Plenary - Opening Session. DR. PAMELA MCCAULEY Innovation Nation: The Critical Impact of Innovation
Welcome from Conference Chair
Plenary - Pamela McCauley 
In this dynamic keynote address, Dr. Pamela McCauley discusses the impact of innovation on individuals, nations, and the global society. She highlights her State Department HIV/AIDS Health Care Service Delivery work as an application example of the critical impact of science and technology innovation. Intertwined in her talk, Dr. McCauley highlights the crucial component of diversity and why successful innovation is dependent on all-inclusive collaboration. She shares high and lows of her own career as well as research-based practical strategies for individuals and organizations to propel their actions into useful products and services, both globally and collaboratively. 

Dr. Pamela McCauley is an ergonomics and biomechanics expert, a dynamic keynote speaker, a popular author, and an award-winning professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems at the University of Central Florida where she serves as Director of the Ergonomics Laboratory.

Dr. McCauley is currently on assignment with the U.S. Department of State in her role as a Jefferson Science Fellow. The Jefferson Science Fellowship program serves as an innovative model for engaging the American academic science and engineering communities in U.S. foreign policy. Dr. McCauley is involved in technology assessment and policy, researching the globally critical Ergonomics of Ebola, HIV and Other Infectious Diseases for Healthcare Workers.

She is the author of over 80 technical papers, book chapters, conference proceedings and the internationally best-selling ergonomics textbook; Ergonomics: Foundational Principles, Applications, and Technologies. Many of her leadership, diversity, innovation and STEM education related talks draw from her research-based book Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration and Strategies for Women as well as her personal story; Winners Don't Quit . . . Today They Call Me Doctor.

Student Modeling Day
Modeling Day- undergraduates and graduates will work in teams to understand an underlying model and its behavior, simulate a range of conditions, write and test the computer codes (using Python programming language) that are needed to solve real-world problems, improve the user interface to the code, and validate code against real data or more sophisticated models.

Maximum capacity: 45. Sign-ups are strongly encouraged

Plenary Session - DR. HELEN TURNER 'A'ohe pau ka 'ike i ka hālau ho'okahi: education at the interface of science, culture and privilege in Hawai'i

Pacific islands offer the world stunning biodiversity, millennia-old models for sustainability, and uniquely rich indigenous cultures. These ‘paradoxical paradises’ are also globally-relevant sentinel locations for the ravages of climate change, food insecurity, health inequity, wealth gaps, migration and erosion of indigenous culture. Science and technology offer important components of the solutions to these problems, particularly as the era of ‘big data’ arrives. However, data science has the potential to become the latest in a series of colonizing Western scientific paradigms from which Pacific indigenous peoples are largely disenfranchised. Tensions between science and culture are an emerging threat to health, sustainability and prosperity in the Pacific. This presentation discusses innovative data science research projects and educational approaches that embody principles of democratization (an inclusive STEM pipeline that transcends barriers of privilege),  decolonization (inculturation of indigenous knowledge within a Western scientific paradigm), and (re)-discovery (export of Pacific-based models to address global challenges). Theolelo no’eau of the title tells us  that ‘not all knowledge is learned in the same school’. A discussion will be offered of gaps in the Pacific educational ecosystem for science and technology, and the necessary fusion of science and culture in STEM educational approaches.
