Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

    Sponsored by: 
            Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS) and Research Computing 

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Tentative agenda:

CU and the Community: How do we engage more completely?
12:00 PM - 1:45 PM

How can CU Boulder engage more completely with communities? 

This is the subject of upcoming sessions offered through 
Academic Futures: Rethinking the university – the futures of learning and discovery, a campus conversation that is focused on listening to the interests and concerns of faculty, staff and students to make sure that CU Boulder's central mission—teaching and learning, discovery and creation—shapes the campus' collective efforts.

Emily CoBabe-Ammann, director of strategic projects for the Research and Innovation Office and facilitator of Academic Futures campus conversations, will moderate this session titled CU and the Community: How do we engage more completely? Faculty, staff and students are invited to this and the last session on Thursday, Nov. 2 from 12 to 2:00 p.m. at the Clark Conference Room, Engineering Administration (ECAD 150).

These sessions will build on the work of the campus’ civic action planning group, composed of deans and representatives from the CU Boulder Faculty Assembly, the Office for Outreach and Engagement, and CU Engage. For the past year, the group has focused on fully understanding the scope of campuswide civic work and identifying strategies to highlight and broaden its impact.

Started in September, these conversations seek to identify and to prioritize key themes and to put forth specific projects and action items as the campus considers its strategic imperatives: shaping tomorrow’s leaders, positively impacting humanity and being the top university for innovation. Topics have included comprehensive campus-level approaches to distance learning, interdisciplinary education, the role of arts and humanities, inclusive excellence and more.

Physics Colloquium Presented by Jennifer Ross (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Title: “Transient Crosslinkers Tune the Patterns of Microtubule Filaments”

Presented by: Jennifer Ross, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 

Abstract: The cell is a complex autonomous machine taking in information, performing computations, and responding to the environment. To enable agile read/write capabilities, much of the molecular biochemistry that performs these computations must be transient and weak, allowing signals to be carried as a function of the concentration of numerous and coupled interactions. Traditionally, biochemical experiments can only measure strongly interacting systems that can last for long times in dilute concentrations. We have developed microscopy measurements to enable to visualization of weak, transient interactions and the resulting emergent behaviors of coupled systems. I will present excerpts from stories where many weak, transient interactions can have strong repercussions on the overall activity and can, in fact, overpower strongly interacting systems. These studies involve the microtubule cytoskeleton and the transport motor, kinesin-1. Our results reveal a fundamentally important aspect of cellular self-organization: weak, transient interacting species can tune their interaction strength directly by tuning the local concentration to act like a rheostat. The tunability of weak, transient interactions is a fundamental activity of biological systems, and our insights will ultimately enable us to learn how to engineer these systems to create biological or biomimetic devices.
Biography: Ross is the director of the new Massachusetts Center for Autonomous Materials (MassCAM) and an award-winning biophysicist studying the organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton and microtubule-based enzymes using high-resolution single molecule imaging techniques. She has a degree in Physics and has studied the microtubule cytoskeleton for over a decade. As a Cottrell Scholar, Ross has pioneered innovative teaching techniques that are being adopted around the world. Specifically, she has taught at several international short courses on microscopy including Analytical and Quantitative Microscopy (AQLM) at the Marine Biology Laboratory and the Bangalore Microscopy Course at the National Centre for Biological Science in Bangalore, India. She has also served as the President of NESM in the past. She is also an advocate for women and under-represented groups and has a blog to help others make it in academics.

Event Image Ann Axtell Morris — Breaking New Ground
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Writer, artist, and archaeologist Ann Axtell Morris inspired young people to study archaeology through the publication of two popular field autobiographies, Digging in Yucatan and Digging in the Southwest. Her books recounted the excitement of discovery and the meticulous care employed by those seeking meaning from ancient artifacts and architecture. Although overshadowed by her more-famous husband, Earl Morris, and early 20th century academics who tended to devalue the contributions of women, this lecture re-examines the significant contributions made by this pioneer archaeologist.

