CST Colloquium: Alberto Pepe presents Data-driven, Interactive Scientific Articles in a Collaborative Environment with Authorea


Date: February 11th, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm  Location: Namm 928 Abstract: Most tools that scientists use for the preparation of scholarly manuscripts, such as Microsoft Word and LaTeX, function offline and do not account for the born-digital nature of research objects. Also, most authoring tools in use today are not designed for collaboration, and, as scientific

CST Colloquium: Bio-inspired Computation Approach for Tumor Growth with Spatial Randomness Analysis of Kidney Cancer Xenograft Pathology Slides


Date: March 10th, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm  Location: Namm 928 Speaker: Aydin Saribudak Abstract:  In our research, we analyze digitized images of Hematoxylin-Eosin (H&E) slides equipped with tumorous tissues from patient derived xenograft models to build our bio-inspired computation method, namely Personalized Relevance Parameterization of Spatial Randomness (PReP-SR). Applying spatial pattern analysis techniques of quadrat counts,

CST Colloquium: Ontology-based Classification and Faceted Search Interface for APIs


Date: April 7th, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm  Location: Namm 928 Speaker: Knarig Arabshian Abstract: This work introduces faceted service discovery. It uses the Programmable Web directory as its corpus of APIs and enhances the search to enable faceted search, given an OWL ontology. The ontology describes semantic features of the APIs. We have designed the API

CST Colloquium: Energy Management as a Service (EMaaS): Design, Analysis, and Realization


Speaker: Yu-Wen Chen, Ph.D., CST Abstract: Dr. Chen presents an introduction to smart grid and cloud computing as the foundation for the design of customer-oriented energy-efficient systems (EmaaS). These systems provide financial incentives to customers thus enhancing the renewable energy sources(solar, wind, electrical) integration with the smart grid community.
