Software Carpentry Workshop
9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Join Research Computing (RC) for the next Software Carpentry Workshop. Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

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.

University Women's Club Luncheon Lecture with Professor Brian Catlos - From Bob Dylan to Bill Gates:
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The University Women's Club is hosting a Luncheon Lecture with Professor Brian Catlos.  

Dr. Brian Catlos is a Professor of Religious Studies at CU-Boulder and is one of the world’s leading figures in the study of Mediterranean history.  His work centers on Muslim-Christian-Jewish relations and ethno-religious identity in medieval Europe and the Islamic World.  In 2014, he published Infidel Kings and Unholy Warriors: Faith, Power and Violence in the Age of Crusade and Jihad (http://www.colorado.edu/religiousstudies/briancatlos/reviews3.html)  as well as Muslims of Medieval Latin Christendom which won the Albert Hourani Book Prize, the most important award in the field of Middle Eastern and Islamic studies.

 

Dr. Catlos will provide his historical perspective on nationalism and its application to our current national and international political climate with regard to the Middle East and Islam. He will discuss how Islam has affected Western culture including rock and roll, the game of chess, and the digital revolution.  Dr. Catlos will address how medieval Spain and the Mediterranean world occupy a crucial place in the evolution of what we call “the West,” and why scholars are reconfiguring deeply rooted notions of where and how western culture originated and developed.

CompSci Colloquium: Abtin Rahimian (NYU)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Fast Algorithms for Structured Matrices in Simulations of Physical Systems

ABSTRACT: Real-world complex phenomena are typically characterized by interacting physical processes, uncertain parameters, dynamic boundaries and close coupling over a wide span of spatial and temporal scales. Predictive computational models of such phenomena inherit these characteristics and require many novel algorithmic components. In this talk, Rahimian will identify some common features and challenges in physical modeling, focusing on cellular hemodynamics and cell biomechanics, and outline algorithms that enable predictive simulations of these processes. He will discuss some recent advances in efficiently solving large linear systems arising from the discretization of such models using the Tensor-Train decomposition.

This is a joint work with Denis Zorin, Michael Shelley and George Biros.

BIO: Abtin Rahimian is a postdoctoral research associate at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. He earned his PhD in computational science and engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of George Biros. His thesis work primarily focused on designing parallel algorithms for direct numerical simulation of cellular-scale hemodynamics using boundary integral methods. He holds MSc in mechanical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and MSc in mathematics from Georgia Institute of Technology. After receiving his PhD, he worked at Goldman Sachs and WorldQuant.

His research interests include scientific computing, multi-scale computational modeling, cellular biomechanics and parallel algorithms for physical simulations. His current research projects include Tensor-Train accelerated solvers for structured matrices, large-scale boundary integral solvers for partial differential equations in complex and moving geometries, microstructure optimization and design, and modeling mesoscale biophysical systems.

Rahimian is a recipient of the IEEE/ACM SC10 Gordon Bell award from the Association for Computing Machinery’s for “outstanding achievement in high-performance computing applications.”

Tips o' the Trade: What Works and What Doesn't with Successful Writing
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*Fleming 150*  Special Presentation by: Peter Kratzer, PhD, Writing & Rhetoric.
Everyone, it seems, has words of advice when it comes to writing, but what advice is really useful? This one-hour tutorial will explore examples of advice, perhaps even seeing what common points might, in fact, be more than this-or-that person's opinion. At issue is whether we can identify common "best practices" for any occasion you face it school. When you leave the tutorial, the idea is that you then apply these practices for greater success in and progress through your studies.
