  1. Individual Development Plans (IDPs) have been used to support the career and professional development of graduate students across disciplines. This interactive session focuses on how IDPs can help you build your skills, form your professional identity, and take control of your career through an iterative process of self‐assessment, career exploration, decision making and goal setting. To provide an introduction to the IDP process attendees will be able to take a self‐assessment to learn about their particular strengths and begin to target their strengths toward their professional goals. Additionally a co‐developer and researcher of IDP platforms will highlight the aspects that can help your IDP be more effective than others.
  2. Alertness is a crucial component of our cognitive performance. Reduced alertness can negatively impact memory consolidation, productivity and safety. As a result, there has been an increasing focus on continuous assessment of alertness. The existing methods usually require users to wear sensors, fill out questionnaires, or perform response time tests periodically, in order to track their alertness. These methods may be obtrusvie to some users, and thus have limited capability. In this work, we propose AlertnessScanner, a computer-vision-based system that collects in-situ pupil information to model alertness in the wild. We conducted two in-the-wild studies to evaluate the effectiveness of our solution, and found that AlertnessScanner passively and unobtrusively assess alertness. We discuss the implications of our findings and present opportunities for mobile applications that measure and act upon changes in alertness.
