Bijou Film Forum presents screenings and discussions of acclaimed and provocative films that seek to engage community members and UI students across all disciplines and fields of study through the art of film.
The Listeners follows a cadre of new volunteer trainees in crisis and suicide prevention as they learn to answer suicide hotlines. Through their eyes—and more importantly, their ears—the film examines mental health and suicide prevention strategies, volunteerism, and the life-saving power of empathy.
Post-screening discussion with director/producer Bob Hurst.

For much of the history of ceramics, the primary use of the clay medium was in functional ware, usually classified as pottery. While sculptural forms made of clay were plentiful, such works were thought of as sculpture, and not as ceramic art, as it is now defined. Once industrialization made mass production of functional ware possible and common, ceramic artists were free to explore the expressive potential of their medium. This new latitude created a dialogue on the categorization of craft versus fine art; ceramic artists could choose a traditional route and produce forms for everyday use, or they could stretch the possibilities of work with clay as an artistic and academic discipline. The objects in Clay Revisited: Traditions in Shards demonstrate a wide variety of forms and techniques by artists who work in ceramic media, as they move with ease throughout the broad range of traditional, painterly, and sculptural aspects afforded by the materials and methods at hand.

Are you an undergraduate or graduate student interested in a total immersion summer language program, all expenses paid? Please join International Programs for two events to discuss the process of applying for a Critical Language Scholarship.
The Critical Language Scholarship Program (CLS) provides fully-funded group-based intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment activities overseas each summer for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students. The CLS Program is part of a U.S. government effort to expand dramatically the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages. The fourteen CLS languages are: Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Swahili, Turkish, and Urdu. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers. Students of diverse disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply.
Tuesday, October 25, 5:00-6:30 p.m.
Room 315 Phillips Hall
Visiting CLS Program Officer Nellie Manis from Washington, D.C. will discuss the requirements and application process, and a previous CLS winner from the UI will also be speaking.

From 1991 to 1995 at the U.S. Mission to the UN in Geneva, Lange managed humanitarian and refugee assistance channeled through international organizations. He also had tours of duty in the State Department Bureaus of African Affairs, Western Hemisphere Affairs and Management in Washington and at U.S. Embassies in Togo, France and Mexico. The United Nations Foundation was launched in 1998 with a $1 billion gift from Ted Turner to support the United Nations causes. The United Nations Foundation links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women's empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations. Ambassador Lange’s visit to Iowa is sponsored by the Iowa United Nations Association, the state affiliate of the United Nations Association of the USA, a program of the United Nations Foundation.
Ambassador John E. Lange (Ret.) serves as the primary focal point for the UN Foundation’s global health diplomacy activities. Prior to joining the Foundation in July 2013, Lange spent four years at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation working with African governments to improve public health. He has served as co-chair of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Polio Partners Group since its launch in April 2012. Ambassador Lange had a 28-year career in the Foreign Service at the U.S. Department of State, including service as Special Representative on Avian and Pandemic Influenza; Deputy Inspector General; Deputy U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator at the inception of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief; and Associate Dean at the Foreign Service Institute. He was Ambassador to Botswana from 1999 to 2002 and simultaneously served as Special Representative to the Southern African Development Community.Location: Congregational United Church of Christ
In order to maximize the benefits of HPC for economic competitiveness and scientific discovery, the United States Government must create a coordinated Federal strategy in HPC research, development, and deployment. Investment in HPC has contributed substantially to national economic prosperity and rapidly accelerated scientific discovery. Creating and deploying technology at the leading edge is vital to advancing my Administration's priorities and spurring innovation. Accordingly, this order establishes the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI).
University of Iowa is participating in this seminar series via BlueJeans connection in the newly constructed Iowa Informatics Initiative Space in Public Health Building (CPHB)
The next talk is by Barry Schneider from ACM/NIST.
Virtually every scientific discipline has been impacted by the revolution of the digital age. Modeling and simulation and the extraction of useful information from increasingly large data sets have become the sine qua non for progress in science and engineering (S&E). Taking a broad view, it is obvious that without computation fields such as cosmology, general relativity, materials science(MD,MGI), nuclear, plasma, condensed matter and high energy physics (QCD) would be severely and negatively impacted. Other fields, such as atomic and molecular physics rely on computation to produce accurate atomic data on fundamental atomic and molecular properties as well as collision and photonic cross sections required for many practical applications. This is not only important in catalyzing new discovery but also for technological advancement. In addition, the size of the data sets that aerated being generated from instruments such as telescopes, particle accelerators and sensors are becoming so large thatit is impossible to extract any really meaningful results without large-scale computation and data analysis. I use the term cyberscience to denote this new approach to discovery in S&E. However, it is also the case that without accompanying developments in cyberinfrastucture ( hardware, software, networking ) this revolution would not have been possible.
In this talk I will provide an overview of some of the interesting developments that have been happening in CS and CI over the past few decades and speculate a bit on where things might be headed in the next decade as we face the challenges of Moores’s law beginning to fail.
