Hi All,

I was hoping to get some clarification on the following points:

Part of the Mission Statement for Track B refers to behaviors that are "...controlled or influence by an ontology."
What does it mean for an ontology to "influence" behaviour?

It also states that:
"The ontology in question may be fully embedded/encapsulated within an entity or system,...."
Exactly what is meant by this?  Does this refer to a situation where the ontology, as a set of axioms, does not exist and is only implicitly represented (i.e. embedded) in the system?  Or, does this refer to a situation where the ontology is built into a system and not easily accessible for isolated evaluation?  In the former case, do language-specific issues (e.g. FOL vs OWL) become irrelevant?
