CRC APPLICATION- FINAL REMINDER! ACA YEAR 20-21

I hope that everyone has had a safe and wonderful summer! I look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall in whatever form our “return” takes!  I also wanted to send a final reminder regarding the CRC fellowship application due August 03, 2020.  Description of fellowship and application is below,  If you have questions, please contact Michael Jenson @ Michael.jenson@ucdenver.edu .

The CRC interdisciplinary fellowship will support several cross-disciplinary faculty for the 2020 – 2021 academic year.  Successful applicants will form a collaborative group for a 12 month fellowship (August 2020 to August 2021) that draws from various disciplines across the campus.   Each fellow will receive $5000 in faculty development funding to work on proposals for research grants, scholarly publications or creative endeavors such as exhibitions, texts, or similar.  The fellowship supports the creation of cross disciplinary faculty teams that define a research project spanning two or more disciplines (from at least two different colleges) that can potentially submit 3 proposals to external funding agencies or create several scholarly articles or exhibitions during the fellowshipyear.  Funds can be used as summer salary, for travel, towards course buyouts, or other research needs.   In addition, each fellow will give a talk about their research at a brown bag lecture series for faculty and students sometime within the fellowship year. CRC fellow’s talks provide a venue to learn about research being undertaken in other disciplines as well as serving as a platform to connect individuals from across the campus in ways that impact and engage the greater academic community to foster a stronger research identity for the campus.

New this year: To assist the faculty fellows in the promotion of their research, the Graduate School is sponsoring (up to) two student research fellowships for UC Denver (downtown campus) graduate students (one research assistant per CRC research team) to assist the CRC Fellows in the development of their research strategies, methods, and projects.  Prospective RA’s should be recruited by each CRC applicant team utilizing the general criteria that the prospective student RA should be pursuing a PhD (preferred) or Masters level study (minimum) within a relevant discipline to the research project.  Each applicant team will outline the collaborative role of the RA, the budgetary justification for their efforts, supervisory structure/schedule, and educational merit for the position.  Please note:  applying for the RA position is not required and is at the discretion of each collaborative team.

CRC fellows talk 04 2019-2020/ (1st ZOOM edition!)

Spring 2020 CRC FELLOW’S TALK (Part 2):

ZOOM EDITION:

If interested in attending please contact Michael Jenson at: michael.jenson@ucdenver.edu and a Zoom link will be forwarded.

04/22/20,  from 11:30 AM to 1PM, five of our CRC fellows will be presenting their team project and individual research in the second of two talks entitled:

Formulation, Development, and Evaluation of Data-driven Defensive Cyber deception against Influence Campaigns in Online Social Networks” –Part 02: 04.22.20.  

Haadi Jafarian, assistant professor/Department of Computer Science & Engineering/CU Denver./Farnoush Banaei-Kashani/assistant professor/Department of Computer Science & Engineering at CU Denver./Ersin Dincelli, Assistant Professor of Information Systems/Business School/CU Denver /Keith Guzik, Associate Professor of Sociology at CU Denver/Ashis Biswas Assistant Professor/Department of Computer Science & Engineering/CU Denver

In our first talk, we described a proactive solution based on the notion of defensive cyber deception to identify and characterize malicious campaigns on online social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In this second talk, we will introduce our pilot study that uses cyber deception to address the challenging problem of detecting “cyborgs” (half-real, half-automated) accounts on Instagram. These half-real, half-automated accounts are hard to detect by mere observation of their activities because their profiles look real, and their automated nature is masqueraded among the actions of the account owner. This talk discusses how we are generating a network of decoy accounts with believable and engaging profiles, personalities, and interests to attract and thus identify cyborg accounts. The goal of this pilot is to ensure the feasibility, quantify the effectiveness, and understand the challenges in ealizing our deception-based approach for detecting different types of attacks on OSNs.

NOBEL @ NOON!

This is a great series that has CUDenver faculty experts present and discuss the most recent Nobel prize winners and the significance of their work leading to their reception of the prize. Next two upcoming lectures are listed below:
