CALL for Proposals for Sixth Annual VIVO Conference Workshops

Wed, 2015-02-04 12:13 -- carol

Boston, MA  The Sixth Annual VIVO Conference will be held August 12-14, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, overlooking Boston. The VIVO Conference creates a unique opportunity for people from across the country and around the world to come together to explore ways to use semantic technologies and linked open data to promote scholarly collaboration and research discovery.

The VIVO conference is an excellent opportunity to meet with VIVO team members from participating institutions. It also offers an open and collaborative environment to share ideas and discuss topics related to adoption and implementation of VIVO, VIVO-based tools and the opportunities created by advancing data sharing and team science.

2015 Call for Workshops now open! We invite all interested parties to submit workshop proposals for the Sixth Annual VIVO Conference in August. Workshops will be taught on August 12th and each will be 3.5 hours long. We strongly encourage proposals which incorporate a lively presentation style and which use a variety of instructional approaches (e.g. lecture, demonstration, group discussion, brainstorming, hands-on exercises, and case studies) and materials (e.g. slides, handouts, code snippets and sample data on the VIVO
wiki) throughout the session.
