Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Xudan Luo
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Xudan Luo, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

The inverse scattering transform for the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation with nonzero boundary conditions.

The nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation was introduced and shown to be integrable. In this talk, the inverse scattering transform for the nonlocal NLS equation with nonzero boundary conditions at infinity is presented. The direct and inverse scattering problems are analyzed. Specifically, the direct problem is shown to be well posed for certain potentials such that analyticity properties of eigenfunctions and scattering data are established. The inverse scattering problem is developed via a left-right Riemann-Hilbert problem in terms of a uniform variable. Finally, the Cauchy problem for nonlocal NLS equation with nonzero boundary conditions is formulated and the methods to find pure soliton solutions are discussed, which, in tun, leads to an explicit 1-soliton solution.
Event Image TIGER 1 Workshops: Project Based-Learning: What Is It? What Matters?
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Project Based-Learning: What Is It? What Matters?
Daria Kotys-Schwartz, Director, Idea Forge; Instructor, Mechanical Engineering

Research has shown that Project-Based Learning (PBL) has several benefits in STEM classrooms. Due to the broad variety of practices classified as PBL, results can be wide-ranging and confusion can easily occur when reviewing the literature. This workshop will introduce the difference between PBL and an “add-on project” in a course. We will discuss relevant PBL research, the critical components for supporting PBL, and the potential outcomes.

 

Event Image Playing the Long Game: Creating Shared Prosperity through Conscious Capitalism, A Conversation with
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

In order to create shared prosperity and an economy that works for everyone, employers must reject the false choice between treating their workers with dignity and turning a profit. Employers must recognize, as President Obama said in his final State of the Union address, "that doing right by their workers or their customers or their communities ends up being good for their shareholders."

In his talk, the US Labor Secretary Tom Perez will argue that the high road is the smart road, and that building great companies requires valuing employees. Afterwards, in a conversation with Secretary Perez and Colorado Law Dean Phil Weiser, two leaders of great Colorado companies committed to these values, will join in a facilitated conversation on the topic.

Hydrology & Water Resources Seminar
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This week's session will feature Prof. Hari Rajaram, who will be speaking on "Quantifying the Influence of Heterogeneity and Preferential Flow on the Scale and Time Dependence of Weathering Rates"

ABSTRACT: Numerous previous laboratory and field observations and inferences of weathering rates suggest significant scale dependence (laboratory rates » field rates) and time dependence (rates appear to decrease progressively with time of exposure). Preferential flow induced by heterogeneity, manifest as permeability variations, macropores, or discrete fractures, has been suggested as one class of extrinsic mechanisms responsible for the observed scale and time dependence. Additional intrinsic mechanisms proposed include the decrease in reactive surface area with weathering. In this research, we present a quantitative evaluation of the influence of heterogeneity and preferential flow on weathering rates using high-resolution reactive transport modeling. We employ PFLOTRAN, an open source subsurface flow and reactive transport code that utilizes parallelization over multiple processors and provides a robust framework for simulating the complex weathering patterns resulting from preferential flow. Simulations were performed in discrete fracture networks (DFNs) and correlated random permeability fields (CRPF). The behavior in these simulations was compared to that in homogeneous permeability fields. The simulations reproduce to some extent the scale and time dependence of weathering rates, although the modeled scale and time dependence are less pronounced than indicated by observations. The simulations in DFNs indicated a systematic time-dependence related to the formation of diffusion-controlled weathering fronts that propagate into matrix blocks. However, the decline of system-averaged weathering rates does not follow a 1/sqrt(time) dependence characteristic of diffusion, due to network scale effects and depletion of matrix blocks. The behavior in CRPF was akin to that in homogeneous permeability fields with enhanced dispersion, with a time-dependence that reflects the advective sweeping of the weathering front from the simulation domain. Our results suggest that structured preferential flow, as resulting from DFNs can readily explain an order-of-magnitude disparity between laboratory and field rates, and a similar decrease with time over 1 million years. However, to explain the nearly four orders of magnitude decrease indicated by observations, preferential flow and diffusion limitations must act in consort with other intrinsic mechanisms.

Dr. Nichole Barger

‘First Contact’ with Global Science: A Scientist’s Perspective on IPBES Engagement


A large number of global assessments will be undertaken by the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) over the next several years providing unique opportunities for global science policy engagement for early career scientists. This presentation describes my experience with IPBES engagement over the past year, potential barriers to participation by US experts, and strategies for overcoming barriers to participation in these critically important policy relevant global assessments.


