To see what ontologies/data we have.
To see where we have real connections between them.
To see where we do not have these connections.
To see which fields of the very broad area of 'health care and life science' are being covered at the moment.

Yes.

> to who?

To us current developers.
To potential future developers.
To people that want to use our Semantic Web creations and don't know what we have to offer at the moment.
To people with general interest in ontologies and web technologies.
To people that try to criticize the Semantic Web for being a mere academic vision.
To W3C members that want to evaluate what the HCLS IG has actually accomplished during its existence.

cheers,
Matthias Samwald
