The CWDS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief presentation of a paper or a research project.
All seminars will be held at 12:30 on Wednesdays in TLB 307B on the third floor of the Tioga Library Building. We will aim to conclude by 1:30.
If you are interested in learning more about our seminar series please contact Mohamed Ali.
|Title||Date of Presentation||Speaker||Affiliation||Research Focus|
|Topologically Defined Flash Memory||04/05/2017||Yanjun Ma, PhD||Intellectual Ventures||
Abstract - Present flash memory uses an analogue quantity, the threshold voltage of a transistor, to store digital data by dividing the available threshold voltage range into two (for SLC), four (MLC), or eight (TLC) levels. Hardwired thresholds are usually assigned to define the boundaries between levels. This hardware defined approach has served the non-volatile memory industry well but faces problems such as reduced program/erase endurance and complexity in dealing with the increasing error correction requirement.
|Video Games to Teach Security||04/19/2017||Dr. Mario Guimaraes||Saint Martin’s University||
Abstract - This presentation will describe the benefits of using Video Games in Education, How Video Games fit with multiple disciplines, the market of video games, products used to develop Video Games, how video Games fit with Security. In Security, there is less opportunity for Active Learning than other areas of IT such as Programming, System Analysis or Databases. There is not a clear final product. A Professor can’t come in and create viruses. Video games offer the possibility to create simulations that bridge the gap between theory and practice.
|Master Project Presentations - Lightning Talks||05/24/2017||UW Tacoma Institute of Technology||
Master Project Presentations. These presentations will be 'Lightning Talk' style. Poster session followed by two 15 minute student presentations.
|Master Thesis Defense||05/31/2017||UW Tacoma Institute of Technology||