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 CIRTL Reads 2015-2016
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

February 9, 2016: How People Learn

Discussion: This article describes an experiment in which students participated in a Human Metabolism Laboratory module in one of two ways: 1) a control group where students participated in a “cookbook”-style lab, following the instructor’s lead through a predetermined set of steps; or, 2) a treatment group in which students participated via the “How People Learn” framework, which encourages active participation through discussion and application of knowledge. We will discuss the results of the study, as well as the pedagogy underlying the “How People Learn” framework and the benefits of learner-centered approaches vs. more traditional styles of teaching laboratory modules.

March 8, 2016: Laboratory Pedagogies and Collaborative Learning

Discussion: In the spirit of this month’s CIRTLCast theme, “Creating Inclusive STEM Research Environments,” we’re looking at two short articles covering laboratory pedagogies and collaborative learning. The first article by Weaver et al (2008) discusses the state of laboratory pedagogy and the effects of inquiry- and research-based laboratory pedagogies in preparing undergraduates for future careers. Our second article by Nokes-Malach et al (2015) is an educational review of the instances where collaboration improves learning outcomes. Collaborative learning strategies between students are widely viewed as beneficial, but the interactions between students are complex, and what works for one student may not work for all. Join us for discussion as we unpack these ideas and apply them to creating inclusive environments!
 

April 12, 2016: Visuals in STEM Teaching and Learning
2PM ET/1PM CT/12PM MT/11AM PT

Discussion: For the last session of the 2015-2016 CIRTL Reads, we are looking at the results of a qualitative pilot study of how STEM scholars learned to represent their research with graphics and how they currently communicate their research with graphics. While graphics communicate and support critical research arguments, the current study shows that the ways researchers learned to graphically communicate does not necessarily translate to what they do. These types of mismatches can interfere with proper communication, particularly among nonspecialist or student audiences.


CIRTL Reads is a monthly online journal club co-hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder that expands Network participants’ understanding of STEM teaching and learning by discussing recent articles in pedagogy and current trends within STEM. Readings will be posted on the series' Moodle page, and participants are asked to submit discussion questions to the CIRTL Reads discussion leader, Dr. Adam Blanford (gtptiger AT colorado.edu), at least 24 hours before the scheduled session.

When are sessions, and how do you join them? Sessions are 3:00-4:00PM ET/2:00-3:00PM CT/1:00-2:00PM MT/12:00-1:00PM PT on the second Wednesday of every month from September through April. Ahead of each session, you'll need to go to Moodle to read the month's article; to access the 2015-2016 CIRTL Reads Moodle page, please submit a request formOn the day of a session, we'll update our event page with a link to the session's Blackboard Collaborate room. Simply find the session in the event calendar and click "Join this session." If you're new to Blackboard Collaborate, make sure you review our Blackboard instruction page to familiarize yourself with the software ahead of time. Please note that our events are discussion-based, so participants are strongly encouraged - but not required - to have microphones.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

The effects of Ekman pumping on rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection

Rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection is the canonical framework for investigating the fundamental dynamics of stars, planetary interiors, and terrestrial oceans.  To understand these turbulent and rapidly rotating systems, several techniques are used to study them: asymptotic methods, direct numerical simulations of the Boussinesq equations (DNS) and experiments.  While these methods show good quantitative agreement for stress free boundary conditions, the case of no-slip boundaries presents an interesting difference. Along the rigid boundaries, Ekman layers form which result in Ekman pumping. In this talk, I will present an asymptotically reduced PDE model for rotating, thermal convection that incorporates these Ekman layers and compare results from our simulations to those from DNS and experiments. The model is used to investigate the heat transport efficiency as well as the inverse cascade of energy in the geostrophic turbulence regime.

CompSci Today: Hamid Bagheri (UC Irvine)
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Practical, Lightweight Formal Analysis of Mobile Software

ABSTRACT: The ever-increasing expansion of software into nearly every aspect of modern life, from mobile banking to healthcare systems, is making its security and reliability more important than ever. Software analysis techniques hold out the promise of improved software quality. In this talk, Bagheri will present his ongoing research, which explores the possibility of leveraging lightweight formal methods that rely on recent advancements in constraint solving technologies for practical software analysis. First, in the context of Android – the most popular platform for mobile devices – he will present a novel approach for automated detection and mitigation of security vulnerabilities due to the interaction of multiple apps on an Android device. His study of thousands of real-world Android apps revealed hundreds of vulnerabilities, many of which were previously unknown. Second, in spite of their strengths, the lightweight formal methods’ reliance on computationally heavy constraint solvers means that they can take a significant amount of time to verify the properties of software. This complexity prevents their application for continuous assessment of a software system’s properties, such as security, at runtime. Bagheri will describe an all-new mechanism that achieves exceptionally efficient formal analysis in settings where the analysis is applied continuously on an evolving specification. His experimental results using evolving configurations of apps on an Android device show that the approach can provide an order of magnitude speedup over prior security analysis techniques, without sacrificing soundness and completeness of the analysis.

BIO: Hamid Bagheri is a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Information and Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine. He received his PhD in computer science from the University of Virginia in 2013. Hamid is broadly interested in software engineering, and particularly in advancing software security and reliability by developing new methods and tools relying on concepts from fields like formal methods, program analysis, model-driven development, and software architecture. He has been prolific in his early career, developing several novel techniques, including new methods and tools for compositional analysis of Android inter-app vulnerabilities, synthesis of application‐specific frameworks, and synthesis of tradeoff spaces for object-relational databases. The results of his research have been published in some of the most prestigious venues, such as ICSE, IEEE TSE, FM and MoDELS, among others. He has been a finalist at the ACM student research competition. His publications in FM and SEKE Conferences have been recognized as best papers. Hamid has served on the program committee of several major conferences, and reviewed for multiple journals.

How to Be a Self-starter in Your Field!
Amina Belkadi, GTP Lead, Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering

John Driscoll, author of “The Sales Warrior Within,” describes self-starting as a tough habit to start and a great habit to enjoy. As graduate students, we are expected to be selfstarters and leaders in our field of work. Becoming a self-starter mainly requires two things: reading and starting the day a little earlier than the others. This workshop provides certain steps to help you be a self-starter who initiates things rather than waiting for someone else to do it.

 

Event Image (Un)moved: The Paradoxes of Disaffection among Undocumented Queer Immigrants
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Featuring Martin F. Manalansan IV, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Asian American Studies, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, author of Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora. Focusing on a household of undocumented queer immigrants living in a cramped apartment in New York City, the presentation "feels" its way through their everyday narratives of pathos, exuberance and disaffection as they navigate precarious conditions and seemingly impossible plights. This is an ethnography of affect that works through and "feels out" a vernacular map of subaltern queer life as constituted by mess and impossibility while buttressed by a scaffolding of longings, aspirations and hope.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Women & Gender Studies, LGBTQ Studies Program, Center for Asian Studies, Department of English, Department of Anthropology, and Department of Ethnic Studies.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

An overview of fast and robust communication-avoiding algorithms

In this talk I will discuss one of the main challenges in high performance computing: the increased cost of communication with respect to computation, where communication refers to data transferred either between processors or between different levels of memory hierarchy, including possibly NVMs (non-volatile memories).  I will overview novel communication-avoiding numerical methods and algorithms that reduce the communication to a minimum for operations that are at the heart of many calculations, in particular numerical linear algebra algorithms.  Those algorithms range from iterative methods (as used in numerical simulations) to low-rank matrix approximations for data analytics (based on LU/QR factorizations with column tournament pivoting).  I will also discuss the algorithm/architecture matching of those algorithms

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

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

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

2016 Innovative Seed Grant Application Deadline
All Day

Innovative Seed Grant Program

The Offices of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Research are pleased to announce the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant competition (http://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program) to stimulate new and exciting areas of research and creative work on the CU Boulder campus. Funding up to $1M will be available to provide grants of up to $50,000 including $250K set aside to support work connected to the campus Grand Challenge (http://www.colorado.edu/grandchallenges/).

Announcing the new deadlines for the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant Competition

1)    Grant Submission Deadline: February 14, 2016 at 11:59 PM MST

2)    Grant Panel Reviews: March 2016

3)    Winner Notification: Early April 2016

 

Please see the VCR’s Innovative Seed Grant Program Page at: https://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program.

 

We are looking for research, scholarship, and creative projects that:

  • Involve new interdisciplinary initiatives that take investigators in creative, and sometimes high-risk, high-reward directions including team development proposals for future large team research projects
  • Have tangible payoffs in terms of future funding, scholarly or artistic impact, or development of new productive collaborations

 

The projects may take a variety of forms but must represent an investment in the future research, scholarly, or artistic vitality of the university and demonstrate promise for expansion of the project goals in the future. The projects can come from any discipline at the university, with those involving interdisciplinary work that will foster collaborative interaction among CU faculty particularly welcome. We would like to stress that proposals are judged in categories designed to allow faculty from all disciplines the opportunity to compete successfully, even if their discipline is not traditionally connected to sponsored research. We especially welcome proposals for work in emerging fields. 

