Support for a two-day "Clean Air and Policy" Workshop initiated by faculty from both the Joint Research Institute in Science and Engineering by Peking University and UCLA, and the Center for Clean Air at UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IoES). The overarching goal of the workshop is to expand the scope of the 2014 JRI symposium by bringing in government officials and policymakers from both California and China to join JRI faculty and students to discuss public health and policy issues related to air pollution.
Support for inaugural symposium to showcase the diversity of the Institute for Quantitative & Computational Biosciences (QCB), drawing on the collaborative participation of the Institute for Biological Physics, the DOE Institute for Synthetic Genomics, the Bioinformatics Graduate Program, the California NanoSystems Institute, and the Clinical Translational Sciences Institute.
Symposium scheduled for February 3 - 5 open to UCLA faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students as a means to engage in a unique and innovative fashion with speakers. The 10th annual Symposium on Nanobiotechnology will cover new materials for drug delivery and cellular interactions, sensors and diagnostics, and new imaging techniques, as well as biological interactions such as immunological responses and in vivo targeting abilities.More information is available on the event website.
This awards provides funding to host the 23rd annual Joint Symposium in Neural Computation (JSNC) at UCLA. JSNC is a regional meeting of Southern California computational neuroscience researchers (http://inc.ucsd.edu/ann-symp.html) that was founded by Terry Sejnowski of the Salk Institute.
The University of California System-Wide Bioengineering Symposium will be held at UCLA from June 28-30th, 2017 and will foster an interdisciplinary environment for the next generation of engineers, scientists, and clinicians to translate advances in bioengineering research to the clini, and to industry, or to address health disparity issues critical to society.
Archaeology increasingly uses three-dimensional recordings of excavations, buildings and landscapes as well as virtual reality models to reconstruct developments over time. With the increasing power and popularity of 3DVR gaming systems, immersive environments become viable stages in which archaeological and historical theories can be tested. For academic purposes, it is extremely important to clarify how much of an immersive environment is based on actual data and what the level of speculation is used for the reconstruction of each detail and phase.
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.
"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.
