The HW/SW Interface Seminar Series: Jointly sponsored by Engineering and Computer Science

Monday, October 23, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Natalie Enright Jerger, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, will present a talk: "Hardware-Software Co-design for Approximate Computing". As Moore’s Law continues in the post-Dennard scaling era, architects and programmers must consider energy efficiency even more carefully as part of their designs. One promising approach to boost both energy efficiency and performance is approximate computing.

Condensed Matter & Biophysics Seminar: Ian Wong, Brown Unviersity

Thursday, October 26, 2017 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Beyond 2D: Self-Organizing Patterns in Nanomaterials and Cancer The emergence of complex behaviors from interacting "building blocks" is a fundamental theme in soft matter and living systems. In this seminar, I will present recent results from my group exploring self-organization in the context of 2D nanomaterials, biologically derived polyelectrolytes, and cancer cells. First, we utilize mechanical deformations to wrinkle and crumple graphene oxide membranes into hierarchical architectures.
