|8:00 am-5:00 pm||Honor Jazz Weekend Festival WESTBROOK MUSIC BUILDING|
Located in Kimball Recital Hall and Westbrook Music Building. The Honor Jazz Weekend is designed to give outstanding high school musicians a comprehensive playing and learning experience. Festival participants are chosen through a recorded audition. Students attending the festival are involved in small jazz combos as well as a large jazz ensemble. Students also participate in master classes with University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty and featured guests, learn about jazz history, composition, and improvisation.
The featured ensemble, The Matt Wilson Quartet, will work with the Honor Jazz Weekend participants in masterclasses and rehearsals.
|8:30 am-10:00 am||Grand Rounds Presentation UNIVERSITY HEALTH CENTER|
Counseling and Psychological Services at the University Health Center hosts an on-going series of Grand Rounds presentations. This series is for all interested UNL faculty, staff and students as well as mental health professionals.
|10:00 am-12:00 pm||UNL Libraries Visiting Scholar, G. Sayeed Choudhury NEBRASKA UNION|
G. Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Library Digital Programs and Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center at the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University, will give the presentation, “The Data Conservancy: A Blueprint for Research Libraries in the Data Age” on March 26, at 10 am in the Georgian Room of the Nebraska Union on City Campus.
Choudhury will discuss The Data Conservancy (DC), which is one of two awards through the National Science Foundation (NSF)'s DataNet program. The Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University is the lead organization for the DC and Choudhury serves as its principal investigator. He will talk about the DC’s common vision: Data curation is a means to collect, organize, validate and preserve data so that scientists can find new ways to address the grand research challenges that face society and the prototype tools and resources developed by the Sheridan Libraries for data curation. Choudhury will discuss the blueprint being developed by the DC for research libraries to support new forms of data-driven science.
G. Sayeed Choudhury is also the Director of Operations for the Institute of Data Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES) based at Johns Hopkins. He is also a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins, a Research Fellow at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Senior Presidential Fellow with the Council on Library and Information Resources.

|2:30 pm||Pierson Lecture by Dr. Wei Qiao SCOTT ENGINEERING CENTER LINK|
NSF 2010 CAREER Award recipient Wei Qiao will discuss New Developments in Control and Optimization for Electric Energy Security and Sustainability, March 26 at 2:30 p.m. in Room N129 of the Scott Engineering Center. The talk is free and is part of the Pierson Lecture Series of Graduate Student Seminars with the UNL Department of Mechanical Engineering. According to Qiao, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at UNL, electric energy requires 40 percent of the total U.S. energy consumption, and this rate is still gradually growing. With new constraints from environmental and economic factors including fossil fuel supply uncertainties, innovative solutions are needed. Qiao will present new developments in control and optimization to improve electric energy security and sustainability, with case studies including mechanical speed sensorless optimal control for wind generators; missing-sensor-fault-tolerant control for flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) devices; and optimal wide-area coordinating control for electric power systems.
