    of the future You can finish your thesis or dissertation more efficiently by interacting with your professors electronically and saving on copying costs 2 Why PDF files Converting theses dissertations to PDF files and distributing them in that form has many advantages The leading web browsers support PDF and the format and paging stays consistent whether someone views the ETD from Windows Macintosh or Unix platforms Since Acrobat Reader can be downloaded at no cost publishing your work in PDF will make it possible for people anywhere to read your work for free PDF files can also be created easily from most leading word processing software packages such as Word and Word Perfect The converted PDF work will retain your text pictures photographs and so on And finally PDF files are accepted by UMI the division of Bell and Howell that publishes dissertations including all GW dissertations 3 What other electronic formats are allowed The text portion of your thesis or dissertation and that may be all some theses and dissertations have should be a PDF document You can also use any of the document formats below if you have more than text These formats are already approved by UMI Images GIF gif JPEG jpeg PDF pdf use Type 1 PostScript fonts TIFF tif Video Apple Quick Time mov Microsoft Audio Video Interleaved avi MPEG mpg Audio AIF aif CD DA CD ROM XA MIDI midi MPEG 2 SND snd WAV wav We do not wish to limit you to any particular formats and encourage you to work with software programs you are comfortable with If you wish to use a format other than the ones above please email the Gelman ETD Administrator to discuss the issue etds gwu edu 4 Will I need to purchase software No you do not need to purchase additional software You may choose to buy Adobe Acrobat if you plan to do other web based publishing in the future but that would be your choice The Adobe web site is http www adobe com The computer labs on both the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses have Adobe Acrobat XI Professional edition available for student use to convert their manuscripts in Adobe PDF format Please go to the Academic Support Services page for information on these facilities In addition there is a PDF conversion tool available as part of the ETD Submission website TOP 5 Can I publish my thesis dissertation in PDF if I have already started writing my work in another word processing program Absolutely That is the normal way to do it because it is easy to convert most word processing documents into PDF files and that will typically be the last step in publishing your ETD You are best off writing your dissertation in whatever word processing program you are most used to using TOP 6 Will there be any size limits imposed on ETDs The ProQuest UMI server to which you will be loading the PDF of your thesis

52 Data Community DC and District Data Labs are hosting a Fast Data Applications with Spark Python workshop on Saturday January 23rd from 9am 5pm Register before January 9th for an early bird discount OVERVIEW Hadoop has made the world of Big Data possible by providing a framework for distributed computing on economical commercial off the shelf hardware Hadoop 2 0 implements a distributed file system HDFS and a computing framework YARN that allows distributed applications to easily harness the power of clustered computing on extremely large data sets Over the past decade the primary application framework has been MapReduce a functional programming paradigm that lends itself extremely well to designing distributed applications but carries with it a lot of computational overhead Many excellent analytical applications and algorithms have been written in MapReduce creating an ecosystem that has made Hadoop continue to grow as an effective tool However more complex algorithms especially machine learning algorithms often require extremely complex chains of jobs to conform to the MapReduce functional paradigm Enter Spark an open source Apache project that uses the cluster resource daemons of Hadoop particularly HDFS and other Hadoop data stores but allows developers to break out of the MapReduce paradigm and write distributed applications that are much faster Spark also distributes applications to a cluster by using distributed executor processes Spark developers write applications that are intended to work on local data however unlike with MapReduce these executors communicate with each other and can share data via an external store Spark is intended to work with Hadoop data stores but can also be run in stand alone mode If you already have a Hadoop 2 0 cluster then Spark can be run with YARN The flexibility that Spark provides means that it can be used to implement more complex algorithms and applications previously unavailable to MapReduce patterns Spark can run in memory making it hundreds of times faster than disk based MapReduce and provides a programming API in Scala Java and Python which makes it more accessible to developers Spark has an interactive command line interface to quickly interact with data on the cluster applications for writing SQL like queries and a fairly complete machine learning library It can also execute graph algorithms that were previously unable to be ported to MapReduce frameworks WHAT YOU WILL LEARN In this one day workshop we will introduce Spark at a high level context Spark is fundamentally different than writing MapReduce jobs so no prior Hadoop experience is needed You will learn how to interact with Spark on the command line and conduct rapid in memory data analyses We will then work on writing Spark applications to perform large cluster based analyses including SQL like aggregations machine learning applications and graph algorithms The course will be conducted in Python using PySpark COURSE OUTLINE The workshop will cover the following topics Interacting with Spark via the Spark Shell Interacting with RDDs and other distributed data Creating Spark applications in Python Submitting Spark applications to the cluster Aggregations and Queries using Spark SQL Machine Learning with Spark MLLib Graph computing with Spark GraphX After this course you should understand how to build distributed applications using Python and Spark particularly for conducting analyses You will be introduced to Spark applications and be able to run Spark SQL queries on a distributed database conduct machine learning with SparkMLib and execute graph algorithms with Spark GraphX More Info Registration DC Nightowls becomes DC2 Digital Nomads Fri 2015 12 11 21 41 For several years now the DC
