Flat-Panel Display Backplanes: Past, Present, and a Possible Future Option

Environment Events - 6 hours 34 min ago
Wednesday, February 17, 2016 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

John F. Wager, Michael and Judith Gaulke Endowed Chair
School of EECS, Oregon State University

An overview of flat-panel display backplanes is offered. This involves briefly reviewing the primary past (and present) technology, amorphous hydrogenated silicon (a-Si:H) thin-film transistors (TFTs). Next, a progress report on oxide TFTs is presented. It is argued that the pace of development of oxide TFTs warrants (arguably) their classification as a present-day backplane technology. Then, the pros and cons of oxide TFTs are compared to the other important present-day backplane technology, low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFTs. Finally, an assessment of the challenges and potential advantages of amorphous metal non-linear resistor (AMNR) thin-film diodes (TFDs), a possible future flat-panel display backplane option, is provided.

Trust: The Core Catalyst for Collaboration

Environment Events - 6 hours 34 min ago
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Leadership Academy Pillar: COLLABORATIVE

As a word, trust evokes powerful emotions in people, often stemming from a mixture of experience, societal standards, and individual risk sensitivities.  As a concept, trust has many colors and variations that are not well calibrated across individuals.  Despite this, trust is critical to positive human relationships and crucial to successful organizational endeavors.  In this workshop, we will point out the myths and truths associated with trust—a complex duality that provides a rich area for exploration!  Participation will dramatically increase one's awareness of how trust works in the real world, particularly in organizational (business) settings, and how the level of trust can impact probability of positive progress.

Center for Global Health Student Forum

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

"Food Security and Community Participation in La Paz, Bolivia" Jason Skipton, a second year student in the MPH International Health track, will share his experience in Bolivia conducting mixed methods research to investigate how a community garden in La Paz, Bolivia could improve food security and increase community participation.

La Paz, Bolivia is the highest capital city in the world at 12,000 feet above sea level. The growing conditions present a difficult challenge to grow community, create an urban agriculture movement, and ensure food security. The community garden is set on the side of a mountain where a landslide cleared out the neighborhood nearly 30 years ago, leaving a vacant lot once riddled with violent activities. Using surveys, focus groups, a dietary diversity questionnaire and participant observation, this research explores the relationships among community gardening, food security, and community participation.

US Forest Carbon Projects

Forestry Events - 6 hours 34 min ago
Thursday, March 10, 2016 10:00 AM - Friday, March 11, 2016 3:45 PM

The development of a US forest carbon project involves many of the same tools, data, and analytical processes as are needed in other complex forestry projects. These include a complete forest inventory, growth and yield models, volume and biomass equations, and the use of a harvest scheduling model. However, in the application of each of these items, there are subtle (or not so subtle) differences when the aim is the development of a carbon project.

In two days, this workshop will focus on forest inventory and modelling considerations specific to the development of a US forest carbon project. The approach taken will be to identify and discuss the needs of a hypothetical project, with consideration given to recommendations on tools to use and approaches to take. Particular points will be made in clarifying differences between the needs of a carbon project and those of a similar project that is focused on more traditional industrial forestry goals.

Attendees will gain insights into the process of developing a forest carbon project, with recommendations and specific suggestions on approach.
