T9Hacks (Multi-Day Event)
10:00 AM

Pack a laptop, a change of clothes and some creativity, and head over to CU Boulder ATLAS for T9Hacks, an invention marathon of sorts that’s absolutely free!  T9Hacks is a place to try out new ideas and collaborate in a fun environment, an all-night event where participants race to create the next great software project. Hacking will continue for 24 hours straight, and participants don’t need programming experience. And there’s free food, too!

T9Hacks is a women’s hackathon–the “T” stands for “Title IX.” Men can attend too, but in Sadie Hawkins fashion; they need to be invited by a woman (see website for details). The event is geared towards college students (and recent college grads) to see what hackathons are about, learn, explore, and create something new. 

Explore the possibilities. Get a start on a project you’ve had in the back of your mind. Create a solution to a problem you see often. Build something you never have before. And for those who have never written a line of code–this event is especially for you. Mentors will guide you through the process.

You don’t need to attend CU Boulder to attend T9Hacks. But, you do need to register.

Title: "Building livelihood resilience in semi-arid Kenya: what role does agroforestry play?"
SEEC S216
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.

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Multiscale Methods in Ocean Modeling

Equations describing the motions of the ocean are reasonably well known, but numerical ocean models are unable to resolve all length scales. Rather than view numerical ocean models as hopelessly inaccurate approximations to the aforementioned equations, one should view them as approximations to the dynamics of the resolvable scales. But equations describing the motions of the resolvable scales are not reasonably well known. The development of models for nonlinear multiscale complex dynamical systems is squarely within the scope of Applied Mathematics, and represents a challenge to that discipline. This talk will describe a range of approaches to the development of analytical and computational models, from rigorous to formal to semi-empirical, describing the resolvable scales of the ocean.
Event Image Guest Master Class: Maggie Snyder, viola

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

“The Rocky Horror Show” is an outrageous mashup of campy science fiction, Marvel-inspired characters, 1960s beach party jams and rock ’n’ roll music of every vintage. When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.

Note: CU-Boulder’s University Theatre will provide props for audience members. Please do not bring your own.
