Professional and Unprofessional Conduct in the University Context

Suzanne Soled, Director of Faculty Relations, Office of Faculty Affairs

What are the professional responsibilities, ethical principles, and conduct expected of graduate student instructors and faculty in an academic setting? What are examples of expected and unacceptable conduct when you teach, engage in scholarly and creative work, and in university citizenship? Knowing the answers to these questions is essential information for any faculty member or aspiring faculty member. Learn the most common violations of unprofessional conduct, how to avoid them, and what can be done about them when they do occur.

Just Futures
10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

see program here: http://www.colorado.edu/gsll/sites/default/files/attached-files/just_futures_program_1.pdf

This year’s Conversations in the Mountains brings German studies scholars in conversation with scholars doing related work informed by critical race studies and gender studies. Articulations of more just, progressive, even revolutionary futures long relied on narratives of progress that have been deeply challenged within German studies, queer studies, feminist studies, and ethnic studies. Just Futures examines what possibilities are articulated in literature, film, art and activism for transformations of the present for more just futures in the face of re-imaginings of the human, of the relationships that criss-cross the globe, and of complex temporalities.

APPM Department Colloquium - Eric Vance
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Eric Vance, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder

Toward a Theory of Collaboration for Data Science

The emerging field of Data Science is, by construction, an interdisciplinary, collaborative field. Statisticians, Mathematicians, and Computer Scientists work together (ideally) to create theoretically sound methods for domain experts and data scientists to apply to solve real problems. To be effective,
applied data scientists must collaborate with the domain experts who “own” the data and the problems to be solved. Is there a theory describing what components contribute to effective collaboration or how an individual data scientist can become a more effective interdisciplinary collaborator?
Where is the theory that describes how to train data scientists at scale to become effective collaborators? In this talk I will highlight past, present, and future steps to create a theory of collaboration for Data Science.

Special Colloquium "Strategies for searches of physics beyond the Standard Model in the XXI century"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Manuel Franco Sevilla, University of California, Santa Barbara
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: At the end of the XIX century, Lord Kelvin summarized a widespread feeling among physicists by saying that "physics is essentially complete, save for two little clouds". The "clouds" he was (apocryphally) referring to were the puzzling results from two measurements, the Michelson-Morley experiment and the Black-body spectrum, whose explanations ushered in an unprecedented era of discoveries that stretched throughout most of the XX century. After the culmination of the Standard Model in the 70's, the field of particle physics has found itself in a similar situation. Today, the "clouds" guiding the searches for physics beyond the Standard Model are issues like dark matter or the hierarchy problem. Using SUSY searches at CMS and the measurement of B->D(*)TauNu decays at BaBar as models, I will give an overview of some of the main strategies that are being followed in the quest to find new physics in the XXI century.

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This talk provides an overview of the ways in which the interdisciplinary fields of disability studies in the humanities and what has come to be called "crip theory" are transforming higher education. The talk will suggest that this curricular transformation functions at multiple levels, generating new forms of knowledge and making higher education more accessible to diverse learners in the broadest sense of the term "accessibility." The talk will also stress, however, that higher education and access for disabled people are currently in a moment of crisis both in the U.S. and more globally, and will consider some of the ways that activists, artists, and educators are responding to that crisis.

Physics Colloquium, "The Difficult Search for CP Violation in Neutrinos"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Michael Wilking, Stony Brook University

Abstract: To observe CP violation, experiments must make precise, differential measurements of the appearance of electron neutrinos and anti-electron neutrinos. This requires unprecedented control of systematic uncertainties, and, in particular, an understanding of neutrino-nucleus interactions that is beyond the capabilities of existing theoretical models. The resulting "neutrino energy measurement problem" that will be confronted by current and future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments, as well as potential experimental solutions, will be discussed.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Event Image Doctoral Student Recital: Keith Barnhart, classical guitar
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

"Theorbo and Friends"
Throughout the Classical era and into modern times, the guitar and other plucked stringed instruments have mostly been used in solo performance or in pop music. However, in earlier times these instruments held a very respectable place in musical society. Perhaps because of the flexibility of basso continuo and the portability of these instruments themselves, many chamber works of the Baroque and Renaissance eras include lutes, theorbos, guitars and other lesser-known plucked instruments.


