Some publications do not fit neatly into one or another category. Bound proceedings of conferences or program review meetings
frequently cover subjects in many different areas. This is especially true of the proceedings of DOE sponsored conferences that brought
together all of the subcontractors in the Building Equipment Research Program. These Contractor Integration Meetings provided
an overview of research activities to DOE and national laboratory managers and helped them coordinate large research projects, to avoid
unnecessary overlap of activities, and to build cooperative efforts to leverage available funding.