About the Speaker: Inga Calvin, Ph.D., teaches archaeology-focused classes as part of the Residential Academic Program in the Sewall and Baker dorms.  She is a specialist in Classic Period Maya hieroglyphics and pottery. Dr. Calvin co-curated the exhibit Unearthing the Maya: Excavations of Ann and Earl Morris at Chichen Itzá, Mexico, at the University of Colorado Museum-Boulder. Most recently, she is consulting for a forthcoming film about the life of Ann Morris.
Event Image LASP Public Lecture: Monitoring Earth’s Energy Balance from Space
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

LASP has a long history of measuring the Sun’s radiant energy from high-altitude balloons, sounding rockets, and from satellite platforms in order to understand its influences on Earth’s environment. In the very near term, LASP will measure the Sun’s energy output from a new frontier – the International Space Station – with the launch of the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor (TSIS) at the end of November 2017. LASP’s expertise in precision measurements of the Sun has also enabled technological advances for measuring reflected solar radiation, that portion of the Sun’s energy that escapes back to space after interactions with Earth’s atmosphere and surface elements. By using the Sun as a direct calibration source, the Reflected Solar (RS) spectrometer currently being built by LASP engineers for NASA’s CLARREO Pathfinder mission will reduce the uncertainties in measured solar reflectance by approximately an order of magnitude compared to current sensors. The high-accuracy RS measurements will be used to improve the quality of other NASA sensors and for the attribution, testing, and validation of climate change predictions. Come learn how LASP is contributing to space measurements of Earth’s energy balance with the TSIS and CLARREO Pathfinder missions. Along the way, see fun videos of the TSIS platform during testing as it is prepared for launch.

CU and the Community: How do we engage more completely?
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

How can CU Boulder engage more completely with communities? 

This is the subject of an upcoming session offered through 
Academic Futures: Rethinking the university – the futures of learning and discovery, a campus conversation that is focused on listening to the interests and concerns of faculty, staff and students to make sure that CU Boulder's central mission—teaching and learning, discovery and creation—shapes the campus' collective efforts.

A physical model for efficient ranking in networks
 
In systems of many individual entities, interactions and their outcomes are often defined by hierarchies or rankings. While in most cases these rankings are hidden from us, their presence is nevertheless revealed in the asymmetric patterns of interactions that we observe. For example, social groups of birds, primates, and elephants are organized according to dominance hierarchies in which more powerful animals assert themselves over those less powerful. Social positions are not directly visible to researchers, but we can infer each animal’s position in social space by observing a sufficient number of interactions. Similar latent hierarchies exist in systems of endorsement in which status is due to prestige or reputation. For example, in academia, universities are more likely to hire faculty candidates from equally or more prestigious universities. 
 
The goal of this work is to infer such latent hierarchies directly from data, and I will present a principled model and algorithm to infer a hierarchical ranking of nodes in a directed network. Unlike other methods such as minimum violation ranking, our method, which we are calling SpringRank, assigns real-valued scores to nodes rather than simply ordinal ranks, and it formalizes the assumption that interactions are more likely to occur between individuals with similar ranks. It provides a natural framework for a statistical significance test for distinguishing when the inferred hierarchy is due to the network topology or is instead due to random chance, and it can be used to perform inference tasks such as predicting the existence or direction of edges. The ranking is inferred by solving a linear system of equations, which is sparse if the network is; thus the resulting algorithm is extremely efficient and scalable. We illustrate these findings by analyzing real and synthetic data and show that our method outperforms others, in both speed and accuracy, in recovering the underlying ranks and predicting edge directions. This work is a collaboration with Caterina De Bacco and Cris Moore.

New Directions in Mobile Systems Research: Drone Detection and Discovering Mobile Group Context

ABSTRACT: In this talk, I will explore two new directions in mobile systems research, namely drone detection and understanding mobile group context.  Drones are increasingly flying in airspace where they pose a danger to others, such as near airports, jails, forest fires, buildings, events, etc.  We present a new approach for low cost detection of the presence of drones by leveraging passive RF signals.  This work recently received an ACM SIGMOBILE Research Highlights Award.  Another project seeks to understand how context influences the behavior of mobile groups of users.  We have built a mobile app called OutWithFriendz and present insights learned from studying how mobile users organize group events.  I will also provide a summary of the overall research efforts of my group.

