Frontiers of Neurophysics, an exploration of the interface of physics and neuroscience.

Organizers: Alex Levine (UCLA)

This workshop, hosted by the Bhaumik Institute of Theoretical Physics and the UCLA Center for Biological Physics, will explore the emerging connections between physics and neuroscience as part of the UCLA Julian Schwinger Centennial Celebration. Topics include:

- Information theory and neural encoding of sensory data
- The application of the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems to neural networks
- The statistical physics of nonlinear actors on quenched random networks

UCLA Plasma Fest

Plasma Fest is a celebration of the outstanding breadth and depth of UCLA-based research related to the fourth state of matter known as plasma. This includes space and astrophysical plasmas, fusion energy, advanced accelerators and radiation sources, plasma-materials interactions, and space propulsion. Join us at our symposium, poster session, and discussions groups.

10 Big Questions

"10 Big Questions" is both an upper division undergraduate course open to all students and a series of public conversations available to the broader community. Each class will be organized around a single question designed to elicit interdisciplinary discussion amongst a panel of UCLA scholars, artists, scientists and researchers. It seeks to foster groundbreaking connections between the arts and other disciplines.

Revisiting the Teaching Evaluation: Exploring Practical Ways for the Review Process to Better Assess and Reward Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation

The goal of this event is to improve undergraduate education by assessing ways to make the teaching review process result in a more representative evaluation of teaching effectiveness and efforts to improve instruction. This event is aimed at bringing together those faculty invested in reconsidering and improving the teaching evaluation process on campus.