This year, there is a new and unique opportunity for faculty who would like to become part of the campus Grand Challenge supporting Our Space. Our Future. and take the Challenge into new and exciting directions. Funding has been set aside for projects that branch out and strengthen the ongoing work and contribute to ensuring a global impact on our goals of improving our reputation, diversifying our revenue streams, and ensuring student success. These projects need to be distinctive from and synergistic with the Grand Challenge projects already underway. Applicants should clearly identify if their submitted proposal is in support of the Grand Challenge and how it will address and strengthen the goals of the university.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This talk will be presented by Mingsheng Xu, a current visiting scholar at CU.

It took a long time for Daoism to establish a systematic and consolidated pantheon, and this process lasted from the Han Dynasty to the Southern Song Dynasty as it is acknowledged. Although the Daoist pantheon is complicated, we can still trace the innovation of it through the Daoist scriptures at different historical periods. From this innovation, we can discover some characteristics of Daoism religion which constitute for the important basis of Chinese traditional beliefs.

Lunch will be provided for attendees.

CompSci Today: Tsourakakis (Harvard) & Guo (U. of Rochester)
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Speaker 1 - 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Charalampos Tsourakakis on "Mining Tools for Large-Scale Networks"

ABSTRACT: Finding large near-cliques in massive networks is a notoriously hard problem of great importance to many applications, including anomaly detection in security, community detection in social networks, and mining the Web graph. How can we exploit idiosyncrasies of real-world networks in order to solve this NP-hard problem efficiently? Can we find dense subgraphs in graph streams with a single pass over the stream? Can we design near real time algorithms  for time-evolving networks? In this talk, Tsourakakis will answer these questions in the affirmative. He will also present state-of-the-art exact and approximation algorithms for extraction of large near-cliques from large-scale networks, the k-clique densest subgraph problem, which run in a few seconds on a typical laptop.  He will present graph mining applications, including anomaly detection in citation networks, planning a successful cocktail party and engineering applications on Tera-scale networks. Tsourakakis  will conclude his talk with some interesting research directions.

BIO: Charalampos Tsourakakis is currently a CRCS Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University. He received his PhD from the Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO) program at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). He also holds a Master of Science from the Machine Learning Department at CMU. He did his undergraduate studies in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). He is the recipient of a best paper award in IEEE Data Mining, and has designed two graph mining libraries for tera-scale graphs. The former has been officially included in Windows Azure, while the latter was a research highlight of Microsoft Research. His main research interest lies in designing scalable and data-aware algorithms for massive networks that recover hidden structure and solve complex data-driven problems.
 

Speaker 2 - 4:30-5:30 p.m. 
Philip Guo on "Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale"

ABSTRACT: Computer programming is now a vital skill, but millions of people around the world struggle to learn it on their own without being able to get help from a human tutor. To address this significant access gap, Guo created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a pedagogical code visualization and social learning system. He then generalized Python Tutor's visualization engine into a language-independent platform called Rosetta, which now visualizes code written in seven popular languages: Python, Java, C, C++, Ruby, JavaScript and TypeScript.

So far, over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries have used Rosetta to visualize over 15 million pieces of code, making it by far the most widely-used system of its kind. This unique scale inspires new types of interactive systems for online learning, along with the ability to evaluate those systems on orders of magnitude more subjects than is possible in traditional lab studies.

This talk, Guo will describe the Rosetta visualization platform and two social learning systems built upon it: 1.) Codechella enables multiple people to simultaneously write code together, visually explore its run-time state using multiple cursors, and text chat to perform tutoring and collaborative learning. 2.) Codeopticon enables a single tutor to efficiently monitor dozens of learners as they are coding and then step in to offer proactive assistance. Taken together, these systems help people around the world learn programming even when they do not have access to scarce in-person tutoring resources.

