and the West Bank. This course introduces students to people, ideas, places, and organizations that articulate diverse, multiple and competing perspectives about justice, democracy, and human rights. We will explore how individuals and groups make sense of these concepts, and how diverse political commitments drive individual and collective choices and actions.

Beginning the second week in Jerusalem, students will participate in team-based service learning projects with non-profit organizations working in the region.  Students will have the opportunity to learn from and network with experts working in social justice, human rights and democracy in Israel and the Middle East.

The seminar will take students to various locations in Israel and the West Bank but will be based out of Jerusalem in the historic neighborhood of Talpiot in apartment-like suites. Founded in 1922, Talpiot has access to major shopping centers and public transportation.  It has become a cultural hub in Jerusalem, especially for the growing music scene.    
 
The course will be led by Professor Caryn Aviv, Senior Instructor in Secular Jewish Society and Civilization. She earned her PhD in sociology and anthropology at Loyola University in Chicago. Dr. Aviv conducts research on and teaches in the areas of gender, sexuality, Zionism, Israel, and contemporary Jewish cultures.
 
THERE ARE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM! Please contact our study abroad advisor, Sarah.Westmoreland@colorado.edu to learn more.

Event Image Batteries for Hybridization and Electrification of Vehicles
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

More than 30 percent of U.S. energy and 90 percent of oil consumption are used for road way transportation. Hybridization and electrification of vehicles on roadways are considered as major strategies for reducing dependence on oil and greenhouse gas and meeting the aggressive fuel economy standards.

Hybridization of conventional internal combustion engine vehicles with motors run on electricity from batteries can significantly improve fuel efficiency while electrocution allows switch of the fuel to electricity that could be domestic and cleaner. Batteries are critical components in hybridized and electrified vehicles to achieve their potential. The battery requirements are different in hybrid electric vehicle (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicle (BEV). Although significant progress has been made in the last decade especially for HEV batteries further improvement is cost, performance, durability, and safety of batteries are need particularly for PHEVs and BEVs.

In this presentation, we will discuss the requirements of batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles and state of the art of batteries for these vehicles and where the battery technology is going. We will focus on the lithium ion battery technology.
Event Image CS Colloquium: Kent Stevens on "Walking Like Dinosaurs"
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Walking with Like Dinosaurs

Kent A. Stevens

University of Oregon

ECCR 265

Thursday, November 1

3:30-4:30 PM

It is often presumed that sauropod dinosaurs walked like elephants, despite the fact that they may have shared little in common with modern elephants other than their both being quadrupedal, herbivorous, and large.  Likewise, sauropods are imagined to have used their long necks for high browsing, as giraffes often do, and to have held their heads high, as swans often do. Analogical reasoning based on superficial similarities with living animals underlies much of how we imagine dinosaurs, and sometimes leads to wild conjectures regarding sauropods because of their muchness.  After a brief review of what we know (and don’t know) about how sauropods looked, moved, and behaved, we will consider the role of computational modeling in trying to understand these extinct giants, in particular, how they walked.  Fossil trackways provide dramatic evidence for sauropod locomotion, when their giant footprints were imprinted in a compliant surface that subsequently turned to stone.  Trackway interpretation usually begins with the taxonomic classification of the trackmaker, based on the size, spacing, and morphology of the individual footprints.  But attempts to identify which taxon of sauropod created a given track often relies on assumptions about how the creatures walked, which introduces circularity when one subsequently attempts to understand their pattern of locomotion, which requires having first identified the trackmaker. Trackway interpretation is thus more poorly constrained than often recognized, and would require additional, independent lines of evidence, such as kinematics and dynamics. A few computational studies have introduced such notions through articulated models that simulate the sauropod’s pattern of locomotion. To be sufficiently concrete as to permit animation, these studies must incorporate a large number of rather specific presumptions about the trackmaker and its walking behavior. Instead, we have adopted an incremental strategy for the incorporation of such constraints which seeks to maximize what can be concluded from the fewest and most conservative assumptions while attempting to replicate fossil trackways and observable behaviors associated with locomotion.

