Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • If we were to design a new scientific field with a clean slate perspective, what might be

    the outcome? The panelists have been working in various ways for the last few years on

    establishing a new domain of inquiry, Energy Informatics. The panel will address key

    questions that they think should be considered by those designing a new discipline.

    Specifically, they will address the following critical questions: (1) How do you enhance

    research community effectiveness? (2) How do you enhance research community

    efficiency? (3) What are the central activities and key resources? (4) How do you assess

    an effective contribution? These questions follow directly from the panel’s contention

    that a new field should make every endeavor to avoid accepting legacy systems as an

    appropriate infrastructure for conducting research in today’s world.
