General research priorities
Coding and structuring semantic content as different research activities [see W3C as a bad example]
More interdisciplinary work between different disciplines (philosophy, linguistics, cognitive science, computer science) and communities (DB, IS, OO, WWW, KE, KR, KM, KO, IR, NLP)
Explicit recognition of theoretical foundations (learn from DL)
Ad-hoc effort on tools for cooperative ontology development and standardization
Adequate support of large scale RTD activities in content standardization and content metadata harmonization NOW!
- Linguistic ontologies vs. general and application ontologies
- e-Commerce vs. PDM and Digital Libraries
