Speaker J. Garrett Morris Abstract Functional programming languages assume that generic types—in the FP parlance, type constructors—are total. Yet functional programmers know better: counterexamples range from container types that make limiting assumptions about their contents (e.g., requiring computable equality or ordering functions) to type families with defining equations only over certain choices of arguments. This gap makes programs harder to write and more prone to error: more pron...

The Computer Science Graduate Student Association invites four graduate students who have had great success in applying and getting offers from top-tier companies/labs to talk about their experiences and offer advice on how to increase your chances! In this panel discussion, we hope to disseminate information on common pitfalls, tricks, and opportunities that one encounters when looking for jobs or funding. There will be plenty of time for Q & A.

Speaker Rahul Singh Abstract Finding cures for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) is one of the most complex and crucial endeavors in modern science. This class of diseases encompasses a number of infection categories including helminth infections, protozoan infections, bacterial infections, and viral infections. Cumulatively, these diseases impact a significant fraction of the world’s population and various studies have indicated NTDs to be the prime factors depriving the affected people...

Speaker Alan Mislove Abstract The enormous financial success of online advertising platforms is partially due to the precise targeting and delivery features they offer. These platforms routinely claim to be able to identify which platform users are most likely to meet advertisers’ objectives, and steer ads towards those users via their ad delivery algorithms. This is typically accomplished by estimating the “relevance” of ads to users, but raises a number of concerns about bias, discrimin...

Keynote Speaker: Bijaya Adhikari Title: Risk Aware Temporal Cascade Reconstruction To Detect Asymptotic Cases  Abstract: For many infections, asymptomatic cases present a major obstacle to obtaining a precise understanding of infection-spread. We show that the key to detecting asymptomatic cases well is taking into account both individual risk as well as the likelihood of disease-flow along edges. Most related research has ignored the interplay between these dual aspects influencing dise...
