Professor Philip Johnson appeared with colleagues Dr. Joe Mobley and Dr. Helen Spafford on ThinkTech Hawaii to discuss the March for Science. The March for Science will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 3-7pm at the University of Hawaii, Manoa campus.
Molokaʻi Math Day took place on April 8, 2017 in conjunction with the Hoʻomau festival at Lanikeha, Hoolehua on Molokaʻi. Molokaʻi Math Day was initiated in 2011 by the department of Mathematics and has become a yearly event since then. On April 8th, two UH faculty, two post-doctoral researchers, three graduate students and seven undergraduate students flew to Molokaʻi to run activities including robotics, toothpick geometry, origami 3D-shapes and probability games.
This year, Kari Noe of the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization and Applications participated with a portable VR station displayed for the first time, it proved to be a resounding success among Molokaʻi’s population with students lining up to dive into their first encounter with the world of virtual reality.
Kari is an undergraduate double major in Information & Computer Science and Academy for Creative Media (ACM). Kari also works as a laboratory research assistant in LAVA funded by ACM System.

ICS Portfolios (http://ics-portfolios.github.io) is a new service provided by the ICS Department to highlight the skills and interests of faculty, students, and alumni. It is based on TechFolios, a portfolio template system designed by Professor Philip Johnson and used in the software engineering curriculum.
Professor Scott Robertson appeared on ThinkTech Hawaii on March 8th. He talked with host Jay Fidel about human-computer interaction, computer science, and social media and civic engagement.
On Feb 6-7, 2017, HI-Vision (Hawaiʻi Workshop on Establishing Trans-Pacific Visualization Research & Education Collaboration Networks) was held at the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization and Applications at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. This workshop was co-organized by Jason Leigh of the University of Hawaii, Fang Pang Lin of the National Center for High Performance Computing, NARL, Shinji Shimojo of Osaka University, and Bill Chang – formerly of National Science Foundation.
28 Researchers from Hawaii, Taiwan and Japan were invited to brainstorm on new applications of visualizations using large scale display walls in the areas of Renewable Energy, Coral Ecology, Water Resource Management, Disaster Response, and the Creative Arts and Culture- all issues that are of major importance to island nations in the Pacific Rim such as Hawaii, Taiwan and Japan.
