Going Beyond Compliance with Collaboration: Victim Support and Title IX Investigations at CU Boulder
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Research demonstrates survivors working with a confidential victim advocate report fewer feelings of self-blame and secondary victimization by the reporting processes. In addition, victims are more likely to stay engaged throughout an administrative or criminal process. Therefore, a collaborative relationship between victim services, Title IX investigators, and police is important for both the survivors and the campus. The Office of Victim Assistance (OVA) and The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) present nationally about the OVA and OIEC model of collaboration and victim support during Title IX investigations. Please join us to learn more about the OIEC process, the Office of Victim Assistance, and ways in which OVA and OIEC strive to go beyond compliance through this collaborative model. 

Space is limited. Please register to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

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.

CompSci Colloquium: Didem Unat (Koc University)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Locality and Parallelism in Emerging Heterogeneous Architectures

ABSTRACT: Problems in computational finance, life-sciences, machine learning, scientific computing, etc. are being studied on parallel architectures, which have become increasingly complex both in terms of memory subsystems and execution units. The increasing complexity causes substantial programming challenges to all application software developers since computing devices ranging from $100M supercomputers to $100 tablets are all equipped with homogeneous or heterogeneous multicore architectures. Applications must be optimized to fully utilize a diverse pool of resources; and they must be programmed under a simple and elegant representation that permits easy code migration on the next generation computers.

Unat's research revolves around the central topic of parallel, multicore and heterogeneous computing on state-of-the-art parallel architectures. She believes data locality abstractions and asynchronous execution are among the most promising solutions for alleviating the programming and scalability challenges. While programming abstractions provide performance portability and programmer’s productivity, asynchronous execution facilitates efficient use of available resources. 

In this talk, Unat will present software solutions that she and her collaborators are developing to facilitate application development through (1) programming model and programming abstractions with TiDA, (2) runtime system with Perilla, and (3) performance modeling and analysis with ExaSAT.

BIO: Didem Unat joined Koç University in September 2014 as a full-time faculty member. She is the head of the Parallel and Multicore Computing Laboratory with eight members at Koç and principle investigator in four EU and nationally funded projects. Previously she was at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and worked at the Exascale Combustion Co-design center. She is the recipient of the prestigious Luis Alvarez Fellowship in 2012 at the Berkeley Lab.

Her research interests are primarily in the areas of high-performance computing, parallel programming models, compiler analysis, runtime systems and performance modeling. She is currently working on designing and evaluating programming models for state-of-the-art computer architectures and leading the programming abstractions for data locality effort internationally through PADAL workshop series. She received her PhD under Scott B. Baden's research group at University of California-San Diego. In her thesis, she developed the Mint programming model and its source-to-source compiler to facilitate GPU programming. She holds a BS in computer engineering from Boğaziçi University. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, hiking and making mosaics.

Compressed Sensing, Sparse Recovery, and Image Inversion: Cautionary Notes 
Broadly speaking there are two classical principles for inverting the kinds of images that are measured in optics, electromagnetics and acoustics. The first principle is one of matched filtering, wherein a sequence of rank-one subspaces, or one-dimensional test images, is matched to the measured image by correlating or phasing in frequency, wavenumber, doppler, and/or delay. The second principle is one of parameter estimation in a separable linear model, wherein a modal representation for the field is posited and estimates of linear parameters (complex amplitudes) and nonlinear mode parameters (frequency, wavenumber, delay, and/or doppler) are extracted, usually based on maximum likelihood, or some variation on linear prediction. An important limitation of the classical principles is that any subsampling of the measured image has consequences for resolution (bias) and for variability (variance). 

Compressed sensing theory stands in contrast to the classical principles. It states that complex baseband data may be compressed before processing, when it is known a priori that the field to be imaged is sparse in a known dictionary, and it suggests that subsampling has manageable consequences for image inversion. Moreover, the compression step in compressed sensing typically employs randomly drawn linear combinations, which stand in stark contrast to the linearly phased combinations that are used to form narrow bands and focused beams in time/space series analysis. 
But how does the performance of compressed sensing compare with that of classical methods of modal analysis? This is the general question that we discuss in this talk. More specifically, we discuss recent analytical and numerical results that answer the following questions:

1. What is the sensitivity of compressed sensing to mismatch between the physical model that generated the data and the mathematical model that is assumed in the inversion algorithm?

2. What is the impact of compressive sampling on the Fisher information matrix, Cramer-Rao bound (CRB), and Kullback-Leibler divergence for estimating nonlinear parameters?

3. What is the impact of compressive sampling on SNR thresholds at which mean-squared error (MSE) in estimating parameters deviate sharply from the CRB?

The results are from joint work with Pooria Pakrooh, Yuejie Chi, Louis Scharf, Doug Cochran, Stephen Howard, Robert Calderbank, and Edwin Chong.

Event Image Talk About Tuesday - Stress Relief
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join us at the C4C Dining Center for our monthly Talk About Tuesday. In April we'll be offering free chair massages, fun arts and crafts projects and delicious dessert specials.
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Father and Daughter duo Ian Frazier and Cora Frazier, both humorists who write for The New Yorker magazine as well as a host of other prominent publications, will join Patty Limerick for a discussion—and many demonstrations!—of techniques for applying humor to contemporary issues that often carry strong emotional and political charge. With a principled absence of flowcharts, spreadsheets, cryptic theories, and quantitative analytics, the evening will feature free-roaming conversations, jokes, readings, plenty of laughter, unexpected insights, and perhaps even a surprise treat for the audience!

“Ian and Cora Frazier lead the nation—and maybe the planet—as sharp observers and original thinkers,” Patty Limerick, Faculty Director of the Center said. “An evening in their company will reaffirm the value and power of humor, especially in difficult times.”

The Fool for a Day Award was created to celebrate those individuals whose temperaments support the central conviction of the Center of the American West: a dose of good humor is essential to constructive public discussion, and not coincidentally, to public health. This event is made possible by the generosity of Bill and Jane Reynolds and is part of the Center of the American West’s Humor Initiative.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