PROGRAM: Tarquinio Merula: Ciaccona, Op. 12 No. 20; Antonio Vivaldi: Cello Sonata in A minor, RV 43; J.S. Bach: Flute Sonata in E minor, BWV 1034; Francesco Corbetta: Sinfonia a 2; John Johnson: Lute Duets; Dario Castello: Sonata Prima; Antonio Vivaldi: Trio Sonata in D minor, RV 63

Event Image Universal Design for Learning with iOS Devices; Luis Perez, Apple Distinguished Educator
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

This session will discuss the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) philosophy in relation to the capabilities of iOS devices. In particular, the iPad is a powerful example of a device that incorporates the key tenets of the UDL philosophy, with a variety of built-in accessibility features available to users out of the box as standard options. While many of these features (such as text to speech and speech recognition) were originally designed for people with disabilities, today they can help all learners enjoy equitable access to information, communication and expression. Along with the many apps that can be installed, these accessibility features make the iPad a powerful tool for customizing the learning experience to meet the variable needs of a diverse student population. Other factors such as the portability of the device and its social acceptability have also made the iPad a popular choice for meeting the needs of diverse learners. However, to get the most out of the iPad and its many supported apps, we as educators must move beyond its use as an enhancement of traditional practices and instead explore the unique affordances that make it an ideal tool for redefining and transforming the learning environment. You will leave this session with a toolkit for access and inclusion that will assist you in providing a more flexible learning environment where every one of your learners can succeed.

Event Image Identifying and Addressing Microaggressions with Professors Jim Walker and Valentina Iturbe-LaGrave
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

This interactive session offers a research-informed, hands-on approach to enacting inclusive pedagogy in post-secondary learning environments. By recognizing the intercentricity of race and racism as they relate to university structures, practices, and discourses that inadvertently lead to hostile learning environments, Dr. LaGrave and Dr. Walker collaborate in an interdisciplinary approach to thinking and working through difference. The session draws from recent actual CU classroom scenarios to offer models for responding to latent/blatant racism, homophobia, sexism, gender norming/shaming, white denial/fragility, and more.

Guided by findings from recent research and classroom observations, participants will gain hands-on experience identifying and responding to a variety of comments and incidents involving implicit-bias, prejudice, or stereotyping. Through small-group interaction, attendees will develop and practice strategies for turning such "flashpoint" moments into encounters which can foster safe, inclusive, and collegial learning environments.

Cluster synchronization and symmetries in networks of coupled dynamical systems

Synchronization is an important and prevalent phenomenon in natural and engineered systems. In addition to the widely-studied case of global synchronization, many networks also exhibit cluster synchronization: a state where there are two or more synchronized subsets of nodes which are not synchronized to each other. Over the past few years, several works have demonstrated the utility of computational group theory for predicting patterns of cluster synchronization in networks based on the topology of the network, and analyzing the stability of these patterns against perturbations. Since dynamical states which are unstable do not persist in the presence of noise, this stability analysis can be used to determine under what conditions a particular cluster synchronization pattern is physically realizable. In networks with Laplacian coupling, where the coupling between nodes is balanced to insure that global synchronization is possible, there are more possible patterns that may be observed, but these can be predicted and analyzed within the same framework. Recent work has also demonstrated that these techniques can be used to predict the existence of chimera states in small, globally-coupled networks. These theoretical results are supported by experiments with chaotic optoelectronic feedback loops.

Learning to be a Good Teammate: Algorithms for Efficient Human-Robot Collaboration

ABSTRACT: Robots capable of fluent collaboration with humans will bring transformative changes to the way we live and work. In domains ranging from healthcare to education to manufacturing, particularly under conditions where modern automation is ineffective or inapplicable, human-robot teaming can be leveraged to increase efficiency, capability and safety. Despite this, the deployment of collaborative robots into human-dominated environments remains largely infeasible due to the myriad challenges involved in creating helpful, safe, autonomous teammates.

In this talk, Hayes will present his recent work in overcoming these challenges, toward realizing flexible, communicative robot collaborators that both learn and dynamically assist in the completion of complex tasks through the application of novel learning and control algorithms. In particular, he will cover approaches to hierarchical task modeling, task and motion planning, and cooperative inverse reinforcement learning within the theme of human-robot teaming, focusing on the interpretable learning, synthesis and execution of supportive behaviors. He will conclude with insights gained from real-world deployments of such systems and a perspective on future directions for human-robot teaming research.

