Grad. Seminar (2/2): Henri Casanova, “Simulating HPC Systems and Applications”

Thursday February 2nd, 4:30-5:30pm in POST 126 Speaker: Henri Casanova Title: “Simulating HPC Systems and Applications” Abstract: There is a well-identified problem of (lack of) reproducibility in experimental Computer Science research, and in particular in High Performance Computing (HPC) research.  Running experiments in simulation is one way to lower barriers to reproducibility, and it is used effectively in several areas of […]

Professor Susanne Still Highlighted in Quanta Magazine

Professor Susanne Still’s research on the energy costs of biological computation was mentioned in “How Life (and Death) Spring from Disorder,” in Quanta Magazine. Professor Still’s comments stem from her invited participation at a conference on Statistical Physics, Information Processing and Biology at the Santa Fe Institute.

If one looks at the success of online advertising, Amazon’s suggestions and Facebook advertising, indeed, monetizing human behavior related to purchasing […]

ICS/CIS Joint Research Seminar: Ravi Vatrapu on Jan. 9

Monday, Jan. 9th, 4:30-5:30, Hamilton Library 2K Social Set Analysis: A Set Theoretical Approach to Big Data Analysis Prof. Ravi Vatrapu Centre for Business Data Analytics Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Abstract: Current analytical approaches in computational social science can be characterized by four dominant paradigms: text analysis (information extraction and classification), social network analysis (graph […]

ICS Lunch and Seminar Series: Pawel Sobocinski on 11/3

Pawel Sobocinski Where and When: POST318B (ICSpace) Thursday November 3, 12:00pm Title: Compositional model checking of concurrent systems with Petri nets Abstract: Compositionality and process equivalence are both standard concepts of process algebra. Compositionality means that the behaviour of a compound system relies only on the behaviour of its components, i.e. there is no emergent behaviour. Process equivalence […]

ICS Lunch and Seminar Series: Bas Westerbaan on 10/13

Bas Westerbaan Where and When: POST318B (ICSpace) Thursday October 13, 12:00pm Title: In search for the smallest Kochen-Specker system Abstract: At the heart of the famous Conway-Kochen Free Will Theorem and Kochen and Specker’s argument against non-contextual hidden variable theories is the existence of a Kochen-Specker (KS) system: a finite set of points on the […]

Town Hall Meeting between ICS Faculty and Students

ICS faculty and students held a “town hall” meeting in ICSpace to discuss issues. Among the topics discussed were the “no repeat” policy for introductory classes, the “B-or-better” policy in introductory classes for majoring in ICS, the availability of writing intensive and oral intensive courses within ICS, class scheduling, and changes on the prerequisite structure. […]
