UW Libraries: UW Theses and Dissertations – 12/9, 1:30 p.m.

“UW Theses and Dissertations” will be held online on Friday, December 9, from 1:30-2:30 pm. For many students, the thesis or dissertation represents one of their first forays into publicly disseminating the products of their scholarship. This webinar will give an overview of the copyright and publishing issues students should consider, and demonstrate how their decisions are reflected in the ETDAdministrator system. It will offer the opportunity for students to think through their options for how and when to share their work and to ask questions about the process.

Please register here to receive an invitation with the zoom information.

For those students who are unable to attend this session, we do have two asynchronous resources:

As always, my department is also very happy to answer individual questions from students; they can contact me directly or email uwlib-etds@uw.edu.

Colloquium: Dr. Kevin Barker, PNNL – 12/6, 10:30 a.m.

Title: Codesign to Support Converged Scientific Workloads at PNNL

Date/Time: Tuesday, December 6th, 10:30 a.m.

Faculty Host: Sajjad Moazeni

Title: Codesign to Support Converged Scientific Workloads at PNNL

Abstract: The future of scientific computing hinges on the ability to effectively support converged workloads — workloads that incorporate elements of traditional High-Performance Computing, AI/ML, and data analytics.  Historically, these computational paradigms have been isolated into distinct and divergent silos, with separate programming languages, programming models, and even hardware architectures supporting each.  However, this artificial separation in now resulting in roadblocks to scientific progress as computational scientists increasingly desire to merge these paradigms into single tightly-integrated workflows.  At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, we have been working to bring principles of codesign together to create hardware and software computing systems that will effectively support this new era of scientific computing.  In this talk, I will describe some of these efforts and point to how we envision the future of computing within the US Department of Energy.

Bio: Kevin J. Barker is a Chief Scientist and Group Lead for the Physical and Computational Sciences Directorate’s High-Performance Computing (HPC) Group with over 16 years’ national laboratory experience leading impactful Computer Science research. Research interests include emerging and novel computing architectures; hardware/software codesign to support future scientific computing workflows; large-scale runtime software; and performance modeling, prediction, and analysis. Dr. Barker serves Principal Investigator for the DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) funded Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation (CENATE), which aims to understand the impact of future computing technologies on scientific workloads of interest, and as Chief Scientist for the laboratory-funded Data-Model Convergence (DMC) Research Initiative.

Pondeo: Student help

From: Ryan Crowley <ryancrowleysoccer@gmail.com>
Date: Wed, Nov 23, 2022 at 11:06 AM
Subject: Unique Opportunity
Hey there!

My name is Ryan Crowley. Since graduating from the UW in 2021, I have been involved in a couple of startups. Just recently, I have been working on Pondeo, a consumer electronics device used for recording youth sports games hands-free. You can check our website at www.pondeo.ai.
Due to our inexperience in hardware, my co-founder and I are in desperate need of some help while we build a functional prototype. I would like to extend an opportunity to any UW EE student to work for us. This could be a unique opportunity to not only gain paid experience but help build a product that we think has some real potential. 
I know this is a big ask, but if you could pass this email along to the department, it would be incredibly valuable for us. 
Thanks so much!
