Event Image Live Free Weekend
All Day

The Live Free Weekend is a chance for you to live your life free from the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or recreational drugs. It offers us a chance to step back and look at how our attitudes about alcohol and drugs affect our day-to-day lives.

To participate, you accept the challenge of no drinking and no recreational drug use for 96 hours. If abstinence is not your goal, we still hope you participate by signing the binge-free agreement; electing not to binge drink while abstaining from recreational drug use.

Join us, clear your head, and connect with your friends in new ways.  Let’s create a community that fosters well-being and connection.

Event Image ECEE Seminar
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Sustainable Energy Engineering Dr. Mehrdad “Mark” Ehsani Director, Sustainable Energy & Vehicle Engineering Program Texas A & M University Abstract: This seminar will cover many issues related maintaining our society in a sustainable way. There are pending problems leading to a shortage of many resources including the need to manage • Human Society: energy, population growth, food, resource depletion, • Economy: Economic Disasters, Economic Refugees, Wealth Imbalances • Resources: Finite Resources, Approaching shortages Finite Fossil Fuels, The living film covering the surface of planet earth is delicately balanced. The conditions for life are created by life. These conditions are complex of systems and feedback mechanisms that are poorly understood. Humanity now captures one quarter of primary productivity of the planet. However, we lack engineering systems to properly manage this productivity at the planetary scale. This is resulting in environmental impacts, such as biodiversity loss, pollution, and climate change. The solution is a new way of thinking and new technologies that I refer to as Sustainable Energy Engineering. In this seminar I will review the above issues with special attention to power electronics technologies of sustainable energy production, consumption and the relationship between these two. This will establish the foundations of the holistic sustainable energy production-consumption technology complex. Then I will examine some individual technologies with this insight. Biography: M. Ehsani received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin in 1973 and 1974, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1981, all in electrical engineering. From 1974 to 1977 he was with the Fusion Research Center, University of Texas, as a Research Engineer. From 1977 to 1981 he was with Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois, as a Resident Research Associate, while simultaneously doing the doctoral work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in energy systems and control systems. Since 1981 he has been at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas where he is now a Professor of electrical engineering and Director of Advanced Vehicle Systems Research Program and the Power Electronics and Motor Drives Laboratory. He is the author of over 300 publications, the co-author of twelve books, and has over 23 granted or pending US and EC patents. His current research work is in power electronics, motor drives, hybrid vehicles and their control systems. Dr. Ehsani is a Fellow of IEEE, an IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and Vehicular Technology Society Distinguished Speaker, IEEE Industry Applications Society and Power Engineering Society Distinguished Lecturer. He is also a registered professional engineer in the State of Texas.

Kanteena received the Wingspread Collector's Guide Award of Excellence and Judge's Choice at the prestigious Heard Museum Indian Artists' Show in Phoenix.

The Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference (RMIHC) is a unique conference planned and organized by the University of Colorado's history graduate students. The September 20-22, 2013 conference marks the fourteenth annual event. RMIHC seeks graduate students from the humanities, arts, and social sciences to create an informed discourse on the past and chart its impact on the present. The principle goal of the conference is to provide graduate students with the opportunity to present their original work among their peers in an atmosphere that is both professional and congenial. The interdisciplinary nature  provides outstanding opportunities for students to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue and to network with fellow graduate students from across the country. Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, art history, philosophy, anthropology, comparative literature, and theater.

RMIHC mirrors the format and structure of a professional academic conference; each panel features a faculty moderator, a graduate student commentator, and a group discussion. We welcome first-time presenters and more advanced graduate students who wish to prepare for larger conferences. RMIHC combines the high standards of a professional conference with an atmosphere conducive to productive learning, positive feedback, and interdisciplinary discussion.

Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference (RMIHC) is a unique conference planned and organized by the University of Colorado's history graduate students. The September 20-22, 2013 conference marks the fourteenth annual event. RMIHC seeks graduate students from the humanities, arts, and social sciences to create an informed discourse on the past and chart its impact on the present. The principle goal of the conference is to provide graduate students with the opportunity to present their original work among their peers in an atmosphere that is both professional and congenial. The interdisciplinary nature  provides outstanding opportunities for students to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue and to network with fellow graduate students from across the country. Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, art history, philosophy, anthropology, comparative literature, and theater.