BIO: Richard Han is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder.  He received has Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with Distinction from Stanford University in 1989.  He received his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 1997.  His research interests include mobile and cloud systems, wireless sensor networks, ubiquitous computing, cybersafety, and cyberphysical systems.  He has served on the Technical Program Committees of the ACM MobiSys and SenSys conferences, as well as been the General Co-Chair of ACM MobiSys.  He is a winner of an NSF CAREER Award, an ACM SIGMOBILE Research Highlights Award, and an IBM Faculty Award, and has served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.  He has published ~100 refereed research papers in journals, conferences and workshops, and his research has received ~9800 citations.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Between Earth and Space: 
Data assimilation for a high-dimensional Earth and geospace system

The Earth’s upper atmosphere is a critical juncture between the Earth and space. Both space and terrestrial weathers impact its conditions, which in turn affect a number of modern technologies and infrastructures, including satellite, aircraft and spacecraft operations as well as telecommunications and navigation. Data assimilation and inverse methods play a key role in integrating remote-sensing and in-situ Earth and geospace observations into Earth and geospace systems models.  The problem presents considerable methodological and computational challenges because of the high-dimensionality and non-linearity of the underling dynamics of the Earth and geospace systems and the large volumes of heterogeneous observations from various ground-based and space-based observing platforms. To make the problem tractable, most data assimilation methods resort to scalable methods derived from well-established Gaussian process-based formulations of the sequential Bayesian estimation problem. A key component of a Gaussian process model is the covariance function. One widely used approach is ensemble data assimilation, wherein covariance is effectively expressed in the subspace spanned by the dynamically evolving model ensemble. The pros and cons of such approaches, along with a non-Gaussian inferential framework that overcomes the current methodological limitations will be discussed in the context of applications to the Earth’s upper atmosphere.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. With its suite of science instruments, Juno investigates the existence of a solid planetary core, maps Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measures the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere. JUNO is also the first spacecraft to fly over Jupiter’s aurora and measures both the energetic particles raining down on the planet and the bright “northern & southern lights” they excite. NASA’s JUNO mission was launched in August 2011 and put into orbit over Jupiter’s poles on 4th July 2016. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Faciliated by Jillian Heydt-Stevenson, Professor of English. In this seminar, we will cover the basic elements necessary on a clear, concise syllabus.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Computational Math Seminar - Mimetic Methods Movie Madness
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Mimetic Methods Movie Madness: A three act play. 
The classical three act play starts with an exposition followed by a complication and recaches a resolution in the final act. As an introduction to structure preserving or Mimetic numerical methods will follow the three act play structure and watch three lectures from the BIRS workshop: Connections in Geometric Numerical Integration and Structure-Preserving Discretization that took place in Banff this summer. 
Part 1. Exposition. November 7  
Finite Element Exterior Calculus, Douglas Arnold, University of Minnesota.
In the first video Professor Arnold gives a survey of the FEEC framework. A very long review paper of FEEC can be found at:
To set the stage I will show a very simple finite difference example that highlights the need for the FEEC framework. 
Part 2. Complication. November 14  
The Keller-Box Scheme: A Mimetic Method that is a Bit Different. Blair Perot, UMass Amherst. 
Prof. Perot, discusses the Keller-Box Scheme, a classic method that does preserve many physical properties but does not exactly fit in to the traditional mimetic framework, suggesting a possibility for a slightly wider definition of what mimetic should mean.  
Part 3. Resolution. November 28
High order mimetic discretizations, Arthur Palha, TU Delft.  
This video presents, in my opinion, a very interesting approach to derive mimetic spectral elements. Do you know what histopolation is? You will after watching this. 
Epilogue. December 5. 
We will meet to review the techniques that we have seen and discuss where they can be useful and if they can be improved or adapted to other problems / discretization techniques.

