Thank you for the input. I totally agree with you that this is an
important topic. (02)
That said, ref.
>From the way the strawman schedule looks, we are really strapped for
session slots to fit anything more into our program between now and
the end of this year - i.e. any topic not belonging to the developing
themes of: OntologyBasedStandards, RulesReasoningLP,
OpenOntologyRepository, OntologySummit, etc. (03)
You might, though, consider proposing this thought of yours (or
something where this is a part of) as the theme for the next Ontology
Summit. The community brainstorm session for the OntologySummit2014
will be on Thu 2013.09.19; so such a proposal will be an input that
will be welcome there. (04)
Please post something onto the wiki at:
or start a thread under the [ontology-summit] mailing list to raise
awareness, get buy-in, and develop that proposal further. (05)
Thanks & regards. =ppy
