Personal Archiving Workshop

Library Room 204

Our personal and professional records are primarily digital, and the complexity of these growing collections in every sphere of our lives cannot be overstated. The Personal Digital Archiving workshop will address the need for digital preservation, to ensure longterm access to these personal collections and archives. The array of digital formats that comprise any collection is ever expanding and shifting, and this workshop will offer some helpful tips and guidance to make it all more manageable.

Presented by Leah Loscutoff, Archivist & Special Collections Librarian

CS Seminar: Dr Iulian Neamtiu (NJIT) - Improving Android's Reliability and Security

Fielding Room, Howe Building


Android is the dominant mobile platform worldwide.  My group has developed a variety of analyses aimed at improving Android's reliability and security. First, we will show how "software repository mining" can reveal common classes of errors in mobile apps.  Second, we describe VALERA, a record-and-replay approach that helps developers or users with a variety of tasks, e.g., reproducing executions, finding and fixing concurrency bugs, and app profiling. Third, we present a static analysis that has found a new class of Android app errors we named "resume/restart errors". Finally, we show how static and dynamic techniques can be used to find and reduce the security risks posed by Android apps.


Iulian Neamtiu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2008, and between 2008-2015 he was an Assistant, then Associate Professor at the University of California, Riverside.  His research areas span programming languages, security, software engineering, and smartphones, with an overarching goal of making software and smartphones more secure, efficient, dependable, as well as easy to maintain and modify.  He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award, the UCR Regents' Fellowship award, as well as two Google Research Awards. He is part of the 10-year Cyber-Security Collaborative Research Alliance (CRA), a joint effort between the Army Research Laboratory and five universities, whose goal is to advance the theoretical foundations of cyber science in the context of Army networks.  His research has been funded by NSF, ARL, DARPA, Intel, and Google.

CCSE SEMINAR: Soundar Kumara "Graph Analytics – Community Detection in Complex Networks"

CCSE Lab / Babbio 514

Center for Complex Systems & Enterprises
Distinguished Lecture Series
Graph Analytics – Community Detection in Complex Networks
BY: Soundar Kumara
Professor of Computer Science and Engineering
The Pennsylvania State University
The prevalence of social networks and the evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) are contributing to the growth of complex networks. When these networks become large, pattern recognition is important for decision making. Clusters (communities) can be considered as the fundamental patterns (not building blocks) in networks. Graph analytics mainly focusses on detecting overlapping and non-overlapping clusters.  In this expository talk we will explore the nature of complex networks and in particular discuss the details of community detection algorithms. We will detail:  Label Propagation and Game Theory Based algorithms developed by us. We will demonstrate community detection with real world examples.
Dr. Kumara is Allen, E and Allen, M. Pearce Professor of Industrial Engineering at the PennsylvaniaStateUniversity.  He also holds joint appointments with Computer Science and Engineering, and an affiliate appointment with the School of Information Sciences and Technology. His research focus is on building Smart Manufacturing and Logistics Systems, Graph Analytics and Healthcare analytics.  He is an elected fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), the International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

Input Hedging, Output Hedging and Market Power

Babbio 430

Research Colloquium with Stevens Energy Seminar 

S. Abraham Ravid, Sy Syms Professor of Finance, Yeshiva University

Abstract:  We argue that commodity input hedging is different from commodity output hedging. We expect less commodity hedging in industries that produce commodities as outputs, as compared to industries that use commodities as inputs. Since market power can create adverse hedging incentives in output industries, we expect market power to exhibit a negative relation with commodity hedging in output industries, but not in input industries. We test these predictions on a sample of S&P500 firms from 2001 to 2005. Empirical results support both hypotheses. We distinguish our results regarding commodity hedging by illustrating that the “output” vs. “input” industry structures and market power hypotheses are not supported in placebo tests on currency hedging. Finally, our empirical framework, which differentiates between hedging in an input industry vs. hedging in an output industry, can also help reconcile some conflicting results in prior studies.

Biography:  Dr. S. Abraham (Avri) Ravid is a professor of Finance, Yeshiva University, New York. He holds a PhD and MS from Cornell University, Graduate School of Business and Public Administration. His BS is from Tel Aviv University – joint program statistics and economics with mathematical emphasis. Professor Ravid’s research interests include:  Corporate Finance- in particular Capital Structure, Debt features, Bankruptcy, Mergers and Contracts under asymmetric information; Interaction of Production and Financial Decisions; Applications of Corporate Finance and Microeconomic Theory to the entertainment and media industries and to government policies. Venture Capital and Entrepreneurship.

Leading Creative Collaborations – A Two-Day Workshop for Technical Professionals

Babbio 104, The Babbio Center

The School of Business at Stevens Institute of Technology emphasizes a tested brand of technical leadership development that puts you at the center of a dynamic, energized learning environment where you will find the keys to your own style of self-directed, empowered leadership. This approach is based on extensive research and work with dozens of companies that have demonstrated the value of learning leadership skills by actively putting them in practice. This workshop is intended for technical leaders who hold themselves accountable for continually increasing their own and others’ capacity for cross-company collaboration and rapid innovation. Our faculty experts will show you how to use tools that are readily applicable to your organizational challenges to learn how to stimulate creative thinking, make practical use of conflict, and build collaborative group structures and practices that people enjoy using. The workshop will feature extensive exercises in which you will work in small groups to master the techniques presented by faculty experts.  If you have responsibility for technical aspects of an organization that has R&D, engineering or computer-related technologies at the core, we will encourage you to think differently about  your responsibilities, the way you manage projects and teams, and how you can work with and inspire people in your organization to take on enterprise-level challenges.  In addition to the workshop, Stevens will host a professional networking event for participants to meet faculty, researchers, and senior administrators.
