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

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

Dr. Qing-Chang Zhong will be discussing the control of power inverters in renewable energy and smart grid integration.

Renewable energy sources have been regarded as the most promising means to solve the energy and environmental issues we face nowadays. 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.

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).

Event Image AIA Lecture Series. Pompeii: A Typical Roman Town
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted violently, burying towns, killing thousands and permanently altering the landscape of the surrounding area. In 1748, after lying buried and forgotten for almost 1700 years, the town of Pompeii would be rediscovered, uncovered and ultimately commercialized. According to Shelly Martin " Pompeii was destined to become one of the most visited archaeological sites in the world." Martin will take visitors on a tour of Pompeii, exploring the locations and features of the town that made up a typical day in the ancient Roman world.

Presenter: Archaeologist, Fire Fighter and Back Country Ranger Shelly Martin

This is a free event that will be held in the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Paleontology Hall.

Event Image ITARC-2013, International Trade & Academic Research Conference


The dynamics of international trade have taken on an added significance in the light of the challenges created by the recent global financial crisis. Entire sectors and even nations have begun to reassess their trading relationships and the more enlightened are eager to gain an insight into the theories and processes that have helped certain economies to weather the storm. The emerging giants of Brazil, China and India are demanding greater attention and ensuring that practitioners and academics alike invest more time and resources in understanding where their economies are at and how they will shape future of international trade. Since the Doha Development Round (Doha Development Agenda - DDA) began in late 2001 the issue of international trade has gained greater prominence. This academic conference is intended to contribute to the emerging theoretical understanding and empirical base and to further advance the understanding and practice of business especially international trade & management. We welcome empirical and theoretical papers which advance our knowledge of these important areas. This conference will be the platform for dissemination of knowledge, provide a learned reference in the field and facilitate communication between academic, research experts, business leaders and practitioners. The following list is indicative of the types of contributions which may be appropriate. However, it is not intended to be exhaustive and rather is illustrative.

Dissertation Title: Tools, Methods and Visualizations to Elucidate Spatial and Temporal Patterns in Microbial Community Studies with Billions of Sequences

Abstract:
Improvements in sequencing technologies have shifted the foundations in biology, ecology and health. Traditionally, these sciences have dealt with small amounts of data that could be analyzed using simple methods and computational tools. Today, they are confronted with massive numbers of sequences within thousands of samples. These sequences represent the DNA from microorganisms that inhabit diverse environments, from soils, oceans to the human body. Additionally, the recent studies are now moving from simple snapshots to spatial and temporal datasets to studying the distribution of these microbial guests. These larger studies reveal the lack of computational methods and resources researchers have to circumvent to understand the intrinsic patterns of their new sequence based studies.

In this dissertation, I present new computational tools, methods, and visualizations that allow microbiologists to make sense of these massive studies, and the interesting results concerning human health that can be obtained from microbial ecology studies. Also, I present a cloud computing method for combining  these  larger  studies,  which  has  already  produced  potentially  important health insights into the temporal development of infants. Finally, I describe a new software tool, which allows microbial ecology researchers to design and statistically power future studies based on previously published studies. These novel components not only demonstrate the future of microbial computational biology, but also show the kind of medical and ecological advances we can observe by combining computational tools with new sequencing technologies.

JSR 335: Lambda Expressions for the 
Java Programming Language

Bruce K. Haddon
President, Paladin Software

ECCR 265
Thursday, November 8
3:30-4:30 PM

The proposal (Java Specification Request #335) for lambda expressions (a.k.a. “closures”) in Java has reached its second review, and is showing sign of stability. This talk examines the current state of the proposal, and the effects on the Java language and JDK (Java 8).

The addition of lambda expressions to Java promises both an addition to the expressive power of the language, and also to be the largest change to the Java language and its environment (the libraries of the JDK) since the inception of the language. The effects are at least as far-reaching as the addition of generics to the Java language in Java 5. It will change how Java programs are written and designed, and what they will look like in a far more significant way. The Lambda expressions JSR is also bringing multiple inheritance (sort of) to Java!

