All staff members are encouraged to attend a Campus Currents meeting to gain and share information useful for engaging current students, recruiting new students, and connecting with alumni and friends of the college. These meetings also give staff members opportunities to discuss and provide feedback on broader college issues. Campus Currents meetings are repeated so offices can remain open while staff rotate attendance. These meetings are 9-10 a.m. and again 2-3 p.m. each day they are held. Participants suggest agenda items in advance, and meetings are held only when an agenda is created approximately two weeks in advance.

11:10 am SIG Talk "Video Manipulation Techniques for the Protection of Privacy in Remote Communication" West Science
Ross Sowell, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, will speak on how systems that give control of a mobile robot to a remote user raise privacy concerns about what the remote user can see and do through the robot. His recent work aims to preserve some of that privacy by manipulating the video data that the remote user sees. In this talk, Sowell will discuss the effectiveness of different video manipulation techniques for ensuring different types of privacy without diminishing the task performance of the user.
