Abstract

At the previous ITM in Baltimore, the author presented a paper entitled “Toward the establishment of a common framework for model evaluation” (Olesen, 1996). It described various ongoing activities aimed to improve model evaluation methods. Further, it discussed problems about the way that evaluation is normally practised, and suggested ways to improve matters.