Kent A. Stevens received an undergraduate degree in engineering (1969) and a masters in computer science (1971) at UCLA, with computer graphics thesis research on the Fisheye Transform, under Professor Leonard Kleinrock.  Since the early 70s, computer graphics has remained a central tool throughout his varied research career. During his Ph.D. studies at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory under the supervision of Professor David Marr, he used Lisp Machines to generate novel visual stimuli for psychophysical experiments and to visualize the results of perceptual algorithms. After Stevens received his Ph.D. in 1979, he was a Research Scientist position at the AI Laboratory until he joined the faculty of the University of Oregon in 1982 where he continued to use computer graphics primarily to create 3D visual stimuli to explore the strategies underlying monocular and binocular depth perception. His interest in human vision led to a US Patent for a graphical means to measure and correct metamorphopsia (a visual disorder often associated with macular degeneration).  He has been an industrial consultant regarding virtual reality, machine vision, and visual fight simulation. Since 1994, Stevens has also applied 3D computer graphics and digital animation techniques towards to create an interdisciplinary link with vertebrate paleontology.  Through the creation and animation of articulated digital models of dinosaur skeletons, Stevens has explored a variety of biomechanical questions that assist in the visualization of dinosaurs and the reconstruction of their appearance, movements, and behaviors.  Professor Stevens has consulted and appeared in BBC, National Geographic, NHK, Discovery Channel, and other video productions, creates digital media and interactive displays that are on exhibit in many museums internationally including New York, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and Tokyo, and presents his research in international paleontological meetings.

Tips of the Trade': The Best Practices of Writing Explained
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

(Held in Fleming 170) The web has created a whole brave new world of opinions--everybody has one, and everybody seems to want it published! When the question turns to how to write well, it's impossible not to stumble on lists with titles such as "The 10 Keys to Writing Powerful Sentences" or "5 Things You Must Do When You Write a Term Paper" or "The 7 Deadly Sins of Writing Paragraphs." This workshop will be a kind of brainstorming about these lists. Our method: after we take a look at a few, we will generate our own list. After our hour, you should have a solid formulation about not only what works but why. Presented by Dr. Peter Kratzke, Writing and Rhetoric

Event Image Control of Power Inverters in Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Integration
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

BIG ENERGY SERIES
Dr. Qing-Chang Zhong

Renewable energy sources have been regarded as the most promising means to solve the energy and environmental issues we face today. How to integrate renewable energy into smart grids presents many challenging problems in control and power electronics. A well-integrated smart grid provides the backbone for the high-level functions of smart grids, such as wide-area control, communication, information, marketing and security.

In this talk, an overview of the enabling technologies in control and power electronics to facilitate the integration of renewable energy into smart grids developed by the speaker and his team over the last 10 years will be presented.

These include different strategies to improve the power quality in smart (or micro) grids, grid-friendly connection of renewable energy using inverters that mimic synchronous generators (synchronverters), the provision of a neutral line for inverters, parallel operation of inverters to share the load in proportional to their capacity (robust droop controllers), inverters with capacitive output impedances (C-inverters), active capacitors implemented with inverters, harmonic droop controllers, sinusoid-locked loops (not just to lock the phase but also the frequency and amplitude), and an all-in-one control strategy to deal with the power quality issues (including negative-sequence currents, reactive power and harmonics) in the traction power systems of high-speed trains.

It will be shown that the integration of profound expertise in control and power electronics often leads to artful solutions to these problems.

Event Image Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Alex Bag
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In Alex Bag's ironic performance videos, the artist adopts a series of personae to create droll conceptual parodies. With her signature deadpan delivery and deliberately low-tech style, Bag mixes the vernacular of pop culture with irreverently humorous monologues. Performing in multiple guises amidst fragments of pop detritus, Bag skewers the tropes of consumer and media culture. Questioning how we define ourselves in relation to television, fashion, advertising and the art world, she creates mediated parodies that teeter between celebration and critique. She received her BFA from Cooper Union.

Her first solo New York museum presentation opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art in January 2009. Bag became known for her video performances, in which she humorously critiqued TV culture and the clichés of the contemporary art world. An extraordinarily flexible actress, Bag often appeared herself, taking on a multitude of roles. In the video that gained her initial recognition, "Untitled Fall 95" (1995), she played an art student who, as though in a video diary, depicted her desires and hopes as an artist and in her everyday schooling. In other videos she has frequently investigated the advertising structures of network TV (as in "Coven Services," 2004), or the most diverse TV genres and formats ("Fancy Pantz," 1997, "Gladia Daters," 2005).