BIO: Philip Guo is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Rochester. His research spans human-computer interaction, online learning, and data science. To enable learning programming at scale, he created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a code visualization and social learning platform that has been used by over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries to visualize over 15 million pieces of code. Philip received SB and MEng degrees in EECS from MIT in 2006 and a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford in 2012. His PhD dissertation was one of the first to create productivity tools for data scientists. Before becoming an assistant professor in Fall 2014, he built online learning tools at Google, edX, and MIT CSAIL. Learn more at www.pgbovine.net

Event Image Holland & Hart Tech Talk
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

In 1947, Denver attorneys Steve Hart and Joe Holland left established local practices to form a new, distinctly client-focused law firm. Over the years, Holland & Hart has grown to be the largest law firm in the Mountain West Region, with over 480 attorneys in 15 offices including Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Washington D.C.
Each Holland & Hart office offers the personal service you expect from a local firm, yet is backed by our nationally recognized lawyers and by today's most advanced computer technology. 
Holland & Hart provides legal counsel to individuals and companies of all sizes, from emerging businesses to large public corporations located throughout the country and internationally. 
Our goal is to develop long-term client relationships, based on close cooperation and solid results. We are committed to providing quality legal services to our clients, while maintaining a dynamic and satisfying work environment, and encouraging the professional and personal growth of individuals in the firm. 
We are committed to the growth and success of the firm by providing full service to our clients and their emerging legal services needs. We consistently hire lawyers with prior experience in other practice settings - senior associates and partners alike - and view them as important and strong contributors to our clients' satisfaction. 
We also consistently hire lawyers who happily make the move from the biggest of national firms - you know, those big-city bi-coastal firms? Denver is big-city enough for us, and apparently for them too. 
In addition to associate level lateral moves, we are always interested in exploring ways to expand our capabilities by bringing in partner-level lawyers, as well. As you'd expect, compensation and benefit packages for partners are unique. They are most often negotiated instead of following a set schedule.

Our Engineering Center: How a 50-year-old Building Continues to Impact Access and Equality for Modern Students
Janet Tsai, Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Engineering Plus

The CU Engineering Center celebrates its quinquagenary (50th birthday) in May 2016. Built at the height of the Space Race and Cold War, its distinctive concrete brutalist exterior was intended to demonstrate the cutting-edge research being performed there. Using the building as an example of a physical structure which has shaped and organized student activities across five decades, we will discuss ways that we can learn from the past and take informed action in light of historical legacies and traditions which may be surreptitiously limiting inclusion and diversity efforts in our disciplines.

Event Image AIA Lecture Series: Saint Peter in Rome: A Historian’s Perspective
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Dr. Tyler Lansford, author and instructor within the CU Department of Classics as he explains the Petrine tradition in its historical and archaeological context in "St. Peter in Rome: A Historian's Perspective.”

During the early Christian centuries, the tradition that the apostle Peter had ministered and died in Rome formed a leading component of Rome's claim to ecclesiastical primacy within the church universal.  As early as the second century, the Christian community of Rome identified a site where Peter was believed to be buried: progressively monumentalized, the memoria Petri (Tomb of Peter) today lies directly below the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica. 

Event Image Supply-Side Economics with Brian Domitrovic
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Conservative Thought and Policy Program speaker series presents:

Supply-Side Economics:

The Challenge of Overcoming Slow-Growth in this Millennium

Featuring Brian Domitrovic, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought & Policy

Wed., Feb. 17, 2016
7:00 p.m.
Benson Earth Sciences Room 180
University of Colorado Boulder

This event is free and open to the public.

Supply-side economics was the policy innovation of a generation ago that put an end to the “stagflation” episode of the 1970s and early 1980s. Its formula of monetary restraint in concert with tax-rate cuts was also crucial to the booms of the 1960s and the Roaring 1920s. In our contemporary environment of economic near-stagnation, the tradition of supply-side economics remains relevant and instructive.

Brian Domitrovic is the leading historian of supply-side economics. His book Econoclasts (2009) chronicled the history of the movement from its origins in academia in the 1950s through its policy triumph in the Ronald Reagan years. He will speak about the useful ways that the tradition of supply-side economics can inform our urgent debate over how to restore economic growth today.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Shane Keating
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Shane Keating, School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of New South Wales

