Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
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.

Enhancing Research Workflows with Open Science Framework for Institutions
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: Enhancing Research Workflows with Open Science Framework for Institutions

Location: Norlin E113

Date: Thursday, March 23rd, Noon-1pm

Presenter: Andrew Johnson

Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free and open source tool that allows you to manage all of the components of your research project (files, data, code, protocols, citations, etc.) from one simple web interface. OSF integrates easily with the tools you already use in your everyday workflows (Google Drive, Dropbox, GitHub, Zotero, etc.), provides fine-grained access controls, and enables open and reproducible research practices. With just one click, you can make any part of your project publicly available or completely private, and since CU Boulder is an institutional member, you can start using OSF simply by logging in with your IdentiKey. This workshop will provide an introduction to the many powerful features OSF offers to enhance your research workflows! Light refreshments will be provided.

Sponsored by University of Colorado Boulder University Libraries and the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship.
Event Image Lens on Climate Change: Student Video Screening
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Please join the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) for a screening of student-produced, entertaining short films about climate change, followed by a reception. Middle school students have worked with the support of CU Boulder science graduate students and students from the Colorado Film School to capture how a changing climate affects their communities. Videos include live footage, interviews of experts and sketches to tell their stories. This festive capstone event spotlights their work and offers a glimpse into the way they experience the impacts of climate change in their communities. The students of diverse backgrounds come from Angevine Middle School in Lafayette, Westview Middle School in Longmont, Mead Middle School, Whittier K-8 in Denver and Kearney Middle School in Commerce City.
Understanding Broader Impacts
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

NSF requires that all proposals explicitly describe the “broader impacts” of proposed scientific research—the ways in which the research will benefit society and achieve specific educational outcomes. The quality of broader impacts statements are increasingly valued by reviewers and affect the competitiveness of proposals.

Do you feel daunted by the prospect of developing your broader impacts statement or by the reality of implementing your broader impacts if your project is funded? CU Science Discovery will give you an overview of what successful broader impacts look like, introduce you to a variety of resources for collaboration and implementation, and offer a chance to brainstorm with education and outreach professionals about developing broader impacts components that will complement and enhance your research program. Join us for a presentation and lunchtime networking opportunity focused on how you can work to: improve STEM education (K-12) and STEM educator development; increase public scientific literacy; and create dynamic partnerships with industry and other off-campus organizations.

Participants include: Chaitanya Baru, NSF’s senior advisor for Data Science in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate (CISE); Stacey Forsyth, director, CU Science Discovery; Alexandra Rose, Broader Impacts and Teen Science Café program manager, CU Science Discovery; Kathryn Penzkover, high school programs manager, CU Science Discovery; and Bryn Rees, director, Office of Technology Transfer

Infertility and the Bible: A Colloquium with Joel Baden (Yale University)
12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

What does it mean when, in the Hebrew Bible, God’s first words to humanity are, “Be fruitful and multiply”? More importantly, what does it mean for those who are unable to do so? What kind of response does religion, and the Bible specifically, have to offer for this question in today’s world?
Event Image Silicon Flatirons Conference: The Changing Analysis of Copyright Infringement in Music
1:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This conference will bring together some of the nation's brightest artists, lawyers, policymakers and academics to discuss the rapidly changing analysis of copyright infringement in music. The "Blurred Lines" case, in which Marvin Gaye's estate secured a multi-million dollar judgment against songwriters and recording artists Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke for copyright infringement stemming from similar sounding songs, has dominated the recent industry headlines. For some commentators, this result is a win for artists whose work is routinely "borrowed" from without compensation or attribution.

In an era in which new music often evokes earlier works, the holding is alternately viewed as a potential threat to artistic creation, to the ultimate detriment of the public. Whatever the take, this seminal verdict marks a significant development in the application of copyright's substantial similarity doctrine to music. The conference will feature Richard Busch, attorney for Gaye's children Nona and Frankie Gaye, as well as musicians Aloe Blacc and DJ Spooky and music and legal scholars from CU and other universities.


APPM Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Yogesh Virkar
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Effects of multilayer network interactions on neural network dynamics

Networks of excitable units are found in varied disciplines such as social science, neuroscience, genetics, epidemiology, etc. Previous studies have shown that some aspects of network function can be optimized when the network operates in the `critical regime', i.e., at the boundary between order and disorder where the statistics of node excitations correspond to those of a classical branching process. We study the long-standing problem of determining the mechanisms by which the brain regulates its activity to operate in this regime. In particular, we study the dynamics of a two-layered network model consisting of an excitable node network and a complementary network that supplies resources required for node firing. More specifically, we study the dynamics of an excitable neural network consisting of neurons (nodes) connected via synapses (edges). Synaptic strengths are mediated by resources supplied by the complementary glial cell network. Resources from the bloodstream are supplied to the glial network at some fixed rate, resources transport diffusively within the glial cell network and ultimately to the synapses, and each time a presynaptic neuron fires the resources for all outgoing synapses get consumed at some fixed rate. We show that this natural and very compelling mechanism for feedback control can stabilize the critical state. Additionally, the neural network can learn and remember while staying critical. The critical state is characterized by power-law distributed avalanche sizes that are robust to changes in the supply, consumption and diffusion rates. Finally, we show that our findings are fairly robust to heterogeneity in model parameters or network structure.