These changes will also create new compilation problems, affect how Java as a language is taught, and its use as a language in which to display and convey algorithms and other programming practices.

Dr. Bruce K. Haddon (graduated CU-Boulder 1979) is currently a senior engineer in software quality assurance, and also functions as a “language lawyer” for the Java programming language. He has previously been the Director of the University Computing Centre at the University of Sydney, and a faculty member of both CS and ECEE at CU-Boulder. In particular, he has also been long associated with the software engineering aspects of portable software, programming language design and implementation, as well as software internationalization and localization. These interests converged as a consulting Java Architect, in which role he has advised world-wide banks, telecommunications companies, the US Air Force, and others. This talk deals the further incorporation of fundamental concepts in programming language design into an implementation for the next version of the Java programming language.

Prehistoric Mimbres Culture: Archeaological Research at Woodrow Ruin- IPCAS Presentation
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Woodrow Ruin, located just north of Cliff, NM on the Gila River, is one of the most unique sites in the Mimbres region. Not only is Woodrow Ruin a large, multi-component site that has numerous pithouses, 2 great kivas, and many room blocks, but it may also contain a ballcourt (similar to those found in the Hohokam Region), which would be the furthest east one has ever been found. While this makes Woodrow Ruin a very interesting site, what is most important about the site is its state of preservation. Unlike most other Mimbres sites, Woodrow Ruin has been spared from extensive looting. Surprisingly, no archaeological research has been conducted at Woodrow. This summer, Jakob carried out initial dissertation research at Woodrow ruin. This included high-contour GPS mapping and an analysis of surface ceramics. Once analyzed, the data he collected will provide valuable information on the occupation history of the site, and guide future excavations at the site.

During the summer of 2012 Jakob Sedig directed the first professional archaeological excavations at Woodrow Ruin as part of his dissertation research. Excavations at the site helped to confirm that Woodrow Ruin, located on the Upper Gila of southwest New Mexico, is not a typical Mimbres site. Although only a very small portion of the site was excavated, numerous exciting discoveries were made, including evidence for the long-disputed “Mangas” phase of Mimbres archaeology. In this talk Jakob will discuss the excavations conducted during the summer of 2012, and the preliminary results from analysis of the site’s artifacts.

Kenneth Strzepek Emeritus Seminar: Civil Infrastructure and Economic Development (Multi-Day Event)
4:00 PM

Special Seminar in Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering
Friday, November 9th at 4:00pm in Benson 180
Reception to follow upstairs in Benson Conference Room

Civil Infrastructure and Economic Development:
Engineering for Developing Communities, Cities and Countries
Kenneth Strzepek
Research Scientist - MIT Joint Program for the Science and Policy of Global Change
Senior Research Associate - UNU – World Institute for Development Economics Research
Professor Emeritus - University of Colorado

UN –Habitat states that “the adequate supply of infrastructure services has long been viewed as
essential for economic development …a consensus has emerged that, under the right conditions,
infrastructure development can play a major role in promoting growth and equity – and, through
both channels, help to reduce poverty.

A recent report for The Intergovernmental Group of Twenty-Four on International Monetary
Affairs and Development (G-24) makes the following points:
• Many emerging markets and all low-income countries require a major step increase in
infrastructure investment to alleviate growth constraints, respond to urbanization
pressures and meet their crucial development, inclusion and environmental goals.
• In aggregate the incremental investment spending across emerging markets and
developing countries is estimated at around $1 trillion a year more than what is
currently spent. Electricity, water (upstream and downstream) and transport are
expected to account for the bulk of the spending needs.
• Infrastructure projects will have a large impact on determining environmental
sustainability. Between 10 and 15% of the required infrastructure investment
could be attributed to making such investment sustainable, by ensuring loweremissions,
higher efficiency and resilience to climate change.

This talk will discuss the role of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering in
developing energy efficient, environmentally sustainable and climate resilient infrastructure
systems that are appropriate for different scales of societal and economic development:
communities, cities, and countries.

