I agree very strongly with Matthew West and John Sowa's comments. Apologies for not being engaged more deeply prior to this, but I would have argued to focus the summit more on expounding on the theme sketched out here:
It is hard to develop "global" evaluation criteria, especially when the application frameworks for deployed ontologies can differ in such ways.
On a related aside, I think the summits are doing a wonderful job building and fleshing out the output of previous year's, and I appreciate the intent for 2013. Given that this topic has been decided, I would simply echo some of the comments by others here, that:
JSF: > What is the purpose of an ontology?
MW: So now we can consider the purpose of information, which in business, is
Given the above, and that for 2013:
MG The goal for Ontology Summit 2013 is to identify best practices for
Answering such questions means understanding and deconstructing the purpose and intended application for an ontology.
Moreover, given that the ontology community through the summits has engaged in a very interesting socio-technical experiment (in terms of a community, sharing driven effort), I would suggest that we use (among other resources):
as important starting focal / reference points.
I also believe that we can continue to build a very valuable resource for the research / scientific community at large by building on what Amanda started last year vis-a-vis:
The utility of such a resource will grow exponentially and become more apparent, given a continued / sustained effort over multiple summits.
