Ithaca, NY The Third Annual VIVO Conference will be held in Miami, Florida August 22-24, 2012 to help promote scholarly collaboration and research discovery.
VIVO is an open source semantic web application that enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplinary and administrative boundaries in an institution through interlinked profiles of people and other research-related information. VIVO, originally developed at Cornell University, is being expanded through a $12.2m stimulus grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the University of Florida and six partner institutions (Cornell University; Indiana University; Ponce School of Medicine, Puerto Rico; The Scripps Research Institute; Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis; and Weill Cornell Medical College). VIVO is funded by the National Institutes of Health, U24 RR029822.
Call for papers
In the past 3 years, a growing international movement of developers, researchers, administrators,funders, librarians and informaticians has converged around the vision of openly representing research and researchers via Linked Open Data. VIVO is helping to make this vision a reality through its community, through open software and the VIVO ontology, and a growing number of adopters and collaborators worldwide, across multiple knowledge domains.
Abstracts for presentations, posters, panels (deadline May 30) and apps (deadline Jult 31) are welcome. See the conference web site for details: http://vivoweb.org/conference2012