Event Image Fall 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the MFA Fall 2012 Thesis Exhibition, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus.

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

-Kim Dickey, Ceramics Professor, University of Colorado Boulder 

The exhibition features: Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis

Event Image Peanut-butter N' Luvin'
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

A community service project for CU-Boulder & Naropa University students. Every Saturday at 10:45 a.m. Meets at CU's Wesley Chapel. We prepare sandwiches, raisins, carrots, etc. and then walk down to the Boulder Creek to serve many of our community's "visible" homeless persons. While this is sponsored by Wesley Fellowship (a progressive Christian campus ministry), and while many of the people who p articipate in this may be motivated by their faith, this is not a "churchy" thing. It's open to people of all, or no, faith/religious backgrounds. It's for people who care and want to roll up their sleeves to make a difference. No preaching. No converting. Just peanut-butter N' lovin'. Learn more about the event on our Facebook page >> click here.

Event Image Fall 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the MFA Fall 2012 Thesis Exhibition, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus.

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

Event Image Fall 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the MFA Fall 2012 Thesis Exhibition, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus.

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

-Kim Dickey, Ceramics Professor, University of Colorado Boulder 

The exhibition features: Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis 
Event Image Liminality, Luminosity, and the Everyday: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Painting Collection

Applegate, and Peter Plagens and selections from the CU Art Museum’s collection of European Renaissance and Baroque paintings.

Ranging from landscapes to minimalist fields to depictions of social space, the exhibition explores liminality and luminosity through multiple lenses.  

This exhibition is generously supported in part by the HBB Foundation and the CU Art Museum Benefactors and Members as well as the Arts and Culture Enrichment (ACE) student fees.

Event Image Encountering the Unfamiliar Through Dance: Tribal Fusion Dance as a Global Phenomenon
11:00 AM - 12:35 PM

The Internet has grown to become supra-national in its influence, eluding government regulation and attempts to control the norms of usage.  The digital commons is a self-regulating, transnational community where dancers seek fellowship for their international inspirations.  Identified as the Tribal Fusion community, participants formulate a fast-moving global exchange of music and dance that possesses a distinctly pluralistic approach to art-making.  As early pioneers of a new visual and movement culture, dancers are collaboratively defining their signature values and questioning how Internet usage impacts identity and cultural memory.  These issues will be examined with surprising and often amusing insights about our digital connectivity and emerging global citizenship through a dance performance and lecture. Presenter: Donna Mejia

Event Image Implicit Attitudes 101
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

This workshop provides an introduction to implicit attitudes, a research based framework that focuses on automatic attitudes that are outside a person's awareness. This framework provides a way of thinking about issues around diversity that bypasses shame and blame and moves directly to understanding the value and pitfalls associated with the kinds of generalizations that all humans make. We will look at basic concepts and findings from research related to implicit attitudes, and we will begin applying the framework to a variety of everyday situations. Participants will learn to understand and to work with the basics of implicit attitudes in both personal and work spheres. Come open to a challenging but painless framework for increasing your competence and comfort with diversity. Presenters: Glenda Russell and Andrea Iglesias.   (also offered Thursday, 12:30pm-1:45pm)

Event Image No Need to AMP it Up! I Still Can’t Hear You
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

This session is a snapshot of attitudes and thoughts toward deafness, sign language, and people who are Deaf. American Sign Language, founded in 1817, was not recognized as a language until 1965. In 1864 President Abraham Lincoln advocated for higher education for the Deaf; however in 1880 sign language was almost doomed after Alexander Graham Bell expressed his view that it should be eradicated. Audism (introduced in 1972) and deafhood (in 2003) are current buzzwords. Many may ask, “What have we changed?” This session helps Summit participants gain insight and understanding of issues surrounding deafness; it also aims to motivate the audience to explore personal beliefs and attitudes towards disability. Presenters: Glenda Nash-Buscarello and Karen Boyd