The monologues of SALSA Lotería explore the complex intersection of race, class, gender, citizenship, and documentation status in the lives of Boulder County Latina immigrants and their families. The piece concludes with an invitation for the public to share Rosa’s fresh salsa as performers informally socialize with and answer the audience’s questions.
Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Zachary Kilpatrick

Interface methods for interacting bumps in a neural field model
Neural field models are nonlinear integrodifferential equations describing the dynamics of neuronal activity in large-scale networks of the brain. We analyze a neural field model describing the neural underpinnings of a multiple item working memory task, where subjects hold multiple items (e.g., locations or colors) in memory simultaneously during a delay period lasting a few seconds. Subjects aim to recall each item’s location in feature space with maximal precision. Each remembered item corresponds to a stationary pulse (bump) instantiated in the neural field, and interactions between the bumps (merging, repulsion, and annihilation) produce errors in item recall. Interface equations, that project the evolution of bumps to the dynamics of their edges, accurately track bumps’ behavior in response to both interactions and stochastic forcing that models noise in the network. We detail the derivation of these interface equations from the full model, and discuss how item recall precision depends on model parameters such as network connectivity and item number. This is joint work with APPM undergraduate Nikhil Krishnan, funded through the EXTREEMS program.

A Charlottesville in Historical Perspective Forum: Monuments & Memorialization in American History

At the center of the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia was a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee, a monument that the city had decided to remove from a public park and that subsequently served as a focal point for the “Unite the Right” rally that occurred there in August. Using this controversy as our launching point, this forum will address the complex politics of public monuments and memorialization, using examples from both the American South, where monuments to the Confederacy sit at the center of current controversy, and Colorado and the West, where memorials have raised similar questions about how we remember our region’s complicated racial history.

Panelists will share brief opening statements and then we will open the floor to questions and discussion. 

Featuring: Patricia Nelson Limerick, Peter Wood, and Phoebe Young, with Paul Sutter moderating.

Event Image CMCI Student Government Presents: John Crestani
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

CMCI Student Government and CU Program Council are teaming up to present internet entrepreneur John Crestani.

Biography
Born in 1987, John Crestani has accomplished a lot in his twenty-nine years. Cretstani had his first taste of financial & mobility independence in 2006; as he and his first car sped off to college. Fast forward to 2009 and Crestani, 21, traveled to Thailand to figure out his direction in life and “find” himself. During this time he read a number of spiritual works, such as The Alchemist, that would later influence his life.

But his saving grace turned out to be a business book: The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, the now-classic manual for breaking free of the nine-to-five desk job by building an online business. John Crestani was sitting on a beach in Thailand, poor and lost in his life when he opened a book that helped transform him to becoming a motivated and successful internet entrepreneur. 

After a number of years of trial-and-error of building his internet business, Crestani finally managed to create a multi-million-dollar business, met his wife, and travel the world. In 2016, he had his first child while growing the company. He went from deep in debt, to having an extra-ordinary successful business, that supports his life and style.

As of late he’s gone on to build an empire in the education. And now he’s taken it upon himself to teach aspiring entrepreneurs how they too can transition to the new entrepreneurial economy, and be the boss of themselves. Currently Crestani is preparing for the release of his new platform; a dramatic new business model focused on helping others gain control of their time. 

Crestani hopes to share his unparalleled insight and experience and wants others to become part of a community of people who share similar aspirations. “Now is the time to start living life on your own terms,” exclaims Crestani, adding “I hope to help people in every way I can.”

6:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Climate change is influencing rural livelihoods across
the globe – and scientists anticipate increasing and
substantial risk to both social and natural systems
through the course of this century. Shifts in temperature
and rainfall are especially impactful for impoverished
households in low-income settings and those heavily
dependent on local natural resources or agriculture.
In the face of environmental strain, migration has
long been used as an adaptive strategy and Professor
Hunter will review recent evidence of the migration-
environment connection. She will also review findings
from several of her recent collaborative studies on the
migration-environment connection within rural Mexico.