The Oceanic Charney Problem: the role of surface buoyancy gradients on mesocale 
eddies and waves
The effect of a surface buoyancy gradient --- or, equivalently, a surface shear --- on the formation,
vertical structure, and transport properties of mesoscale eddies and waves is studied in an “oceanic”
version of the classical Charney problem. The analysis is carried out in the context of a simple model
flow that permits a systematic study of the competing effects of surface buoyancy, planetary vorticity,
and baroclinic shear in terms of two nondimensional parameters that emerge naturally from the problem:
the Charney-Green number relating the strength of the planetary potential vorticity gradient to
the surface buoyancy gradient, and the Phillips supercriticality quantifying the stability of the mean shear
profile. It is shown that the presence of a surface buoyancy gradient implies faster Rossby wave propagation
and subtly modifies the classical criteria for Charney and Phillips-type instability. This has important
consequences for the ensuing nonlinear equilibrated flow, resulting in an energized submesoscale
energy spectrum. In addition, the surface buoyancy gradient rapidly generates buoyancy variance close
to the surface, strongly modifying the nature of the turbulent cascades and the vertical structure of
the eddies. Idealized quasigeostrophic simulations show a transition from surface quasigeostrophic
turbulence near the surface to classical geostrophic turbulence in the interior.

A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Radial Basis Function-Generated Finite Differences (RBF-FD): New Computational Opportunities in the Geosciences

A novel mathematical methodology is presented for modeling a wide array of physics in the geosciences. It based on a mesh-less approach known as radial basis function -generated finite differences. Due to its independence of any grids or mappings for irregular geometries (as is needed with finite difference, volume or element methods), where the physics is resolved can be directly connected to where the observational data is sampled. As a result, it gives far better physical representations than any other methods at coarser resolutions, allowing the data to be better assimilated for initialization of models. Furthermore, it uses the same basis functions as that those used in spatial geostatistics, allowing for a more unified mathematical framework in quantifying uncertainties. Due to the structure of the resulting matrices, it scales extremely well on accelerator computer architectures. It is currently being considered at NOAA, and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF), and NCAR. Examples will be given from a variety of geoscience fields.

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

EXPLORING DIGITAL HUMANITIES: A Lecture Series on Research and Pedagogy

 

Associate Professor, Ian Matthew Miller

St. John’s University

 

“Text Modeling the Emperor’s Archives: Exploring Digital Approaches to Chinese History”

 

Center for British and Irish Studies, Norlin Library 5th floor

Monday Feb 22, 5-6:30 p.m.

 

Premodern China offers an almost unparalleled body of texts ripe for digital  analysis: hundreds of years of court and private records compiled by an infamously  large and highly literate bureaucracy, many of which have since been digitized. Yet  premodern Chinese texts pose their own set of issues – both legal and linguistic. In  this talk, Miller will detail some of the issues encountered in text modeling two  different corpora: a set of 300 thousand entries in the records of the imperial court;  and a set of more than 600 genealogical essays in private collections. Miller will  explore how text modeling allows historians to capture and analyze topics across  very large numbers of texts, but also raises questions about the nature of the data  captured through these automated models.

 

About Dr. Miller:


Ian Matthew Miller is a historian of pre-modern China. His work focuses on long-term social, intellectual, and environmental change, often through the application  of digital methods. Trained at Harvard University, he has recently joined the faculty  at St. John’s University, where he is assistant professor in the Department of History.  Professor Miller’s interests include banditry and unrest, genealogy, tax policy, and  food history. His current project focuses on land ethics and wood rights in South  China.

The Babylonian Talmud is arguably the most important book in the Jewish tradition. But beyond the ideas that the Talmud expresses and the commentaries it has motivated, the Talmud has played an important symbolic role representing Judaism, Jewishness and Jews. In this talk, Wimpfheimer will explain how the physical form of the Talmud has come be iconized within modern Judaism.
 
Barry WimpfheimerBarry Scott Wimpfheimer is Associate Professor of Religious Studies & Law and director of The Crown Family Center of Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University. Wimpfheimer’s first monograph Narrating the Law: A Poetics of Talmudic Legal Stories deconstructs a longstanding dichotomy that divides the Talmud into, respectively, legal and narrative sections.  A second monograph, The Babylonian Talmud: A Biography, (Princeton: Princeton University Press, forthcoming 2017) charts the reception of the Talmud and demonstrates the impact the work has had over the last millennium as a book, as a central aspect of Jewish intellectual discourse and as a symbol of Judaism, Jewishness and Jews. Wimpfheimer received the Salo and Jeanette Baron Prize for his 2005 Columbia University dissertation and has been a Fellow at Harvard’s Center for Jewish Studies and at Northwestern’s Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.

