The Krell University is now accepting applications for two prestigious Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration programs. The Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) and the Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA LRGF).
ASU will host a special guest invited by President Crow, Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute Cofounder and Chief Scientist on April 24–25. During his visit, Lovins will give two Global Futures Special Seminars on energy.
Refreshments will be served at both lectures.
Oil suppliers have more unsellable than unburnable oil; they are more at risk from competition than from climate regulation. Electricity suppliers too face a swarm of disruptors that will transform their business beyond recognition. As these two vast industries merge and as insurgents in both challenge incumbents, almost everything we thought we knew about energy is ripe for rapid and profound change.
Energy efficiency is traditionally viewed as a pile of separate technologies to be added in order of increasing cost. Yet designing buildings, vehicles, and factories instead as whole systems can save several-fold more energy at several-fold lower cost. Examples spanning all sectors and virtually all applications even show that such “integrative design” can often make savings cost less as their quantity grows. Countries still building much of their infrastructure can more easily build it right than fix it later, so integrative design offers an extraordinary opportunity to stretch capital budgets by leveraging enormous supply-side savings.
The ASASU Council of Presidents is accepting applications for student positions on many university boards and committees across all campuses.
Both undergraduate and graduate students from all ASU campuses are encouraged to apply. Supplemental application materials (résumé/unofficial transcripts) must be submitted to email@example.com.
There is a shortage of students able to serve on the University Hearing Board during the summer – if that interests you please consider applying.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled.
Learn how new research makes the time-consuming activity of fault-localization aids designers of complex Cyber-Physical Systems with doctoral researcher Niveditha Manjunath.
Invited Talk: Localizaing faults in Simulink models using STL

Fault-localization is a very tedious and time-consuming activity in the design of complex Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). The task requires expert knowledge of the system in order to discover the cause of the fault. In this talk, Manjunath presents a new procedure that aids designers in debugging Simulink hybrid system models, guided by Signal Temporal Logic (STL) specifications.
The proposed approach relies on three main components:
- A monitoring and a trace diagnostics procedure that checks if a tested behavior satisfies or violates an STL specification localize time segments and interfaces variables contributing to the property violations.
- A slicing procedure that maps these observable behavior segments to the internal states and transitions of the Simulink model
- A spectrum based fault-localization method that combines the previous analysis from multiple tests to identify the internal states and/or transitions that are the most likely to explain the fault.
About the speaker
Niveditha Manjunath is a doctoral candidate at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and is affiliated with the Vienna University of Technology. Her research interests are in fault-oriented V&V methods for CPS from concept to component design, and in particular in system diagnostics and fault localization. She is extending AMT monitoring tool with the system diagnostics capabilities.
She holds a master’s degree from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.

Commemorate National Recovery Month by participating in a day of awareness on Thursday, September 20, 2018.
Events will be held across campuses, with the culmination being a discussion about addiction and recovery, led by Kevin McCauley. Explore the intersection of adversity and intoxication and McCauley’s research-based approach to deepen notions of personal responsibility and increases mindfulness of structural violence that threatens it.
The event is open to everyone.