Belle Turnbull and the Legacy of Colorado Poetry:

A Symposium

 

 Colorado poets, writers, and historians will discuss the relevance of Belle Turnbull’s work today and how it can help us to understand the making of the contemporary American West.

 FEATURING: Art Goodtimes, Patty Limerick, Uche Ogbuji, Susan Spear, David J. Rothman, & Jeffrey R. Villines

 “This book restores to Westerners a treasure we were foolish to misplace. In poems that are as consoling as they are unsettling, Belle Turnbull extracted and refined the meanings of mountains, miners, memory, and mortality. Now, nearly fifty years after her death, a team of gifted writers—serving as Turnbull’s latter-day friends in high places—joins together to rescue her work from our inattention, and return us to her company.“

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Addressing Challenging Situations in the Classroom
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Facilitated by Anna Spain Bradley, Associate Professor of Law and Assistant Vice Provost of Faculty Development and Diversity. This workshop will explore common challenges that faculty and students face in the classroom context. The workshop aims to raise examples and explore best practices. For example, a student questions your authority as a professor in front of the class. What should you do? A student faces personal challenges that are affecting his or her performance in class. How might you best assist and when are you required to consult other campus resources? How can you best teach material that deals with aspects of individual identity such as race, gender or sexual orientation and related concerns about bias and discrimination? This workshop will engage these and other common challenges and provide participants with a framework for understanding what is taking place and how you can best respond given your identity and the identity of those involved. The workshop is interactive. Please register to attend this event by emailing: ftep@colorado.edu.

Words matter: When intent doesn't equal impact
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

We all have implicit biases, whether we realize it or not, and sometimes we express those biases without being aware of the impact that we may have on others. In this event, we will recognize and examine how our language and actions can have the unintended result of making environments harmful and exclusive. Participants will discuss these situations and think about how to disrupt or respond to them. By examining the ways that others may be affected by what we say and do, even when we mean no harm, we can build empathy and work towards a more inclusive environment.

Fundamental studies in stratified convection at low and high Mach number
Convection is a ubiquitous energy transport mechanism in stellar and planetary atmospheres where flows are compressible and feel the atmospheric stratification. I present results from simulations of fully compressible convection in stratified domains completed using the open-source Dedalus pseudospectral framework. Using modern timestepping techniques, we are able to study convection at both high and low Mach numbers.  We find that scalar measurements of the convection scale with input parameters in a similar manner to how they scale in the Rayleigh-Benard problem of incompressible convection. These measurements include the Nusselt number, which quantifies heat transport, and Reynolds number, which quantifies turbulence.  First results from future work are discussed, including methods to accelerate the slow thermal evolution of these numerical experiments.

CompSci Colloquium: Vivek Srijumar (U. of Utah)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Expanding the Horizons of NLP: Opportunities and Challenges

ABSTRACT: Natural language processing (NLP) has the potential to be employed in a broad array of user-facing applications. To realize this potential, however, we need to address several challenges related to representations, data availability and scalability.

In this talk, I will discuss these concerns and how we may overcome them. First, as a motivating example of the broad reach of NLP, I will present our recent work on using language technology used to improve mental health treatment. Then, using the task of reading comprehension, I will show how the choice of representation can make a big difference in our ability to reason about text. Finally, using applications from semantics as examples, I will present a general strategy for training classifiers for linguistic structure using partially annotated examples spread across multiple datasets.

BIO: Vivek Srikumar is an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. His research lies in the areas of natural learning processing and machine learning and has primarily been driven by questions arising from the need to learn structured representations of text using little or indirect supervision and to scale inference to large problems. His work has been published in various AI, NLP and machine learning venues and recently received the best paper award at EMNLP. Previously, he obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013 and was a post-doctoral scholar at Stanford University.
Lecture: Visceral Attachments: Secessionism, Populism, and the Excess of Democracy
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This talk takes the emotional climate surrounding pro-independence referenda in Scotland (2014) and Catalonia (2014, 2017) as a point of departure in order to analyze their connection with the (re)appearance of populist movements in Spain and elsewhere. It argues that those perceived “excessive moments” are not failures of democracy, but rather the manifestation of the irresolvable paradoxes at the heart of it.