CompSci Today: Solomonik (ETH Zurich)
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Edgar Solomonik - 3:30pm-4:30pm
ALGORITHMS AS MULTILINEAR TENSOR EQUATIONS


ABSTRACT: Tensors provide a powerful abstraction for expressing algorithms on sparse or dense datasets in their natural dimensionality. Graph algorithms such as betweenness centrality, as well as recursive algorithms such as FFT and bitonic sort, can be succinctly written as tensor operations over a suitable algebraic structure. Solomonik will introduce communication and synchronization cost lower bounds for a general class of tensor algorithms, including sparse iterative methods and matrix factorizations. Then, he will present parallel algorithms that achieve minimal cost with respect to these bounds and obtain improved scalability on supercomputers. Additionally, he will describe new innovations in handling symmetry and sparsity in tensors. Some of the proposed algorithms are deployed in a massively-parallel tensor framework, whose development has been driven by applications in quantum chemistry. Solomonik will show the performance of the framework for algorithmic benchmarks as well as for coupled cluster methods, which model electronic correlation by solving tensor equations.

BIO: Edgar Solomonik is a postdoctoral fellow at ETH Zurich working in the field of parallel numerical algorithms.  His research introduced more communication-efficient algorithms for numerical linear algebra and his software for tensor computations has been widely adopted in the field of electronic structure calculations.  He obtained his BS from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, both in Computer Science.  He was the recipient of the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, the David J. Sakrison Memorial Prize, and the ACM-IEEE George Michael HPC Fellowship.
Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Willy Hereman
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Willy Hereman, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Colorado School of Mines

Symbolic Computation of Scaling Invariant Lax Pairs in Operator Form for Completely Integrable Systems

Based on scaling symmetry properties, a direct method to compute Lax pairs in operator form for completely integrable systems will be presented.

By splitting the determining equations for the Lax pair into kinematic and dynamical constraints, the problem can eventually be reduced to solving nonlinear algebraic equations.

The method will be illustrated with well-known examples from soliton theory and applied to a three parameter class of fifth-order KdV-like evolution equations.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Brown Bag   Ramaley N240

12:00 - 12:50

Christine Avena

Did you know that Colorado hosts more than 16 species of bats? Or that we have a colony of Townsend's big eared bats in Mallory Cave near Chautauqua, hoary and red bats in the open space, and both little and big brown bats roosting on campus? In this talk, I will give a brief introduction into the dark and wonderful world of the species that call Colorado home, as well as review basic bat ecology and how they function within Colorado's unique ecosystems. I will use pictures from the field to give a tour of the state (according to bats), and some fun video of fieldwork in Salida at the Orient Mine.



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.

Orbital Averaging using Lie Transforms in Planetary Rings

The Cassini spacecraft has observed a large variety of nonlinear spiral density waves in Saturn’s rings that are resonantly excited by natural satellites orbiting outside of the rings.  The orbital period in the rings is typically much shorter than the time scale for dynamical evolution of large-scale density waves. This large separation in time scales motivates the derivation of reduced models by averaging the equations of motion over the local orbital period.  The published theory used to derive nonlinear wave equations for spiral density waves carry out this averaging with uncontrolled approximations.  Recent observations of solitary waves propagating through some of the density waves at about twice the local group velocity motivate a more systematic derivation.  In this talk a Hamiltonian theory for resonantly
perturbed planetary rings that allows us to carry out the orbit averaging using Lie transform perturbation theory will be presented. The Hamiltonian theory introduces new terms in the nonlinear wave equation in addition to the terms found in the existing theory.  These new terms may help explain the formation of solitary waves when the co-orbital satellite, Janus and Epimetheus, exchange orbits every four years.

WHAT'S NEW IN THE BIG DATA THEORY

ABSTRACT: Yaroslavtsev will cover some recent advances in theoretical foundations of big data analysis and its applications to distributed data storage, clustering and computer vision. He will discuss new topics in distributed algorithms and communication complexity motivated by advances in systems such as Hadoop/MapReduce/Apache Spark and services provided through cloud infrastructure. He will show how the number of interactive supersteps/rounds plays a crucial role in determining the overall performance and hence also the cost of performing a distributed computation.

He will illustrate this premise through multiple examples including:

-- Tradeoffs between the number of rounds and communication required for checking consistency between two large distributed file systems.
-- Round-efficient distributed algorithms for clustering and matching problems on multi-dimensional feature vectors.

BIO: Grigory Yaroslavtsev (http://grigory.us) is a fellow at the Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania hosted by the departments of Computer and Information Sciences and Statistics at the Wharton School of Business.

