Professor Han -- The Emergence of a Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing World

In the future, we foresee the emergence of a mobile and ubiquitous computing world in which every device interacts via pervasive wireless and wired links with every other device, e.g. Bluetooth-enabled PDA's, video-enabled cell phones, wearable computers, appliances, toys, kiosks, and sensors. This talk will provide a brief overview of the challenges posed by mobile and ubiquitous computing, and a survey of the exciting new research areas that are emerging in this field. I will highlight those areas of research of especial interest to myself, and describe my research projects.

Professor Eisenberg -- Computational Crafts in Education

This talk will describe some recent (and just-beginning) work in educational technology. The general theme of this work is the blending of computational and physical media to create new sorts of mathematical and scientific toys, kits, exhibits, and educational artifacts.

Professor Byrd -- Optimization Research at CU-Boulder

This overview looks at research in the CS department using optimization of potential energy for protein structure prediction. We also describe our efforts in developing fast algorithms for very large-scale optimization problems with nonlinear constraints.

Hosted by Elizabeth Bradley.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the talk in ECOT 831.
