    How scientists are redefining scientific performance
    Raquell Holmes, founder and director, improvscience,
    Why are scientists creating new, experimental social spaces in which to talk about and do science: hacker-spaces, DIY labs, Dance your Ph.D., science communication challenges, free access publications, and massive collaborations? How do we understand the emergence of these sociocultural events and norms? What do they have to do with the daily activities of research, design and discovery? This talk introduces a developing community of researchers, activists, and artists (STEM students and professionals) who are actively exploring the relevance of performance and performing arts to STEM fields. We see in their work the development of STEM culture as humanistic, collaborative, inclusive, highly innovative fields of practice.

    Thinking Differently About Risk: New Approaches to Connecting Evidence to Decisions
    Andrew Maynard, NSF International Chair of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and Director of the University of Michigan Risk Science Center
    Andrew Maynard is the NSF International Chair of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and Director of the University of Michigan Risk Science Center. As well as leading one of the top environmental health science departments in the United States, he has been instrumental in developing a unique center focused on making the science behind human health risks accessible to consumers ands decision makers across multiple sectors. Maynards research and professional activities focus primarily on the responsible development and use of emerging technologies most notably nanotechnology and synthetic biology. Here, he has published widely, has testified before congressional committees, has served on National Academy panels and is a member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Nanotechnology. He also writes a regular column for the journal Nature Nanotechnology on nanotechnology and responsible innovation. In addition, Maynard teaches risk assessment, science communication, environmental health policy, and entrepreneurial ethics, and lectures widely on technology innovation and responsible development. He is also a well-known science communicator, and works closely with and through conventional and new media to connect with audiences around the world on technology innovation and the science or risk.

    Decision making in energy systems
    Nathan Johnson, Assistant Professor, Department of Engineering and Computing Systems, Arizona State University
    The landscape of the energy industry is rapidly changing--growing use of renewables, societal shift towards low-carbon energy, policy and regulatory change, technological innovation--and forces engineers, policy makers, and business people to address new and increasingly complex energy-related challenges. Our everyday decision making tools and processes must be updated to meet this challenge. This talk will first discuss the complex issues underlying energy system design and control by characterizing the interactions between technical, environmental, and human systems that affect energy supply and use. A generalizeable mathematical and computational framework will then be discussed for energy system modeling, and a series of examples will be provided from micro-grids, campus power grids, and building energy systems.

    Join the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes for a quick and edifying lunchtime presentation, discussion and pizza. Please RSVP to cspo@asu.edu
