Faculty Presentation


Ted Pedersen, professor, Department of Computer Science, was an invited participant in the Creative Futures workshop and the Crazy Futures III workshop, both held in the Danube Delta, Romania, in August. His talk for the Crazy Futures III workshop was entitled "The horizon isn't found in a dictionary : Identifying emerging word senses and identities in raw text." Prior to that talk, he worked with a team of Romanian students and faculty to envision possible futures for the mining industry in that country as a part of the Creative Futures workshop.

Doug Dunham Paper Presentations Summer 2015


Douglas Dunham, professor, Department of Computer Science, gave talks at three conferences this summer. Click on links to papers to view artwork.

The first paper, "Patterns on Triply Periodic Polyhedra," was presented at the joint 2015 International Meeting of the American Mathematical Society, the European Mathematical Society, and the Sociedade Portugusa de Matematica.

The second paper with John Shier, "Fractal Wallpaper Patterns," was presented at the Bridges 2015 Conference, Baltimore, Md., in July and appears in the conference proceedings.

The third paper, "Artistic Patterns on Triply Periodic Polyhedra," was presented at MathFest 2015, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Mathematical Association of America, Washington, D.C., in August. In addition, three mathematical models designed by Dunham: "The {3,12} Polyhedron Decorated with a Fractal Circle Pattern," "Angels and Devils on a {4,5} Polyhedron," and "Butterflies on a {3,8} Polyhedron" were selected for display at the Bridges Art Exhibit. The first two of those models were also selected for display at the "Connections Between Mathematics and Art (Juried Exhibition)" at Towson University Center for the Arts, June 27- July 25, and at the Art Exhibit at MathFest.
