Panel: 'How do we measure progress in formal ontology research?'

Chair: Chris Welty (IBM, USA)

How do we measure progress in formal ontology research? Mathematicans and logicians solve open problems; physicists propose and test new theories, or discover new phenomena; engineers design and build new materials and devices. What do we, as the FOIS community, do? Have we made progress in the past ten years?
