The focus of this year’s Ontology Summit is Ontology Evaluation, something that we are already being criticized for as being to broad. So unless you can suggest how visualization, etc relate to evaluation, I think they will need to wait for another year.

Not sure if this topic came up yet, but how about Ontology Visualization and Interaction?
Another one of interest: Executable Ontologies, and ontologies that include process/algorithms?
Sorry if these are out of theme, but haven’t had a chance to read the whole string. Thanks.
Items 1,2, and 4 of your suggested tracks are, or should be,
intimately related. In the context of systems development the
requirements (hence uses) are the driver.

Subject: [ontology-summit] Potential Tracks for Ontology Summit 2013
Sent by: ontology-summit-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
in preparation for Thursday's Pre-launch of Ontology Summit 2013,
here are some proposals for potential tracks.
One objective of the session will be to decide on the tracks and
specific topics that will be addressed within the tracks.
Please note that this list of potential tracks is meant to start the
discussion -- if you have other ideas for tracks, please join us
on Thursday's call!
1. Dimensions of Ontology Evaluation
- addresses notions of verification, validation, quality, ranking, ...
2. Evaluation and the Ontology Application Framework
- looks at the problem of ontology evaluation from the perspective of
the applications that use the ontologies. This Framework was one of the
outcomes of Ontology Summit 2011
3. Best Practices in Ontological Analysis
- focuses on the ontology evaluation based on the ontology itself, such
as logical criteria (consistency, completeness, modularity) and
ontological analysis techniques (e.g. OntoClean).
4. Requirements for Ontologies
- how do we specify the requirements against which we evaluate ontologies?
5. Environments for Developing and Evaluating Ontologies
- what are best practices for evaluation that we can adapt from software
particularly with distributed open-source software development?