The lecture will be in English and is free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

About the speaker: Elena Delgado is a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Her research focuses on the cultural construction of Spanish national identity in the democratic period, with particular emphasis on the role of emotions in the public sphere. Her latest monograph, La nación singular. Las fantasías de la normalidad democrática española (1996-2011) (Siglo XXI Editores, 2014), was widely acclaimed and was a finalist for the 2015 National (Spanish) Literary Award (Essay).

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Most people alive today have spent their entire existence within the Space Age. The more we learn about outer space, the more we understand how our inner space was shaped by it.  As such, some ethnologists have proposed that a new mythology is the expected result of that understanding. Which world view should we embrace?  Belief in Mythology, or Understanding of Science? What are some salient features of the cosmos that help us understand our inner space? The transformation of our culture by technology, coupled with new insights of our planetary neighbors and beyond, provide a test of our ability to construct new mythologies to explain it all to the human mind.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Earth Sciences at Ball Aerospace – Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going by Dr. Shelley Petroy, Ball Aerospace, Earth Science Mission Development Since the 1950’s, Ball Aerospace has engineered some of the world’s pioneering earth and space science missions. When climatologists need more accurate data and weather forecasters want to predict days in advance, we’re their go-to partner. Flying on our spacecraft, instruments like TEMPO, GMI and CALIPSO gather extremely accurate data on pollution, precipitation and the impacts of clouds and aerosols on Earth’s climate. Today, coupled with breakthrough technologies, shrinking spacecraft size, increased access to space, and the growing commercial data market, Ball is moving into “new space” with a suite of small sensors, spacecraft and enabling technologies that maintain mission performance, but take advantage of these new market drivers to reduce costs and lower risk. Come find out where we’ve been and where we’re going in earth sciences Lecture from 9 to 10 a.m. in the CIRES Auditorium, followed by informal discussion in the ESOC Reading Room from 10 to 11 a.m.

Some Insights into Computing with Positive Definite Kernels

I will discuss joint work with Mike McCourt (SigOpt, San Francisco) that has led to progress on the numerically stable computation of certain quantities of interest when working with positive definite kernels to solve scattered data interpolation (or kriging) problems. In particular, I will draw upon insights from both numerical analysis and modeling with Gaussian processes which will allow us to connect quantities such as, e.g., (deterministic) error estimates in terms of the so-called power function with the kriging variance. This provides new kernel parametrization criteria as well as new ways to compute known criteria such as MLE. Some numerical examples will illustrate the effectiveness of this approach.

Event Image Sustainability Skills Workshop: Advanced Carbon Emissions-Forecasting Emissions Reduction
3:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This hands-on skills building workshop focuses on the second part of Greenhouse Gas Accounting. Once we have a baseline, we need to plan and forecast initiatives to reduce emissions while also taking into account possible growth in emissions over time. You will gain experience in calculating carbon reductions from various initiatives and forecasting emissions growth from organizational growth. Pre-requisite is Intro to Carbon Emissions Inventory, either the Spring 2017 offering or the workshop above. Students who complete BOTH of the Greenhouse Gas Accounting workshops (including the Introductory workshop offered in Spring 2017) will receive a Certificate in Greenhouse Gas Accounting from the CU Environmental Center.

EBIO Colloquium: Dr. Jason Corwin: Complex Genetics Drive the Chemical Ecology of Plant-Microbe Int
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

EBIO Colloquium
Dr. Jason Corwin
University of Colorado at Boulder

 "Beyond Gene-for-Gene: Complex Genetics Drive the Chemical Ecology of Plant-Microbe Interactions."

"Most of what we know about the co-evolution of plant-microbe interactions comes from plant pathology where epidemic cycles are a function of a Red Queen’s arms race of individual genomic loci within both the host and pathogen. However, most plant-microbe interactions, even many of the most virulent pathogens, do not necessarily adhere to these single gene-for-gene interactions and are largely a function of complex signaling mediated through specialized metabolites.  For this talk, I will discuss how natural variation in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana shapes the complex genetics driving plant specialized metabolism as well as the mutualistic and antagonistic interactions with microbes within their environment."

