Annual Team Kick-off December 4, 2014

Posted on Updated on

Our now traditional team kick-off took place the 4th of December. Daniel hosted the kick-off this year and we were 9 people attending during different parts of the day. In the morning session Daniel, Malin, Ulrica, Elina, Åke, Hanna and Jonas described our current positions and aspirations in relation to sustainability and research. Discussion spanned from what is our underlying driving forces to issues with the doctoral student situation. Next the team discussed possible venues for publication and grant application. Some of the possible conference venues mentioned were; Nordes (deadline Jan 7, 2015) and ICT4S2015 (deadline March 15, 2015). The team also wanted to find a suitable conference in Europe where we could present work relating to behavior, energy and sustainability and one possibility is the ECEEE (European Council of Energy Efficient Economy) summer study. Journals were also discussed, and a long list of possible journals were generated (of course all with high impact factor).

After lunch Jonas left the group and Cecilia joined. The 5-year vision were scrutinized and we also went through our goals for 2014 and formulated new goals for 2015. We have reached several of the quite extensive goals of 2014. 2015 we raise our targets even more! Here are just some of our numerous goals:

  • Formulate at least 5 master theses proposals
  • Write more than 12 text, preferably in new author constellations
  • Have a internal review process before submissions
  • Our research should be presented or mentioned in 5 popular science texts
  • Write at least one international and one national research application with partners outside of MID

ICT enabled practice, all notes were taken immediately on several computers in a shared online document.

After a short walk in the grey and misty weather, we continued with our last session where we aimed at doing something concrete. We started discussing possible collaborations around papers that we could send to ICT4S 2015. This is also the session when our last team member joined the event, Ambjörn, who also stayed to discuss a possible paper to the conference Critical Computing with a deadline February 15, 2015.



PS. Daniel also wrote up an account of the kick-off on his academic blog.