BIO: Bradley Hayes is a postdoctoral associate in the Interactive Robotics Group within the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Hayes's research interests center around developing the algorithms necessary for building supportive, interactive and intuitive robotic systems that are capable of performing complex collaborative tasks in environments shared with humans. His work combines theoretical advances and practical applications of machine learning, task and motion planning, human teaming psychology, and human-robot interaction. Brad received his PhD in Computer Science from Yale University in 2015, advised by Brian Scassellati. His work has been featured on TedXCambridge, Phys.org, CBC News, Wired, the BBC, Popular Science, MIT Technology Review and the Boston Museum of Science.

Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Talk: Professor John Fabian Witt (Yale University)
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Professor John Fabian Witt (Yale University) “The Radical Roots of Brown v. Board: A Blueprint for Modern Constitutional Change” The Supreme Court’s 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education is at the center of contemporary American constitutional law. And yet for at least a decade critics have charged that Brown adopted a thin, formal, and legalistic conception of civil rights inadequate to the task before it. By going to the roots of the efforts that eventually produced the decision, we can glimpse Brown’s radical beginnings – and make sense of why every constitutional transformation that has followed has sought to replicate its basic blueprint. Author of Lincoln’s Code: The Laws of War in American History (2013 Bancroft Prize), John Fabian Witt is Allen H. Duffy Class of 1960 Professor of Law at Yale Law School and a professor in Yale’s history department, where he teaches the history of American law, the laws of war, and the law of torts. Other writings include Patriots and Cosmopolitans and the prize-winning The Accidental Republic. He recently published a book on the law of torts, Torts: Cases, Principles, and Institutions, and is currently editing a book on constitutional orders in emergencies, as well as writing a history of the Garland Fund: the 1920s philanthropic foundation whose work financed the efforts that culminated in Brown v. Board of Education. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Society of American Historians, and the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship. This talk is sponsored by the CU Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa as part of the 2016-17 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program.

Understanding and Practicing Effective Peer Review

Elissa S. Guralnick, Professor Emerita, College of Music

Nearly every academic discipline is based on peer review of original research, and yet few are ever taught how to write or respond to such reviews. Narrowly defined, a peer review is an expert’s assessment of a manuscript submitted to a scholarly journal or a press for publication. You can start to learn now how to give a meaningful peer review. Equally important, you can learn now how to respond effectively and efficiently to such reviews, helping you to become not only a better reader of other people’s scholarship, but also a better scholar and writer yourself.

Advanced Polymeric Architectures for Biomedical and Sensing Applications

Victoria A. Piunova

Technical Project Leader, IBM Almaden Research Center

Friday, Feb 24th

9:30 -10:30 am

ME department conference rooms

 

The first part of this presentation will discuss the design and synthesis of gel-core star polymers as drug delivery vehicles and antimicrobial agents. Well-defined, multi-armed star polymers have been prepared by an “arm first” synthetic approach. Strategies to introduce core and/or peripheral functionality into the gel-core star polymers have been taken to tailor the properties of the carriers. A combination of molecular simulations and experimental results provides insight into the mechanism of star polymer formation.

The second part of this presentation will focus on the synthesis and self-assembly of dendronized block-copolymers to responsive photonic crystals for sensing applications. 

 

Dr. Victoria Piunova is a research staff member at IBM Almaden Research Center. She earned her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Southern California conducted post-doctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Piunova’s current research interests are focused on the development of materials for biomedical applications and sensing.

Title: Streamlining Clinical Science with Structured Data Archives: Data-Driven Insights from the Stroke Rehabilitation Literature.
 
Abstract: Significant recent advances in bibliometrics have focused on how to utilize text mining approaches to organize a scientific discipline based on author networks, keywords and/or references cited. While these approaches can provide very useful insights, they fail to capture important experimental data that are embedded within many scientific disciplines. A major objective of my work is to examine how experimental data can be used to organize the literature within a discipline and identify its key gaps. This approach is especially important to disciplines that rely heavily on randomized control trials (RCTs), as many of these studies have similar information architecture with common data elements (CDEs) acquired at similar times. Using stroke rehabilitation as an informative example, I will present a massively systematic review of the literature: the Centralized Open-Access Rehabilitation database for Stroke (SCOAR).  Using SCOAR as an example, I will show how primary research can be supplemented by meta-scientific research, informatics, and interactive data-visualization. These tools highlight sources of systematic variability in the outcomes of medical interventions and, in turn, provide insights to practitioners and identify opportunities for future research. I hope to make this talk exciting for a broad audience as the meta-scientific approach is fruitful for anyone pursuing experimental work, and medical informatics draws on numerous ICS disciplines from information science (for ontology), to neuroscience (for the subject matter), to computer science (for our interactive visualizations).

