ATE Events — September 2018


The NCL is a defensive and offensive puzzle-based, capture-the-flag style cybersecurity competition. Its virtual training ground helps high school and college students prepare and test themselves against cybersecurity challenges that they will likely face in the workforce. All participants play the games simultaneously during Preseason, Regular Season and Postseason. NCL allows players of all levels to enter. Between easy, medium and hard challenges, students have multiple opportunities to really shine in areas as they excel. Registration for the Fall Season is 8/27/18 – 9/28/18.

The growing prevalence of connected devices and their ability to provide increasing amounts of data to help propel Smart Cities excite the mind to future possibilities. Smart Cities, however, can also seem abstract and at times difficult to fully understand real-world implications. Narrowing down to just one area of Smart Cities, Smart Mobility, we can begin to see where the true benefit of the Internet of Things society in creating efficiencies in everyday activities. Hitachi’s Dr. Chetan Gupta will explain Smart Mobility and the application it can have for businesses to embrace technological advances to propel their future growth.

The conference is free and open to all Washington State faculty in the life sciences. 

In May, California became the first state to require new homes to include solar power. Unsurprisingly, the announcement of this path-breaking decision has been met with considerable interest and curiosity. This webinar will put the requirement into context by describing the California Energy Commission’s efforts over time to improve the energy efficiency of new homes by strengthening building codes and encouraging the installation of solar energy systems, which laid the groundwork for the recent solar requirement. The webinar will explain the requirement, how it will be implemented, and how other states might adopt similar policies. The webinar will also discuss California’s attempt to adopt a carbon metric in future cycles of the state’s building energy efficiency standards and the implications for buildings in the state. There will be an opportunity for audience questions. For a brief infographic describing California’s new residential building energy efficiency standards, see
