(apologies for crossposts)
OWLED is not only about sharing OWL experiences, but also on the
direction in which OWL should be developed. Day 1 of this year's OWLED
will be concluded with a session on the future of OWL .
In anticipation of this session, we are soliciting (fresh, good) ideas
and opinions on the next steps for OWL.
To give some ideas. Topics may touch upon a wide variety of OWL-
related issues, such as much-needed language features (expressiveness,
annotations, time, space), scalability, compatibility, interaction and
interoperability with other languages (SKOS, RIF etc.), syntaxes,
'spreading the word' (or, 'how not to evangelize too much'), tools,
uncharted application domains, strategies to stimulate industry take-
up, etc. etc. etc.
In particular, we would like to have your input on the last point: now
that OWL 2 is in its final stage of development, how do we go about
creating a mature 'market' for OWL-based technologies. What are the
biggest hurdles ahead?
Please post your ideas as response to this email on public-owl-dev at w3.org
, or privately to me.
Plenty of inspiration can be found on the workshop series homepage
, OWLED taskforces , or by having a look at the papers of this
year's OWLED at  or .
Looking forward to hearing from you! (and perhaps even meeting you
next week... who knows?)
