On Solving Solved Problems

OASIcs-EVCS-2023-10.pdf (0.4 MB)


Some problems are considered solved by the research community. But are they really and does that mean we should stop investigating them? In this essay, I argue that "solved" problems often only appear solved on the surface, while fundamental open research problems lurk below the surface. It requires dedicated researchers to discover those open problems by applying the existing solutions and putting them to the test.