All colloquia take place on Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Room D428 and D430 on the fourth floor of the Muenzinger Psychology Building.

De Motu Animalium:  Modern Models for Animal Trajectories 
 
Advances in animal telemetry data collection techniques have served as a catalyst for the creation of statistical methodology for analyzing animal movement data.  Such data and methodology have provided a wealth of information about animal space use and the investigation of individual-based animal-environment relationships.  While the technology for data collection is improving dramatically over time, we are left with massive archives of historical animal telemetry data of varying quality.  However, many contemporary statistical approaches for inferring movement behavior are designed for newer data that are very accurate and high-resolution.  From a scientific perspective, the behaviors we are interested in learning about may be complicated, nonstationary, and constrained.  Furthermore, telemetry data often contain substantial measurement error and can be nonelliptically distributed.  I provide a brief overview of the history of statistical models for animal movement and present an accessible framework for accommodating the inherent characteristics of Lagrangian movement processes and uncertainty associated with telemetry data.

4:00 PM - 5:45 PM

"The Score is Alive...With the Sound of Music", the 109th Distinguished Research Lecturer David Korevaar

The Distinguished Research Lectureship is among the highest honors bestowed by the faculty on a faculty member at CU Boulder. Each year, the Research & Innovation Office requests nominations from faculty for this award, and a faculty review panel recommends one faculty member as a recipient. 2016 honorees are David Korevaar (Music) and Thomas T. Veblen (Geography).

David Korevaar began his piano studies at age six in San Diego with Sherman Storr, and at age 13 he became a student of the great American virtuoso Earl Wild. By age 20 he had earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Juilliard School, where he continued his studies with Earl Wild and studied composition with David Diamond. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Juilliard School with Abbey Simon. Another important mentor and teacher was the French pianist Paul Doguereau, who had been a student of Egon Petri, and who had studied the music of Fauré and Debussy with Roger-Ducasse (a pupil of Fauré’s), and the music of Ravel with the composer.

CompSci Colloquium: David Crandall (IU Bloomington)
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Egocentric Computer Vision, for Fun and Science

ABSTRACT: New sources of large-scale visual data raise both opportunities and challenges for computer vision. For example, each of the nearly trillion photos on Facebook is an observation of what the world looked like at a particular point in time and space, and what a particular photographer was paying attention to. Meanwhile, low-cost wearable cameras (like GoPro) are entering the mainstream, allowing people to record and share their lives from a first-person, "egocentric" perspective. How can vision help people organize these (and other) vast but noisy datasets? What could mining these rich datasets reveal about ourselves and about the world in general? 

In this talk, Crandall will describe recent work investigating these questions, focusing on two lines of work on egocentric imagery as examples. The first is for consumer applications, where the goal is to develop automated classifiers to help categorize lifelogging images across several dimensions. The second is an interdisciplinary project using computer vision with wearable cameras to study parent-child interactions in order to better understand child learning. Despite the different goals, these applications share common themes of robustly recognizing image content in noisy, highly dynamic, unstructured imagery.

BIO: David Crandall is an associate professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington, where he is a member of the programs in Computer Science, Informatics, Cognitive Science, and Data Science, and of the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research. He received the PhD in computer science from Cornell University in 2008 and the MS and BS degrees in computer science and engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 2001. He was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell from 2008-2010, and a senior research scientist with Eastman Kodak Company from 2001-2003. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2013 and a Google Faculty Research Award in 2014.

Special Physics Colloquium, "Top quarks & beyond at the Large Hadron Collider"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Louise Skinnari, CERN
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: The first run of the Large Hadron Collider has been a great success, most notably with the discovery of the Higgs boson. Despite the continued triumph of the Standard Model, important questions about how nature works on small scales remain unanswered. Top quarks, the most massive of all known elementary particles, play a central role in many of the extensions to the Standard Model that have been proposed to address these questions. A precise understanding of top quarks and their production and properties is therefore critical. In this talk, I will discuss the motivation and status of top quark physics at the LHC, presenting recent results from the CMS experiment. I will additionally give an outlook to the future upgrade of the LHC.