Event Image The Outer Reaches of Inner Space
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Most people alive today have spent their entire existence within the Space Age. The more we learn about outer space, the more we understand how our inner space was shaped by it.  As such, some ethnologists have proposed that a new mythology is the expected result of that understanding. Which world view should we embrace?  Belief in Mythology, or Understanding of Science? What are some salient features of the cosmos that help us understand our inner space? The transformation of our culture by technology, coupled with new insights of our planetary neighbors and beyond, provide a test of our ability to construct new mythologies to explain it all to the human mind.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

Introduction to Design Principles for Data Visualization
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We are excited to announce this unique opportunity to attend a workshop given by the visiting scholar Isabel Meirelles! The use of visualizations has risen exponentially, fuelled in part by the need to extract meaning from huge amounts of data and to make sense of them without the aid of external cognitive devices. Through a series of short lectures paired with hands-on exercises, the workshop will introduce the design principles behind effectively communicating information through visualizations. No prior knowledge is necessary. Registration: http://colorado.libcal.com/event/3677420 Isabel Meirelles is a designer and educator whose intellectual curiosity lies in the relationships between visual thinking and visual representation. She is a Professor in the Faculty of Design at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada. Her research focuses on the theoretical and experimental examination of the fundamentals underlying how information is structured, represented, and communicated in different media. Meirelles is the author of “Design for Information: An introduction to the histories, theories, and best practices behind effective information visualizations” (Rockport Publishers, 2013).

Seeing Data: The Proliferation of Visualizations
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

We are excited to announce this unique talk presented by the visiting scholar Isabel Meirelles! Our current obsession with collecting, quantifying and analyzing all types of data is not new. Most disciplines in the sciences and the humanities saw the systematization of knowledge as well as a preoccupation with measuring all types of phenomena starting in the second half of the 18th century. What I believe is new is the widespread use of images and visual-spatial techniques. In this talk, I will examine the antecedents and significance of visual representations of information in both academia and industry. I will discuss recent visualization trends, their roles, affordances and limitations in helping us explore, communicate and interpret information. Isabel Meirelles is a designer and educator whose intellectual curiosity lies in the relationships between visual thinking and visual representation. She is a Professor in the Faculty of Design at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada. Her research focuses on the theoretical and experimental examination of the fundamentals underlying how information is structured, represented, and communicated in different media. Meirelles is the author of “Design for Information: An introduction to the histories, theories, and best practices behind effective information visualizations” (Rockport Publishers, 2013).

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

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

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

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

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

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Computational Math Seminar - Mimetic Methods Movie Madness

Mimetic Methods Movie Madness: A three act play. 
The classical three act play starts with an exposition followed by a complication and recaches a resolution in the final act. As an introduction to structure preserving or Mimetic numerical methods will follow the three act play structure and watch three lectures from the BIRS workshop: Connections in Geometric Numerical Integration and Structure-Preserving Discretization that took place in Banff this summer. 
Part 1. Exposition. November 7  
Finite Element Exterior Calculus, Douglas Arnold, University of Minnesota.
In the first video Professor Arnold gives a survey of the FEEC framework. A very long review paper of FEEC can be found at:
To set the stage I will show a very simple finite difference example that highlights the need for the FEEC framework. 
Part 2. Complication. November 14  
The Keller-Box Scheme: A Mimetic Method that is a Bit Different. Blair Perot, UMass Amherst. 
Prof. Perot, discusses the Keller-Box Scheme, a classic method that does preserve many physical properties but does not exactly fit in to the traditional mimetic framework, suggesting a possibility for a slightly wider definition of what mimetic should mean.  
Part 3. Resolution. November 28
High order mimetic discretizations, Arthur Palha, TU Delft.  
This video presents, in my opinion, a very interesting approach to derive mimetic spectral elements. Do you know what histopolation is? You will after watching this. 
Epilogue. December 5. 
We will meet to review the techniques that we have seen and discuss where they can be useful and if they can be improved or adapted to other problems / discretization techniques.