PROGRAMMING IS HARD & BORING: EXPLORING COGNITIVE AND AFFECTIVE CHALLENGES IN COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION RESEARCH 


ABSTRACT: Computational thinking has been identified as an essential 21st century skill relevant not only to computer scientists. Unfortunately, many computer users, particularly children, consider programming to be hard and boring. There are two fundamental barriers to making programming more appealing: cognitive challenges to overcoming the “hard” part, and affective challenges to overcoming the “boring” part. Over the last 20 years, Repenning's team has systematically explored these cognitive and affective challenges, and with AgentSheets/AgentCubes, they have created Computational Thinking Tools to transform “hard and boring” into “accessible and exciting” by pioneering concepts such as drag and drop programming. The presentation will discuss computational thinking, demonstrate computational thinking tools, and outline the Scalable Game Design curriculum used in the USA, Mexico and Switzerland. Additionally, the presentation will discuss the notion of Cyberlearning as means to evaluate and support computer science activities through the analysis of real time design information. In 2013, as part of the Hour of Code, the AgentCubes 3D Game design activity was used by nearly a quarter million participants in just one week. New kinds of evaluation instruments, relevant to computer science education research, emerge from these large data collections.

BIO: Alexander Repenning is the Hasler Professor and Chair of Computer Science Education at the PH FHNW (School of Teacher Education at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland), a computer science professor at the University of Colorado, and a founder of AgentSheets Inc. He is directing the Scalable Game Design Initiative at the University of Colorado. Repenning’s research interests include education, end-user programmable agents, and artificial intelligence. He has worked in research and development at Asea Brown Boveri, Xerox PARC, Apple Computer and Hewlett Packard. Repenning is the creator of the AgentSheets/AgentCubes simulation and game computational thinking tools. He has offered game design workshops in the USA, Mexico, South America, Europe and Japan. His work has received numerous awards including the Gold Medal from the mayor of Paris for “most innovative application in education of the World Wide Web,” as well as “best of the best innovators” by ACM and has been featured in WIRED Magazine. Repenning has been a Telluride Tech Festival honoree for contributions to computer science. Repenning is an advisor to the National Academy of Sciences, the European Commission, the National Science Foundation, The Japanese Ministry of Education and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Mujadad Zaman:  Mujadad’s research focuses on intellectual history and in particular the relationship between the development of pre-modern systems of education and contemporary university systems. Having gained his academic training in the social and philosophical sciences, Mujadad’s doctoral research at the University of Cambridge focused on the purpose of the Research University in the emerging ‘Knowledge Society’. He continues to work on themes related to education (both historical and contemporary) and is currently pursuing two projects to that affect. The first traces the historical development of philosophies of Islamic education and their enactment in institutes of Muslim learning and influence on centres of medieval Christian scholarship. The second is a contemporary analysis of the problems facing higher education and whether these can be understood as deep-rooted intellectual rifts in what he refers to as a lose of an ‘academic imagination’. Apart from work on education, his intellectual interests span papers and presentations on philosophy, aesthetics and modern social theory. Mujadad has also lectured at Cambridge on modern intellectual history and religion in (post) modernity. He is presently a co-editor, along with Nadeem Memon, of the forthcoming volume Philosophies of Islamic Education: Historical Perspectives and Emerging Discourses (Routledge, 2015).

Minimizing the Risk of Risk: Computing Risk Measures via Empirical Risk Minimization

An important open question in statistics and machine learning is the characterization of which statistics can be computed by minimizing a loss function over a data set, a procedure known as Empirical Risk Minimization (ERM).  We propose a more practical question: since all statistics can be computed if one includes enough optimization parameters, what is the minimum number of parameters needed to compute the statistic?  Building on previous work, we formalize this in a new notion of complexity, and establish several general results and techniques for proving upper and lower complexity bounds.  These results provide tight bounds for a large class of statistics known as Bayes risks, which includes spectral risk measures, a popular measure of risk in the finance literature.  We conclude with applications to superquantile regression of Rockafellar and Royset, and the risk quadrangles of Rockafellar and Uryasev.

The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image CU on the Weekend - The Animal Self: Insights from Sociology
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Most people who live with animals believe that they have some sense of who they are. But do they really have a self, or are we just anthropomorphizing? Sociology Professor Leslie Irvine has studied how our interactions with animals provide evidence of self-awareness. She will discuss what it means when people feel a "connection" with animals and how understanding our shared experience can help us build a more humane world.

This free program is part of the CU on the Weekend series sponsored by the Office for Outreach & Engagement. Visit ce.colorado.edu/weekend for more information.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.
