Welcome to the new semester! Graduate Students: LD, Adam, Hari, Anish, Shilpa, Doug, Bin; Undergraduate Students: Greg, Xi, Maanas, Spencer!  We have active projects: the Survey Informatics project funded by NSF CRN, the IDEASPERE project funded by NSF SaTC, the Ad Hoc Team Formation project, the Spectral Metadata Project, and the new NSF IUSE project on computational creativity.  Let’s have a productive year.
