Our AIR@NE project has completed its summer professional development institute for Cohort 3 of K-8 school teachers in Nebraska. See https://scimath.unl.edu/airne/

Two papers of ours, with former post-doctoral researcher Markeya Peteranetz, and current graduate student Patrick Morrow, have been accepted to SIGCSE’2020, to be presented in March, 2020, in Portland, OR. The paper titles are: “Development and Validation of the Computational Thinking Concepts and Skills Test”, and “A Multi-level Analysis of the Relationship between Instructional Practices and Retention in Computer Science”.

Our paper, in collaboration with researchers from Oberlin College (Prof. Adam Eck) and University of Georgia (Prof. Prashant Doshi), has been accepted to AAAI’2020, to be presented in New York, NY, in February. The paper title is: Scalable Decision-Theoretic Planning in Open and Typed Multiagent Systems.

Together with Professor Liz Lorang, and doctoral students Yi Liu and Mike Pack, our team successfully concluded our project with the Library of Congress on investigating machine learning and image processing research to improve digital library.

Together with collaborators Professor Adam Eck (Oberlin College) and Professor Prashant Doshi (Univ. of Georgia), we recently received funding from NSF IIS Robust Intelligence program to do Multiagent Systems research in decentralized planning in complex and open environments.