RMIHC mirrors the format and structure of a professional academic conference; each panel features a faculty moderator, a graduate student commentator, and a group discussion. We welcome first-time presenters and more advanced graduate students who wish to prepare for larger conferences. RMIHC combines the high standards of a professional conference with an atmosphere conducive to productive learning, positive feedback, and interdisciplinary discussion.

Speaker:  Serge Campeau

Adapting to Stress: The Path of Most "Resistance"

Organisms, including humans, are bombarded by a multitude of daily physical and psychological challenges; yet most of these encounters fail to elicit significant responses that are routinely evoked by stressors.  Some reports suggests, however, that adaptation to repeated stressor exposure is dysregulated in depressed or anxious clinical populations.  Such evidence may indicate that faulty brain mechanisms of adaptation contribute to the emergence of mood disorders in humans.  This possibility is currently difficult to evaluate due to our poor understanding of the neural mechanisms of adaptation to stress.  I will discuss our attempts at shedding light on putative brain regions that contribute to this important adaptive function, through the use of rodent models.  I will also present the results of some of our most recent studies suggesting that adaptation to repeated stress appears to provide a key process in reducing the impact of later challenges (stress resistance).  Together, this line of research may provide new insights into the value and effectiveness of behavior therapy and new brain targets of interest associated with stress-related disorders.

4:00 PM

Protecting Our Troops From Damaging Stress
Members of the military, especially warfighters, are exposed to a plethora of stressors that include negative affective states (i.e., fear/anxiety), physical stressors (pain, injury, environment) and sleep deprivation/disturbances. The stressors suffered by our warfighters are often complex and include a combination of acute, chronic and repeated stressors. The negative impact such stressors have on the cognitive, emotional, and physical well being of our warfighters is irrefutable. Warfighters suffer high incidences of depression, anxiety and anger/impulsivity disorders, and PTSD. Although some progress has been made in treating these disorders, it would be valuable to find ways to prevent the development of the problems in the first place. In this presentation I will present the results from a series of animal studies supported by the Army Research Office (DARPA) and designed to test the impact of repeated exposures to complex stressors on physiology, and to search for physiological markers that may be predictive of the "tipping point" i.e., when the stress response changes from adaptive to maladaptive (stress sensitization).

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

"Distributed Information Processing in Materials that Think"
Nikolaus Correll
Correll Robotics Lab, CU-Boulder Computer Science

ECCR 265
Thursday, September 26
3:30-4:30 PM

PLEASE NOTE that this colloquium has been rescheduled to Thursday, Sept. 26

ABSTRACT: Materials that think are enabled by recent advances in smart polymers, desktop manufacturing systems and miniaturization of computers. These materials tightly integrate sensing, actuation, computation and communication in a periodic, amorphous fashion, which might enable revolutionary new composites with fully programmable capabilities. The challenges in creating materials that think lie at the intersection of material science engineering and computer science, and - from a CS perspective - require advances in distributed algorithms for signal processing, control and routing of information.

I illustrate these challenges and recent advances by our group using three experimental case studies, all using identical computational infrastructure: (1) a soft robotic skin that can locate and classify textures by locally sampling, processing and classifying vibrations and route relevant information to a CPU using multi-hop networking; (2) A modular building block for creating intelligent walls and facade systems that can recognize complex gestures; and (3) variable-stiffness composites that can assume arbitrary shapes using simple actuation and local feedback control. Albeit serving different functions at different scales, material and computational properties can be designed using a unified mathematical framework based on abstracting the computer network as continuous amorphous medium.

BIO: Nikolaus Correll is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science since 2009 with joint appointments in Electrical, Aerospace and Materials engineering. Nikolaus joined CU's faculty after a two-year post-doc at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from EPFL in 2007 and earned a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich in 2003. Nikolaus is the recipient of a 2012 NSF CAREER award and 2012 NASA Early Career Faculty Fellowship.

