|16:30-17:30||Panel/Discussion: The role of ontologies in dialogue systems|
| Are we using ontologies the right way?|
What drawbacks/advantages are there?
What dialogue specific information must be encoded in the ontology, if any?
What language specific information must be encoded in the ontology, if any?
What can we learn from other disciplines concerning ontology design and use?
And what can they learn from us?
Are there alternatives to ontologies?
What kind of requirements are there for the representation language for ontologies?
How can we use ontologies in open domains?
