  AAAI 2014 Fall Symposium on Energy Market Prediction
November 13-15, Washington, DC

Call For Papers:

Renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are rapidly entering
the global marketplace with the potential to disrupt and leapfrog a 
century
of electricity generation, distribution, and consumption infrastructure.
Insights into future energy patterns underpin the selection of technical
and non-technical policies, from electric grid planning to tax incentive
structuring. The advent of granular spatiotemporal energy data streams, 
the
availability of large administrative datasets, and an expanding 
knowledge
base of decision-making models beyond the rational choice framework 
present
a compelling opportunity for computational scientists to push the state 
of
the art in innovation diffusion research.

This symposium focuses on challenges related to the wide-scale consumer
adoption of clean energy technologies. Consumer-focused clean tech 
covers a
broad scope of products and services including: distributed energy
generation and management (e.g., solar panels, battery storage, and load
shifting), usage analysis (e.g., smart-grid enabled metering), and
energy-saving technologies (e.g., hybrid and electric cars, CFL and LED
bulbs, and Energy Star appliances). There are economic, social, 
cognitive
and technical challenges and issues that underlie adoption of this 
diverse
set of technologies.

Papers are invited on topics including, but not limited to, the 
following:

1. Computational approaches to the marketing of clean energy/sustainable 
technologies
2. Factors that influence consumer adoption
a. Data analysis of consumer adoption data, surveys, etc.
b. Laboratory experiments on framing, attitudes, incentives, etc.
3. Model building to predict consumer adoption
a. Social networks: Information diffusion, influence maximization, etc.
b. Economic aspects: Game theory, network economics, and information
economics addressing the problem of clean energy technology evolution 
and diffusion
c. Validation/verification and uncertainty quantification of adoption 
models
d. Techniques to enhance adoption (e.g., policy optimization, economic
incentives, and information dissemination campaigns)
4. Models to estimate cost changes in clean energy technology (e.g., 
price
reduction in solar panel technology)
5. Evaluating the impact of clean energy adoption on power system
infrastructure
a. Resilient deployment of clean energy technologies on the electricity 
grid
b. Resource forecasting models
