At the SEKE’99 conference, knowledge engineering researchers held a panel on the merits of meta-knowledge (i.e. problem solving methods and ontologies) for the development of knowledge-based systems. The original panel was framed as a debate on the merits of meta-knowledge for knowledge maintenance [21]. However, the debate quickly expanded. In the end, we were really discussing the merits of different technologies for the specification of reusable components for KBS. In this brief article we record some of the lively debate from that panel and the email exchanges it generated.
