Colloquium - Camp

ECCR 155

Computing Innovations and SmartGeo
Colorado School of Mines

Tracy Camp, a Full Professor of Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines, will be speaking about the Development of Intelligent Geo systems. In this presentation, she will discuss the motivation for her SmartGeo program, the progress they have made thus far, and the challenges that still exist to reach our goal of intelligent geosystems. We will also consider other important computing innovations that have made our world a better place.

Much of our world's subsurface is contaminated, due to legacy mining and milling sites; without treatment, the earth's water supply is at risk. The goal of the SmartGeo program at the Colorado School of Mines is to develop intelligent geosystems, in order to enable engineered and natural earth structures and environments to (1) sense their environment and (2) adapt to improve performance. They work in conjunction with geophysicists and environmental engineers in order to connect these geosystems with our digital world through wireless sensor networks. To enable cost effective geophysical monitoring through wireless sensing, we developed a new wireless hardware platform called gsMote (geophysical signal mote). To enable accurate post-processing of geophysical data, we developed a new localization protocol to obtain precise mote locations.

This talk is sponsored by the Computer Science Department ACM Student Chapter.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
