Subject: [Dclug] Reminder: DC ACM Lecture Tonight (9/11) on Electronic Voting
From: Winter
Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2008 14:30:46 -0400
The Washington, DC chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery, 
with support from the George Washington University student ACM chapter, 
are proud to present the September 2008 lecture.

Dr. Harry Hochheiser

"Voting: The Evolving Political and Technical Landscape"

As the 2008 presidential elections near, voting technologies are still 
the topic of considerable debate among policy makers and technicians. 
Some jurisdictions have abandoned electronic voting machines in favor of 
paper ballots, others have required paper trails. Advocates argue for or 
against different options, while researchers evaluate voting 
technologies and propose new alternative designs. This talk will explore 
recent developments in voting technologies and regulations, from both 
policy and research perspectives.

About the speaker:
Dr. Hochheiser is an Assistant Professor in Towson University's 
Department of Computer and Information Sciences. His research interests 
include human-computer interaction, with a focus on accessibility and 
universal usability; information visualization; bioinformatics; and 
computing and public policy.

As a member of the Executive Committee of the ACM US Public Policy 
Committee (USACM), Dr. Hochheiser has been involved in ACM's study of 
Voter Registration Databases, and in drafting USACM comments on proposed 
voting guidelines.
