Dillard University Spring 2012 Final Grading Procedures

Please note that those faculty members with graded prospective graduates will not be able to utilize the “Set Default LDOA” link you will have to enter the last date of attendance for each student to submit your grades on those rosters.  Please share with all Faculty.

[Description: Description:]


To:                          Faculty

Cc:                          Dr. Phyllis Dawkins, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
                               Dr. Toya Barnes-Teamer, Vice-President for Student Success
                               Dr. Alecia Cyprian, Assistant Vice-President for Enrollment Management

Re:                         Spring 2012 Final Grades

The myDU portal for the entry of final grades is OPEN.  Final grades are due Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 12 noon.

Guidelines for myDU grade entry:

 *   If a student does not appear on your roster please contact me immediately via your DU email account

 *   Enter the last day of attendance and the number absences for each student.  The system will not let you submit your grades without the last date of attendance and number of absences.

·         Every student should receive a final grade of either A, B, C, D, P, F, NC, FA or I (incomplete)

·         All zero credit courses should issue a grade of “P” for pass and “NC” for no credit.

·         Only issue “I” (incomplete) for those students whom you have made arrangements with to submit final work at a later date.  Please see page 20 in the current catalog.

·         For students who did not successfully complete the course due to the Attendance Policy should be issued a grade of “FA” Failure for Attendance.

 *   ALL FINAL GRADES ARE DUE at 12noon on Tuesday, May 8th.

Please contact me via email if you are unable to access your course(s) on myDU and if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation!

HIS 2012 - First Call for Papers

** HIS 2012 -- First Call For Papers **

12th International Conference on Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS'12)

Pune, India

04 - 07 December, 2012

Conference Theme: "Hybrid Intelligent Computing Towards a Greener

Conference Objective:

Hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of
modern artificial/computational intelligence concerned with the
development of the next generation of intelligent systems. A
fundamental stimulus to the investigations of Hybrid Intelligent
Systems (HIS) is the awareness in the academic communities that
combined approaches will be necessary if the remaining tough problems
in artificial/computational intelligence are to be solved. Hybrid
Intelligent Systems are getting popular due to their capabilities in
handling several real world complexities involving imprecision,
uncertainty and vagueness. HIS'12 builds on the success of last
year's. The 4-day conference will feature prominent keynote speakers,
workshop, tutorials, poster and paper presentation in parallel tracks.

HIS 2012 invites novel contributions/papers of soft computing and
pattern recognition from fundamental aspects to various practical

HIS'12 will focus on the following themes:

A) Hybrid Intelligent Systems: Architectures

* Interactions between neural networks and fuzzy inference systems.

* Artificial neural network optimization using global optimization

* Fuzzy clustering algorithms and optimization techniques.

* Fuzzy inference system optimization using global optimization

* Hybrid computing using neural networks - fuzzy systems -evolutionary

* Hybrid optimization techniques (evolutionary algorithms, simulated
annealing, tabu search, GRASP etc.).

* Hybrid of soft computing and statistical learning techniques.

* Models using inductive logic programming, logic synthesis,
grammatical inference, case-based reasoning etc.

* Autonomic computing.

* Hybridizatiion with novel computing paradigms: Qantum computing, DNA
computing, membrane computing etc.

B) Hybrid Intelligent Systems: Applications

* Image and Signal Processing

* Internet Modeling, Communication and Networking

* Data mining

* Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

* Business Information Systems

* Control and Automation

* Special topics


Submission of paper should be made through the submission link in HIS
2012 official website (
). Please refer to the conference website for guidelines to prepare
your manuscript. Like previous years, all accepted papers will be
compiled in conference proceedings published by the IEEE (getting
approval). It is mandatory at least an author registers for every
paper that is included in the conference proceedings. Proceedings will
be made available during the conference.

Important Dates:

Special session proposals: June 15, 2012

Acceptance of special sessions: June 30, 2012

Paper submission due: August 31, 2012

Notification of paper acceptance: September 30, 2012

Final manuscript due: October 15, 2012

Registration and full payment due: October 15, 2012