Silicon Flatirons: Crash Course - Building Great Boards
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

For startups, emerging growth companies and established firms, the challenge of building a great board is often overlooked or underappreciated. For startup companies, the first question is whether and when to establish an operating board (or an advisory board, for that matter). For those companies with established boards, the question is how to use them effectively, avoiding any dysfunctional or counterproductive behavior that can sometimes take hold. In this crash course, we will discuss how a great board is an important opportunity for a company to elicit honest feedback, hold the leadership accountable to key goals and engage valuable resources in the company’s mission. It will also evaluate the potential pitfalls of boards, including how to manage investors on a board who have interests that may diverge from the company’s or the founder’s vision; how boards can best manage, mentor and hire/fire CEOs; what to look for in recruiting board members and how to use them most effectively.

Physics Colloquium, "Searching for Supersymmetry at the LHC"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Keith Ulmer, Texas A&M

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN currently provides the highest energy particle collisions ever produced in a laboratory. These collisions were reconstructed and analyzed by the CMS and ATLAS experiments to claim the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012, thus completing the standard model of particle physics. This talk explores what's next for the LHC, including the implications of the Higgs discovery on the search for new physics beyond the standard model. In particular, such open questions as the nature of dark matter and the gauge hierarchy problem may find eloquent solutions in supersymmetry, a proposed new symmetry of nature relating fermions and bosons. I will discuss the current state of experimental searches for supersymmetry at CMS, including the near term prospects for discovery, and will conclude with an example of the innovative new technological solutions being explored to continue the hunt for new physics into the High Luminosity LHC era set to begin in the coming decade.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Bistability and Hopf Bifurcation in a Refined Model of the Acute Stage of HIV Infection

Recent clinical studies have shown that HIV disease pathogenesis can depend strongly on 
many factors at the time of transmission, including the strength of the initial viral load and
the local availability of CD4+ T-cells. To facilitate these new advances, we will describe a
refined in-host model of HIV infection that incorporates the homeostatic proliferation of
T-cells. Due to the effects of this biological process, the influence of initial conditions on
the proliferation of HIV infection and the dynamics of the model is further elucidated. In
particular, our study of the new model extends previous theoretical and computational
work on the acute stage of the disease and leads to interesting nonlinear dynamics,
including a parameter region featuring bistability of infectious and viral clearance
equilibria and the appearance of a Hopf bifurcation within biologically relevant parameter
regimes, which may be linked to the appearance of so-called "viral blips”

CompSci Colloquium: Yan Shoshitaishvili (UC Santa Barbara)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Making the World Safer Through Cyber-Autonomy

ABSTRACT: Our world is driven by interconnected software. While this connectivity provides functionality and convenience, it is not without risks: vulnerabilities are still rampant in modern software, and the exploitation of these vulnerabilities turns our connectivity into a liability. With the recent proliferation of "smart" devices, more vulnerable software than ever is connected to the internet, and open to attackers.

We must find and fix these vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. In this talk, Shoshitaishvili will describe his research into an analysis pipeline that is flexible and extensible enough to target the identification of different types of vulnerabilities in binary code. He will discuss angr, the analysis framework powering this pipeline, and detail how angr can be applied not only to vulnerability identification in binary code, but to vulnerability remediation as well. Finally, he will show the culmination of these techniques in the form of the Mechanical Phish, one of the world's first fully autonomous hacking systems. Last year, the Mechanical Phish won third place in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge by autonomously finding, exploiting, and patching vulnerabilities in a live competition, at a scale that could not be achieved by human hackers.

Shoshitaishvili has open-sourced the Mechanical Phish and the angr framework that powers it. The growing community around the project, including research labs and companies around the world, are actively pushing forward the frontier of binary analysis. With ever-improving vulnerability detection and remediation techniques, we hope to introduce automated binary analysis techniques into the standard arsenal of the "good guys," making our world more secure in the process.
BIO: Yan Shoshitaishvili is a PhD candidate at UC Santa Barbara, with a primary research focus of program analysis and vulnerability identification. He is currently the captain of the Shellphish computer hacking group, and guides them through cybersecurity competitions worldwide. Over the last two years, Shoshitaishvili led Shellphish's participation in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge, applying his research to the creation of a fully autonomous hacking system that won third place in the competition. Underpinning this system is angr, an open-source binary analysis project founded by Yan in the course of his research.
