Brown Bag- Angela Oliverio- scientist-as-citizen engagement hour
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Angela Oliverio

Scientist as citizens engagement hour

This week for Brown Bag, Angela Oliverio will be leading a scientist-as-citizen engagement hour. We will be contacting our representatives about the issues which are important to us. There is no particular agenda to this meeting, and people of different political persuasions will be welcome. So come hang out, chat, have snacks, and write a letter or draft a phone call about any issue (science-related or otherwise) that matters to you. We will provide contact information, postcards, addresses, stamps, and make sure that they are all sent off afterwards.

The lunch-hour brown bag series offers an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, research assistants and faculty in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to present current research, stories of recent travels to conduct scientific work or other science-related topics. This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.

Event Image Music, Citizen Engagement and Water Resource Management
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Human life depends on the availability and quality of water to sustain our health, grow our food, power our homes with electricity, and stimulate our economies. However, due to overpopulation, increased demand for food, climate change and pollution, as much as two thirds of the world’s citizens may face water stressed conditions severely impacting the living and economic conditions of communities, countries, and regions by 2025. Without water, we cannot survive. How can we, as individuals, become more involved in the management of this precious and limited resource? During this panel, participants will explore ways in which music has been instrumentalized as a citizen engagement strategy to overcome political stakeholder barriers, create a common understanding between competing interests, and build constituencies for action both between and within nations where water has become an impediment to peace and socio economic development.

A special auxillary event of CU Artist Series' presentation of The Nile Project.

Panelists: Mina Girgis, Tyler Van Kirk, JoAnn Silverstein, Beth Osnes

INFO/HCC Seminar: Instability as a Resource for Design
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

The world is a messy place. This talk will describe a program that I am developing called "unstable design" that embraces the messiness of the world as a tactic to explore new relationships between people and technology. Specifically, it explores relationships where the human user may not be in control, which can be a really good thing in particular contexts.  I'll describe past “unstable" projects in domains of wearable technology and digital fabrication as well as some tentative future directions that I intend to explore at CU.

Date: Wednesday, February 1, 2017
Time: 3:00-4:15 PM
Location: DLC 170

Laura Devendorf is an assistant professor of information science and ATLAS Institute Fellow at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She directs the Unstable Design Lab, which explores how technological systems can embrace nonlinear, messy, and otherwise uncertain terrains of everyday life to provoke critical reflection and curiosity. She has bachelor’s degrees in computer science and art from UC Santa Barbara and received her PhD from the School of Information at UC Berkeley. Her research on unstable approaches to digital fabrication and wearable technology have received multiple best paper awards at top HCI conference venues as well as press coverage on Gizmodo and National Public Radio.

META: The Info/HCC series builds on the previously scheduled HCC seminar series in Computer Science, and we look forward to seeing faculty and students from CS, Information Science, ATLAS, CMCI, and other interested parts of campus. A seminar will be scheduled most weeks (alternating between ENVD and DLC), and will include internal and external talks and activities to help support our community.

Event Image Surprising Solar Flares: Studying the Sun as a Star
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Solar flares, as well as their often eruptive companions called coronal mass ejections (CMEs), have been studied for decades. While most of these studies involve imaging the Sun, observations of the Sun as a star (full-disk irradiance) have also revealed interesting results through exploring the spectral variability during flare events. LASP associate director and solar scientist, Tom Woods, will discuss these Sun-as-a-star flare measurements, which have been made over the past two solar cycles with LASP-built instruments aboard the NASA UARS, TIMED, SORCE, SDO, and MinXSS satellites. Some of the new results from such studies include understanding the flare variability over all wavelengths from the energetic X-rays to the visible, discovering and classifying different flare phases, using coronal dimming measurements to predict CME properties of mass and velocity, and better understanding coronal heating processes.
