Subject: understanding the user experience of ontologies

There is a need to understand better how people use ontologies and how they can be helped to use them more effectively.

I am asking for 10 minutes of your time to help gain an enhanced insight into how people use ontologies in real applications, the problems they experience, and the scope for improvement in tools and methodologies.  The survey linked to here<http://www.surveyexpression.com/Survey.aspx?id=81f94a5c-4092-46f0-9393-90c0eeb29218> is designed to gather necessary information to create that enhanced insight.

Completing the survey will take about 10 mins; it is hoped that it will be completed by as many as possible of those who use ontologies.  The results will be made available in the public domain, with all information anonymised and confidentiality maintained.  Anyone who provides an email address as part of the survey response will be sent the survey results.

More information is provided on the survey pages<http://www.surveyexpression.com/Survey.aspx?id=81f94a5c-4092-46f0-9393-90c0eeb29218>.

Many thanks for your help; I believe it will provide valuable insight to enhance the state-of-the-art in the use of ontologies,
