Conducting research is an integral part of our everyday lives. However, most of us didn’t get straightforward, practical information to some of the more crucial knowledge and skills needed when setting out to do a research project. Because such knowledge is essential for a successful career not only in the academia but also in the ... Read more about "Project management for Successful Postdocs"

By: Antoine Kaufmann - University of Washington IC Faculty candidate Abstract: TCP is widely used for client-server communication in modern data centers. But TCP packet handling is notoriously CPU intensive, accounting for an increasing fraction of data center processing time. Techniques such as TCP segment offload, kernel bypass, and RDMA are of limited benefit for ... Read more about "IC Colloquium: High Performance Data Center TCP Packet Processing"

By Stephan Merz, Inria Nancy (joint work with Leslie Lamport) Abstract Auxiliary variables are often needed for verifying that an implementation is correct with respect to a higher-level specification. They augment the formal description of the implementation without changing its semantics—that is, the set of behaviors that it describes. I will present rules for introducing ...

Substrate pre-organization remains the paradigm for bio-inspired catalytic strategies using supramolecular capsule systems. The scarcity of capsule-catalyzed annulation reactions (A+B→C) highlights the limitation of this approach—while co-encapsulation can give significant acceleration, product inhibition frequently halts turnover. In this talk, two novel and distinct methods for realizing capsule-catalyzed annulation processes will be described, both involving the ...

Time-of-flight imaging and LIDAR systems enable 3D scene acquisition at long range using active illumination. This is useful for autonomous driving, robotic vision, human-computer interaction and many other applications. The technological requirements on these imaging systems are extreme: individual photon events need to be recorded and time-stamped at a picosecond timescale, which is facilitated by ...

I will discuss some recent results — numerical and experimental — on the nature of drift-wave turbulence in MAST, obtained in the doctoral theses of my students Ferdinand van Wyk [1,4], Michael J. Fox [2] and Greg Colyer [3]. At ion scales, in the presence of flow shear, we find numerically a type of transition ...

Abstract: As a snow scientist, the realism of snow deformation in the Disney movie Frozen was a great source of wonder. Behind the magic scenes, UCLA / Disney mathematicians and computer scientists developed a snow model called "Matterhorn" based on the hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian Material Point Method (MPM) with a simplified snow mechanical model. I was ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Unified modeling of snow and avalanche mechanics using the material point method""

What do active ceramics and soft structures have in common? Two seemingly distinct systems serve to illustrate the power of structural transformations, and the challenges involved in modeling those across scales. Ferroelectric ceramics are key to most sensor and actuator technologies, owing to their electro-mechanical coupling: they deform under applied electric fields, and they produce ...

With a foundation in chemical synthesis, the laboratory of Christian Olsen explores the function of small molecules, peptides, peptidomimetics, and proteins in biological systems. They are focusing on peptidomimetic secondary structures with potential as antimicrobial agents, as non-proteinogenic ligands for disruption of protein–protein interactions, and for multivalent display. They are also exploring naturally occurring macrocyclic ... Read more about "Chemical tools for investigating histone deacetylase (HDAC) enzymes"
