September 30: ESR SIS: Understanding Today, Preparing for Tomorrow

The ESR SIS project has spent the last 2 years on an intensive business process analysis effort, speaking with hundreds of staff, faculty, and students in order to understand the current state of the university's student services, identify opportunities for improvement, and together envision the future we want to see. We are now performing "pre-hab" on reporting needs and system integrations. Altogether, this work is paving the way for a future where we see human-centered problem-solving at the core of the SIS.

Technologies/Skills Covered: Lean Six Sigma, business process analysis, Student Information System, activity hubs, reporting, long term strategic planning

  • Jonathan Whitman, Director of Student & Faculty Information Services, Information Technology Services
  • Andrew Kaplan, Director of Client & Student Services, Extension
  • David Garrison, Senior Associate Registrar, Enrollment Management
  • Brian Smith, Project Manager, IT Services

October 7: Web-Based Research Collaboration and Data Management Platforms

In this presentation, the following projects will be discussed:

  1. SeedMeLab - a scientific data management system and
  2. HubZero - A platform for web-based research collaboration for communities
  3. Emerging needs for research computing and data from the web

Technologies/Skills CoveredSeedMeLab's Drupal-based platform, HubZero's custom CMS, Docker containers, VNC and other technologies

October 14: Tracing COVID-19 Through Effluent Testing for the Return to Learn Program

We will discuss the articulation of the development of a real-time data view of the spatial sewer system with mobile sample tracking capability and the ability to link laboratory testing data for timely analysis. In an informative and secure manner, results are furnished to UC San Diego constituents, external agencies, and the public. This workflow increases efficiency and awareness concerning COVID-19 testing and tracing by integrating rich interconnected geospatial data and lab results to inform audiences accurately.

Technologies/Skills Covered: Esri, ArcGIS Online, Geoprocessing tools


  • Diana Henderson, Campus Space Analyst, Planning Design & Construction
  • Yijian Zong, Data Science Intern, OSI

October 21: Controlled Unclassified Information and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certifications at UC San Diego

Contracts and Grants that require compliance with NIST 800-171 continue to grow, as does our program to address the DoDs CMMC requirements. This talk will provide an overview of the problem, where we are in our program, and what the next 5 years will look like.
