Planetarium show: Distant Worlds- Alien Life?
Performance
Sloan Hall

“Distant Worlds – Alien Life?” explores the possibility of life on other planets. It gives the limits of biology as we know it, then intersects those constraints with what we know about Milky Way exoplanets. Imaginative visualizations of possible life forms are animated in a fulldome experience.

Chemistry proposal defense — Nate Buzitis, chemistry PhD student
Workshop / Seminar
Fulmer Hall

Recent developments in the production of microdroplets have demonstrated that chemical reactions can be accelerated by orders of magnitude. While the exact reasoning of kinetic increase is not fully known, very little research has occurred for inorganic reactions within microdroplets. In conjunction with a recently constructed ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS) system, kinetic information and stability constants can be determined for the products of microdroplet reactions. IM-MS allows for increased confidence in the determination of the collisional-cross section (CCS) as well as the mobility of the ion.

EECS Colloquium: Tunable and Low-cost Adaptivity for HPC Software to Easily Speed Up Applications on Supercomputers by Vivek Kale, Computer Scientist, Brookhaven National Laboratory
Online

Emerging and next-generation supercomputers have nodes that are becoming more powerful and complex, with a set of hosts, e.g., CPUs, and a set of devices, e.g., GPUs, on their nodes. During an application’s execution on such a supercomputer, load imbalances occurring within a node – induced by the application or induced by system noise and other complexities of the node’s hardware – slow down the application’s execution significantly.

EECS Colloquium: Compiler directed resilience techniques for HPC applications — Dr. Chao Chen, Staff Researcher, CoCoPie
Online

Transient faults are becoming a significant concern for emerging extreme-scale high performance computing (HPC) systems. This nascent problem is exacerbated by technology trends toward smaller transistor size, higher circuit density and the use of near-threshold voltage techniques to save power. They could corrupt the execution of long-running scientific applications by leading to either SDCs (incorrect values in outputs) or soft failures (abnormal termination, e.g., process crashes).

Developing Authentic Student Learning Outcomes
Workshop / Seminar

College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching
This workshop will introduce the concepts of measurable student learning outcomes and how they impact all other elements of course design. Well-written and implemented outcomes drive student engagement by allowing students to visualize what they will leave the class being able to do.

Keiko Hara: The Poetics of Space, Four Decades of Paintings and Prints
Exhibition
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

Keiko Hara’s exploration of her relationship to her surrounding environment has been continually formulated through the artist’s ongoing series titled, Topophilia. Meaning “a strong love of place,” the term topophilia, with its connection to humanistic geography, also represents a universal desire to hold onto ephemeral moments of beauty and sadness as related to conceptions of place—even if unattainable.

Our Stories, Our Lives: Irwin Nash photographs of Yakima Valley migrant labor
Exhibition
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

In 1967, Irwin Nash visited the Yakima Valley to take photographs for a free-lance magazine piece on valley agriculture. After completing this assignment, he nevertheless returned to the farming communities around Yakima each season until 1976 to document the lives of these workers. In the process, he created a compelling archive of more than 9,400 photographs.

Beyond the “One-minute Preceptor”: Ten tips for engaging students (efficiently) in clinical learning
Workshop / Seminar

This session will discuss emerging concepts that can enhance skills for new and experienced clinical preceptors. Participants will discuss models, evidence and practices that can enhance efficient precepting within the current frameworks of Competency-based Practice and Entrustable Professional Activities. The workshop will include discussion of routine and challenging clinical teaching scenarios, peer-to-peer experiences and sharing of best practices.
