A Computer Science Colloquium will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. Thursday,

in Computer Science, will present "Post Information Warfare Data
With the increasing popularity of the Internet, worldwide information
sharing becomes a common practice. It also opens channels for intruders to
access and possibly damage sensitive information. An attack on an
organization's information base through electronic media is called
Information Warfare. Although there are several techniques available to
prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data, these preventive measures
are not always successful. It is extremely hard, although not impossible,
to build systems that share information over electronic networks and still
remain invulnerable to attackers. Hackers are always in search of new ways
to prevail over the system security.
It is crucial to recover the database as soon as an attack is detected;
otherwise, the damage may spread and corrupt other important data through
benign users. For example, a user may use the value of a corrupt data and
update several other uncorrupt data based on the value read. This can have
a cascading effect over time. In this presentation, the presenter will
explain how to make an exact assessment of the damaged data after an
is detected, and recover the affected data to consistent states in
real-time. This approach also significantly minimizes the system halt time
during the recovery process.

APPLICATIONS DUE FOR 1998-99 DEVELOPMENTAL LEAVES
Eligible faculty and staff who wish to apply for developmental leave
projects during academic year 1998-99 may submit proposals to the faculty
member's chair and dean or the staff member's administrative supervisor
according to the announced schedule. After review, recommendations and
prioritizing at the college and/or administrative supervisory level, all
proposals will then be forwarded to the Office of the Vice President for
Academic Affairs on or before Nov. 17 for review by Dr. Strathe. Following
presidential approval, applicants will be given notice of an approved or
disapproved developmental leave. Confirmed and final approval of the
proposals will be dependent upon the University's 1998-99 salary budget
being approved by the State Board of Higher Education.
As in the past, developmental leaves which are approved must be funded
existing departmental and college resources. Thus, it is likely that some
very sound proposals may not be approved for budgetary reasons. Faculty
staff who expect to submit requests for developmental leaves should
their plans with their chairpersons, deans, and/or supervisors prior to
formally submitting their proposals.

GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS
RESEARCH FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR NEWER FACULTY
The Faculty Research and Creative Activity Committee (FRCAC) has recently
established the New Faculty Scholar Awards. These awards are intended
provide extra support for the initiation of research and creative activity
programs of tenure-track assistant professors who have been at UND three
years or less (e.g., date of appointment at UND should be January 1994 or
later). The FRCAC anticipates that many New Faculty Scholar Awards will
lead to the development of projects that will ultimately be funded by
external agencies. Up to three awards of $5,000 each will be made per
year. Only outstanding applications will be funded. Only one competition
will be held for Faculty Scholar Awards each year.
Tuesday, Jan. 20, 1998, is the deadline for submission of New Faculty
Scholar Award applications to the Faculty Research and Creative Activity
Committee. The Committee will consider requests from faculty members to
conduct pure and applied research, support writing projects, or to
other creative and scholarly endeavors (e.g., performances, art projects,
compositions). All costs normally incurred in the conduct of the research
or creative activity are eligible budget items. Travel costs which are
essential to the conduct of the project may be requested; however, travel
to present papers or attend conferences IS NOT allowable under this
The Committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and
be specific and be realistic in their budget requests. All applications
New Faculty Scholar Awards MUST include the completed application form,
letter of support from the departmental chair, the applicant s resume, and
a description of the project. The properly signed original application and
seven copies must be submitted to ORPD prior to the published deadline.
Application forms for the New Faculty Scholar Awards are available at
105 Twamley Hall, 777-4279, or on ORPD s home page (found under "Research"
on UNDInfo). -- Harmon B. Abrahamson (Chemistry), Chair, Faculty Research
and Creative Activity Committee.
ORPD HOMEPAGE OFFERS FUNDING INFORMATION
The ORPD homepage has answers to many questions on research-related
It is accessible from the UND homepage under Research
but you must use an Internet browser with frames capability. Scroll down
the page until the Office of Research and Program Development link is
displayed, and click on it to reach the main ORPD menu. From this page,
can access information on such diverse topics as a description of the
proposal-submission process at UND, a listing of indirect cost rates, and
applications for the Faculty Research and Creative Activity Awards. Links
to useful web addresses are available under Funding Opportunities. The
staff are still around to answer your questions and help in your research
needs, but we also encourage you to visit our web site. -- Sally Eckert-
Tilotta, Assistant to the Director of the Office of Research and Program
DATABASES CAN SEARCH OUT FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
Faculty, staff, and students have several online search packages available
to them to locate research and fellowship funding opportunities. IRIS/IRIS
Alert is similar to the SPIN and SMARTS/GENIUS services, but they each
strengths which may make one package more useful to certain academic areas
than others. We would encourage you to try both to determine which is more
useful to you.
SPIN and IRIS are searchable databases for locating federal, non-federal,
and international sources of funding. Searches may be conducted by key
words, sponsor, deadline date, and/or text. The SMARTS/GENIUS and the
Alert services will automatically perform a funding search and deliver the
results by e-mail to your address. To use the SMARTS/GENIUS and IRIS Alert
modules, a profile of research interests is developed by selecting a
of key words that best describe the areas of interest. SPIN will then
search the database every day for funding opportunities that fit the
profile, delivering the results to the e-mail address you indicate. IRIS
Alert is on a weekly notification schedule. A broad or narrow profile can
be made, controlling the number of responses, and it can be edited as
These services are accessible by any computer on campus with an Internet
browser. SPIN/SMARTS/GENIUS is available at http://www.infoed.org or by
going to the ORPD homepage and clicking on Funding Opportunities.
Alert may be accessed at http://www.grainger.uiuc.edu/iris/ or the ORPD
homepage. Additional information and instructions for use are available in
ORPD. -- Sally Eckert-Tilotta, Assistant to the Director of the Office of
Research and Program Development.

