Colloquium

Directed Research Project Presentations

The first milestone in the CIS Ph.D. program is the Directed Research Project (DRP). Each student must complete this milestone within their first two years in the program. Typically, students devote the summer after their first year in the program exclusively to their research projects. In this colloquium, nine of our Department's Ph.D. students will present summaries on the progress on their DRP's over this past summer.

Faculty Research Topics

This week, we continue our introduction to faculty research topics. We encourage all faculty members and MS/PhD students to attend and hope these presentations would help students meet faculty members and get exposed to the full range of the research portfolio in our department. We feature the following speakers this week:

Collaborative Opportunities with CCDC ARL West

The Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has established a strong presence on the West Coast at its CCDC ARL West hub in Silicon Beach. Since the inception of ARL West in 2016, we have developed collaborations with universities across California and beyond. In order to develop stronger connections with the University of Oregon, ARL will be visiting several faculty to plan collaborative research. The delegation will include ARL West Regional Lead, Dr. Pete Khooshabeh, and other scientists and engineers, including, Mr.

Gender-Inclusivity in Software

Gender inclusiveness in the software industry is receiving a lot of attention these days, but it overlooks a potentially critical factor: software itself. Research shows that different people often work differently with software, and that some of these differences statistically cluster by gender.  In this talk, we'll begin by presenting a method we call GenderMag, which can be used to find and fix "inclusivity bugs" -- gender biases in software-mandated workflows that support people of one gender less well than people of another gender.

The proposed BS in Data Science degree

During Spring and Summer 2019, I led a small team to specify a BS in Data Science degree. This curriculum has been submitted to CASCC, along with the proposals for 6 new courses.

I will describe the due diligence that was performed prior to developing the curriculum and give an overview of the curriculum and the new courses.

There will be plenty of time at the end for questions/discussion.