Well-posedness results for wave equations with null forms with random data

The null condition was introduced by Klainerman. The nonlinearities exhibiting null structure appear in many systems of wave equations including Wave Maps, Yang Mills, Maxwell-Klein-Gordon and the space-time Monopole equation. Two dimensions create obstacles towards low regularity well-posedness that are not present in higher dimensions. In this talk we describe recent progress on improving the well-posedness results in 2D by suitably randomizing the initial data.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Join the University of Colorado Law School on Tuesday, November 14 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. for the 43rd Annual Austin W. Scott, Jr. Lecture. This year's lecture features Professor Jennifer S. Hendricks, whose talk is called "Essentially a Mother". When employer-provided health insurance covers contraception, is that sex equality, special benefits for women, or something else? What about workplace accommodations for breastfeeding? Historically, U.S. courts would have called these sorts of benefits "special rights", not required -- and perhaps even suspect -- under the Equal Protection Clause and other legal guarantors of equality. In recent years, however, public debates, and even court decisions have shifted toward treating "women's unique biology" as something that must be accommodated in order to attain sex equality. Is this progress, or does it stereotype women as mothers and hinder their advancement? In her talk, Professor Hendricks will discuss these questions and more, and provide insight on how the law and feminist legal theory have struggled to reconcile biological sex differences with principles of equality. The lecture is in the Wittemyer Courtroom at the Wolf Law building, with a reception to follow for registered guests. Please visit http://lawweb.colorado.edu/events/details.jsp?id=7593 for more information and to register. Please register by Tuesday, November 7.

International Film Series: Time to Die
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Video intro by Alex Cox. A man returns to the dusty village of his youth after an 18-year absence. A couple is fleetingly reunited after decades apart. A pair of hot-headed brothers seeks to avenge a murder they neither witnessed nor fully comprehend. There is a gun battle. In many ways, “Tiempo de Morir” (“A Time to Die”), the 1966 debut drama by Mexican filmmaker Arturo Ripstein, a protegé of Luis Buñuel, fits squarely within the category of western — in which life-and-death issues of honor and justice play out amid lawlessness and parched landscapes. But the film may be most notable for the writer behind its screenplay, a former journalist from Colombia by the name of Gabriel García Márquez. The film touches on many of the themes that would materialize in García Márquez’s fiction — tradition, propriety, fate. It is a story of vengeance that is also at its essence about the dynamics of family. And there is the setting that feels as if it’s at a remove from reality. But above all, there is the sense that individuals can’t escape destiny. In “Tiempo de Morir,” the lead character’s impending death is ultimately what gives the film its tension. The viewer knows it is coming — it’s announced right at the beginning. “Film is extremely concrete,” [Rodrigo] García says. “Even now with the great resource of visual effects, you still need a great deal of mastery not just of technique but storytelling. To try to get poetry out of that will always be hard.” Still, cinema would remain García Márquez’s passion, even if it was one he observed at a distance. As he told the Paris Review in 1981: “My relation with it is like that of a couple who can’t live separated, but who can’t live together either.”

Event Image Conference: Improving Resilience in Cybersecurity and Spectrum
1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Society increasingly depends on computer networks and wireless systems. Yet, outages and adverse incidents are regular occurrences.  It has become essential for this technology to maintain an acceptable level of service—in other words, to be resilient. Different fields have different approaches to becoming resilient. For example, medicine and electric grid management learn from many decades of practice and mistakes to improve the safety and robustness of service delivery. Their overarching goal is to drive greater awareness and learn from experience, not to cast blame or scapegoat individuals for mistakes.

In the fields of cybersecurity and spectrum, by contrast, there are no institutional strategies for capturing information around outages, attacks and interference, which in turn would enable learning around why such harms arise and drive better practices to avoid them in the future. This conference will explore institutional strategies in health care and electricity to improve the resilience of computing and radio systems. We will bring together a range of professionals, academics and policymakers to consider how such institutional strategies could be developed and implemented in areas of cybersecurity and spectrum.
