Russ Werneth of NASA (12-08-20)

Dear Faculty and Students,

ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) is privileged to host Russ Werneth on campus Tuesday December 9th. He will be speaking in the TLC at 7:00pm. He is the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Outreach Specialist for NASA. We know that it is right before finals, but this was the only time we were able to book him, and we are excited to have him here.

He will be talking about the Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Missions (when they repair and improve the telescope) , and the tools they used to train astronauts for those missions. Russ is a very knowledgeable on these topics and a great speaker. So, we are looking forward to an engaging talk which will interest all science faculty and students. After the talk, he will answer questions.

We are look forward to hearing him and we hope you will join us. Take a short break from studying to hear and amazing speaker Tuesday at 7:00 in the TLC.

Registration Reminder (11-07-08)

A reminder now that registration season is open: you must meet with your advisor before your schedule will be approved. At that meeting, you must bring an up-to-date status sheet, which your advisor will sign and copy.

I suggest that you meet soon with your advisor as many students wait until the last day. When this happens, it is not possible for us (faculty) to process all the status sheets and some students run the risk of losing their schedules.

ACM Speaker: Dr. Anderson THIS Wednesday (10-8-07)

Good Evening, ACM!

I’m excited to inform you that we have a special guest speaker coming this Wednesday, October 10th at 7:30 PM in the TLC Auditorium! Bring your friends – it’s a free, open lecture for anyone interested!

Dr. Richard Anderson, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, will be presenting under the title, “Classroom Presenter: The History of a Tablet PC-Based Classroom Interaction System”.

To enhance your experience Wednesday, you should install the following software (but you don’t have to):


Here is the abstract if you want the low-down on the topic:

Classroom Presenter is a Tablet PC based classroom interaction system that has been under development at University of Washington since 2002. There are two key ideas associated with the system: integrating digital ink with electronic slides to increase the instructor's flexibility while lecturing, and giving students a mechanism to submit content to the instructor that can be then incorporated into the classroom discussion.

This talk will give an overview of the system, describing its history and how it evolved from a tool to support distance learning to a classroom interaction system. The talk will also cover a set of lessons about using the Tablet PC in the classroom, including a discussion of successful and unsuccessful features of the system.

Additional information about Classroom Presenter is available at:

Richard Anderson is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. He graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics from Reed College in 1981, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1985. He joined the University of Washington in 1986, after a one-year Postdoc at the Mathematical Science Research Institute in Berkeley, CA. In 1987 he received an NSF Presidential Young Investigator award. He spent the 1993-1994 academic year as a visiting professor at the Indian Institute of Science, in Bangalore, India, and the 2001-2002 academic year as a visiting researcher in the Learning Sciences and Technology group at Microsoft Research. While at Microsoft, he started the development of Classroom Presenter, a tool for delivering presentations from the Tablet PC, and continued leading the project on his return to University of Washington. He was the 2007 recipient of the University of Washington, College of Engineering Faculty Innovator for Teaching Award.

I hope you and your friends can join us on Wednesday!

Software Defined Radio: The Future of Radio (4-17-07)

Dr. Sven G. Bilén
Assoc. Professor of Electrical Engineering and Engineering Design
The Pennsylvania State University

Software-defined radio (SDR) is an emerging technology that promises to have a significant impact within the communications and consumer products industries, as well as government. In an SDR system, functions that were formerly carried out solely in hardware (i.e., generation of transmitted signal, tuning, demodulation of received signal) are performed in software, generally via FPGAs and DSP chips. This makes them extremely flexible in that one system can become any of a variety of radio transceivers.

This talk will overview SDR systems and discuss some of the applications for which they are being developed. The promise of SDR as a platform for cognitive radio will also be discussed.

The talk will be Thursday, 19 April at 4PM in Hoyt Hall Room 113.