creative activity or other types of scholarly endeavors; (2) requests to
support travel associated with research activities or the presentation of
scholarly papers; and (3) requests for funds to meet publication costs.
Travel requests will be considered only for travel to be completed before
Jan. 20, 1998. Requests for support to improve or supplement instructional
activities will not be considered since applicants should request those
funds from the Office of Instructional Development.
The second deadline for submission of applications is Tuesday, Jan. 20,

The Committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and
be specific and realistic in their budget requests. Although the FRCAC
encourages submission of research/creative activity proposals and
travel/publication requests, the Committee takes into consideration the
most recent FRCAC award granted to each applicant. Priority will be given
to beginning faculty and first-time applicants. Requests for
research/creative activity awards may not exceed $2,500. The Committee has
approximately $55,000 available to award during the 1997-98 academic year.
Application forms for research/creative activity, travel or publication
requests are available at ORPD, 105 Twamley Hall, 777-4279, or on ORPD s

R. W. JOHNSON FOUNDATION:
SUBSTANCE ABUSE POLICY RESEARCH PROGRAM
The Substance Abuse Policy Research Program has been re-authorized for 3
years at $18 million. Six million dollars will be made available for
grants in this third round of the program. The Foundation is accepting
proposals for research projects that will produce policy relevant
information about ways to reduce the harm caused by the use of tobacco,
alcohol, and illegal drugs in the United States. This call for proposals
is intended to encourage experts in public health, law, political science,
medicine, sociology, criminal justice, economics and other behavioral and
policy sciences to address issues related to the nation's number one
problem -- substance abuse. Projects supported are expected to increase
understanding of public and private policy alternatives to reduce the harm
caused by the use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs; including the
advantages, disadvantages, and potential impact. Policy research projects
will continue to be funded in four areas: tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs,
and combinations of tobacco, alcohol, and/or illegal drugs. Projects may
address policies at the national, state, or local levels in the public
sector, or they may address private-sector policies within companies,
associations, unions or trade groups. The project is intended to identify
and assess policies that can reduce the harm caused by substance abuse; to
analyze their feasibility, effectiveness, and likely consequences; and to
help ensure that the understanding gained through these analyses will be
used by decision makers in the public and private sectors. Contact:

INDONESIAN PERCUSSION GROUP TO PERFORM AT MUSEUM
Indonesian melodies of "liquid moonlight" will fall through the air at the
North Dakota Museum of Art when the Museum celebrates the beginning of a
new season for arts organizations across the city Saturday, Sept. 13, at 8
The Schubert Club Gamelan Ensemble, a 20-member orchestra from St. Paul,
will be the featured guest at the celebration. The gamelan is a set of
mostly percussion instruments constructed and tuned as a single unified
ensemble. Gamelan music can be loud and exuberant, but just as frequently
it is subdued and tranquil -- a music which has been described as "flowing
water." The public is invited to take in the sounds of the gamelan as they
walk through the Museum and enjoy Indonesian food prepared especially for
the evening, while meeting and talking with friends, and celebrating the
beginning of a new season. Gamelan music is intended to be party music; it
accompanies the sounds of people talking and laughing together. There will
also be a performance by Tri Sutrisno, a Javanese dancer.
Dance in Java is a highly developed art form, with varied associations in
Javanese cultural life. Court dances, still popular in Central Java, are
elegant and refined. The "refined male" dance is usually performed by a
female dancer. These dances, depicting the youthful charm of sympathetic
young heroes and gods, use movement patterns of both feminine and
dance together, producing a style that is rich and varied. The combination
of male vigor with feminine grace and suppleness is probably the main
reason for its great attractiveness. This style is considered by the
Javanese to be the idealized expression of a balanced and peaceful state
The North Dakota Museum of Art welcomes the general public to Celebrate a
Season of Change Saturday, Sept. 13, at 8 p.m. in the Museum. The event is
free and open to everyone, and arts organizations from across the city and
state will be on hand to offer information on their upcoming seasons. --
Ian Swanson, North Dakota Museum of Art.
WOMEN'S CENTER LISTS EVENTS
The Wednesday, Sept. 17, Feast and Focus program at noon in the Women's
Center, 305 Hamline Street, is "Creating a Medicine Shield." During this
hour we will begin creating medicine shields for ourselves. According to
Sioux tradition, the term medicine carries a broader scope in its meaning
than simple medical healing. Medicine reaches into all facets of a
life. We want to be safe, successful, socially accepted, and spiritually
whole. We have a journey in this lifetime and our medicine shields can be
an expression of our purpose or direction. Each of us is unique and
possibly, this uniqueness can find its reflection upon a symbolic shield.
It will act as a reminder and acknowledgement.
The Thursday Sept. 18, For Women Only program will be "Warrior Woman:
Finding the Courage to Face the Challenges." After the first few weeks of
new journey, it is normal to feel doubt and begin second-guessing oneself.
All the pre-programmed messages begin to replay themselves again: "I'm not
good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it, people don't like me!" This
a time when we need to call on the courage required for continuing down
path. This program will explore courage rituals to keep our feet headed
forward on the path we have begun.
Please join us. -- Donna Oltmanns, Coordinator, Women's Center.

an artist hopes to create a magical moment where everything better and
beautiful and powerful than ever could have been imagined. "Keep the
is one of those moments.
"Keep the Faith" is dedicated to those affected by the Flood of 1997. The
story we tell is ours.
