Invited Technical Talk: Building Embedded Adaptive Systems
Location: Salon III
Presenter: Devika Subramanian
Over the past five years, I have been working on embedding machine learning into systems of value to society. I will present my work on building embedded adaptive systems to solve two important problems. The first is in the area of training; helping humans learn complex visualmotor tasks with strategic components by tracking their eyes, hands and brains in real-time. The second is in the arena of forecasting international conflict; tracking its evolution over time using information extracted from wire news stories. I will expose the common computational core of these problems and show an approach for designing adaptive embedded systems for a wide range of applications.
Storytelling as Role Modeling: Collecting Oral Histories
Location: Narcissus and Orange Blossom
Presenters: Barbara Boucher Owens (Southwestern University), Vicki L. Almstrum (The University of Texas at Austin), Lecia J. Barker (ATLAS Assessment and Research Center), E. Anne Gates Applin (Ithaca College)
The Computing Educators Oral History Project (CEOHP) provides the basis for exploring how to use interviews to support mentoring. Participants will analyze how sample interviews can be used in different settings and look at the major guiding events in their own stories. We will brainstorm ideas for a coalition to create a network of interviews from different contexts as inspiration across education, research, and industry.
Innovation Inside Corporations
Location: South Ballroom
Presenters: Roz Ho (Microsoft Corporation), Nancy Winget (Cisco Systems, Inc), Ramune Nagisetty (Intel Corporation), Cathy Lasser (IBM Research), Yvonne Wilson (Sun Microsystems)
This is a moderated panel of female leaders from a cross-section of technology companies to discuss their experiences of nurturing innovative ideas, turning these ideas into products, and getting the products marketed to customers while working within large corporations. They will share their stories and best practices for turning their visions into reality. They will discuss challenges along the way and how they overcome them.
Outstanding Women in Computer Security: A Panel
Location: Salon VI and VII
Presenters: Carol Taylor (Eastern Washington University), Carrie Gates (Computer Associates), Rose Shumba (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), Deb Frincke (PNNL), Becky Bace (Infidel)
We are proposing a panel of women who are working in computer security. Objectives of this panel are to highlight the accomplishments of women currently working in the area of information assurance and describe opportunities in this field. Our panel is highly relevant to this years Grace Hopper Celebration theme of “inventing the future”. Most of these women are leaders and have been instrumental in advancing this field.
Location: Salon I and II
Presenters: Kathleen E Naughton (Hewlett-Packard), Sheri Mayer (Hewlett-Packard), Sheila Castaneda (Clarke University), Celeste Null (Intel), Carol Muller (MentorNet), Peisun Wu (Google), Jody Mahoney (Anita Borg Institute)
The Workplace Mentoring Panel will: Explore a Cross-section of Industry and Academia-to-Industry mentoring. Let you Learn that mentoring and being mentored is for anyone–not just seniors to juniors. Let you Learn what opportunities exist within industry or academia-to-industry Show you How to start a program if one isn't active or available in your company.
Location: Salon VIII
Presenters: Rachel Hutter