Event Image The Chinese Crises of 1900: Drought, Insurrection, and Invasion in the Year of the Boxers
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

This illustrated talk, given by Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Chancellor's Professor of History at UC Irvine, will focus on the Boxer Crisis of 1900, looking at how it has been linked to "catastrophes" of different sorts. The anti-Christian Boxers were inspired to take action initially in part because of a natural catastrophe, in the form of a devastating drought, which they claimed was due to local gods being angered by the worship of a foreign deity. Once the Boxers laid siege to the foreign legations in Beijing, some Western commentators, influenced by the time's Yellow Peril notions, began to fixate on the idea that the rising could have a catastrophic impact on all of Christendom. Finally, due to the brutal measures used to suppress the Boxers, the foreign invasion that lifted the siege of Beijing have come to be seen in China as having had catastrophic consequences for the country. Among the themes Professor Wasserstrom will address are the ways that these different catastrophic sides of the events of 1900 have been emphasized and downplayed in Chinese and Western presentations of the Boxer Crisis in textbooks, journalism, and various forms of popular media, from films and novels to performances by Buffalo Bill's troupe and an episode of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show. Also to be explored are the ways that memories of and stories about the Boxers have affected Chinese relations with the West up to the present.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
12:00 PM

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Terrence McNally’s award-winning play is based on the legendary series of master classes given by opera diva Maria Callas at Juilliard. Alternately dismayed and impressed by her students, Callas retreats into recollections of her own life and career; from her early ‘ugly duckling’ years, her fierce hatred of her rivals, the unforgiving press, her triumphs at La Scala, her affair with Aristotle Onassis and ultimately she bares the sacrifice taken in the name of art. Master Class won both the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play and the Tony Award for Best Play in 1996.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Explaining Word Learning Using Domain-General Mechanisms

Decades of associative learning research across many species have revealed a handful of basic assumptions and mechanisms that can explain diverse empirical results. While human language acquisition proceeds quickly and can be difficult to capture in the lab, researchers have theorized a variety of language-specific learning principles and constraints without first applying domain-general mechanisms. Although I do not rule out language-specific mechanisms, in this talk I seek to explain a variety of language acquisition principles using more general mechanisms. Using an associative model and several empirical findings, I show how the principles of mutual exclusivity - an assumption of 1-to-1 word-object mappings, contrast, and other constraints related to fast mapping nouns may result from attention mechanisms attributed to associative learning effects such as blocking and highlighting. However, unlike other associative models, the model I propose has selective attention directed by simple competing bias for familiar pairs and for stimuli with uncertain associate. Given sufficient time and audience interest, I can address how the model accounts for effects resulting from varied word frequency, contextual diversity, temporal contiguity, illusory correlation, and active learning.

Bio: George Kachergis finished his Ph.D. at Indiana University in 2012, working with Rich Shiffrin and Chen Yu on modeling language acquisition with computational learning and memory models. He is currently a postdoc at Leiden University in the Netherlands working Bernhard Hommel on knowledge representation (i.e., teaching robots how to make pancakes: http://www.robohow.eu). George also has avid interests in categorization, semantic space models, neural networks, and ultimate frisbee. More about George and his research can be found at his website: http://www.kachergis.com.

Event Image ATLAS Speaker Series: "Education Technology Today: Radical Ideas in Practical Times"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Idit Caperton, who is an ATLAS Advisory Board member and founding funder of the ATLAS Speaker Series, is a pioneer in using new media technology for learning, innovation and globalization through constructionist learning theory. She conducted breakthrough research at the MIT Media Lab that led to publishing the book Constructionism with Seymour Papert. Caperton is the founder of the World Wide Workshop, which is a global non-profit, developing platforms that combine game mechanics and social networking for learning. 
She will review recent far-reaching ed tech ideas, such as Sugata Mitra's School-in-the-Cloud and Nicholas Negroponte's One-Laptop-per-Child. She will posit how scalable technologies and programs that work within the school system may be today's only promising route toward immediate change to support college-ready, career-ready, innovation-ready citizens – young and old.

The ATLAS Speaker Series, which is made possible by a generous donation by Idit Harel Caperton and Anat Harel, hosts distinguished visitors from academia, industry and the arts as part of the ATLAS Institute’s mission to explore information and communication technologies and their effect on society. 

The series is an educational and experiential resource for students, faculty and the larger community to discuss the challenges, opportunities and innovative applications of technology. Talks usually run from 4-5 p.m. in the Cofrin Auditorium, ground floor, ATLAS 100 (enter from lobby), unless otherwise noted.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.
