Events for January 31, 2017

  • USC Stem Cell Seminar: Arthur Lander, University of California, Irvine

    Tue, Jan 31, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Biomedical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Arthur Lander, University of California, Irvine

    Talk Title: Stem cells, lineages and the logic of proliferative control

    Series: Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC Distinguished Speakers Series

    Abstract: Producing organs and tissues of precisely specified sizes is one of the greatest engineering challenges that developing organisms face. Whether achieving homeostasis of continuously-renewing epithelia, or building non-renewing organs such as brain and bone, the key to achieving speed, stability and set-point control is feedback regulation of how cells progress through lineage stages. I will discuss the evidence, both experimental and theoretical, in support of this claim, as well as its implications for how we understand stem cells and the lineages to which they give rise.

  • CS Colloquium: Barath Raghavan (UC Berkeley) -Frontier Networks: Context, Challenges, and Connectivity

    Tue, Jan 31, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:20 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Barath Raghavan, UC Berkeley

    Talk Title: Frontier Networks: Context, Challenges, and Connectivity

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Computer Science Research Colloquium.

    In this talk, I discuss Frontier Networks -- networks that expand Internet access to disconnected regions -- and their role in scaling Internet access to the half of the global population that remains offline. I describe how a deep understanding of the context and challenges reveals new approaches to building more reliable, cost-effective, and manageable Frontier Networks. I describe a project I led to build such a network in a previously-disconnected region of Mendocino County, CA, the lessons it taught us about network design and operation, and the systems we built to address the needs that were unmet. I then describe three subsequent challenges -- bootstrapping, planning, and routing -- and describe ongoing projects to address them.

    Biography: Barath Raghavan is a senior researcher at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, CA. His research interests include networked systems, security and applied cryptography, ICTD, and sustainable computing. His work spans a wide range of topics including congestion control, routing security, Internet architecture, software-defined networking, rural Internet access, network function virtualization, network troubleshooting and testing, anonymity systems, and computing for sustainable agriculture. He received his PhD from UC San Diego in 2009 and his BS from UC Berkeley in 2002. He has received a number of paper awards including from ACM SIGCOMM and ACM DEV.

  • Graduate Student Viterbi Industry Networking Event (VINE)

    Tue, Jan 31, 2017 @ 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Receptions & Special Events


    The Graduate Viterbi Industry Networking Event (VINE) allows graduate Viterbi students to meet employers the evening before the Career Fair and allows students to practice their networking skills by engaging with a wide variety of engineering companies in a professional networking environment.

    VINE follows the format of a typical business networking event, complete with beverages and light appetizers. The event allows employers to interact with students in a more intimate setting compared to the Career Fair which typically has over 3,000 students in attendance.

    Audiences: All Viterbi Graduate

    Interested in earning your MS from Viterbi? How about starting a MS degree during your senior year? The Viterbi Graduate Admission team is hosting a Progressive Degree information session!

    What are the details?
    When: Tuesday, January 31
    Where: RTH 211

    Who should attend?
    All undergraduate students thinking about pursuing a MS degree through USC.

    What is the Progressive Degree Program?
    The Progressive Degree Program (PDP) gives continuing USC undergraduates another path to earning a Master's degree from USC. The main advantages to a Progressive Degree are:
    1) Start graduate-level classes during your senior year
    2) Reduce the units required for a Master's Degree

    Where can you learn more?
    More Progressive Degree information may be found by attending our information session and visiting USC Viterbi School of Engineering
