Event description


VIVO Camp is a multi-day training event designed specifically for new and prospective users. Camp will be held April 6-8, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Albuquerque. Over two and a half days, VIVO Camp will start with an introduction to VIVO and gradually develop a comprehensive overview by exploring these topics:

  • VIVO features

  • Examples and demos of VIVO including customizations

  • Representing scholarship

  • Loading data

  • Introduction to the ontologies

  • Managing a VIVO project

  • Engaging communities

  • Using VIVO resources

Participants can expect to gain a broad understanding of all aspects of implementing VIVO, including scoping and planning, development and data ingest, user engagement and customizations. This event will be an opportunity to meet and consult with key VIVO community members and to benefit from the experience of many successful VIVO implementations. The curriculum will include multiple opportunities to address current challenges, so participants will be instructed in advance to bring specific problems and implementation barriers to VIVO Camp.

VIVO Camp instructors provide years of experience holding VIVO events, managing VIVO implementations, and participating in the VIVO community.

  • Mike Conlon, VIVO Project Director and served as the principal investigator at the University of Florida on the NIH grant to create the VIVO community

  • Graham Triggs, VIVO Technical Lead

  • Violeta Ilik, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

  • Paul Albert, Weill Cornell Medicine, and chair of the VIVO Implementation Interest Group

  • Julia Trimmer, Duke University. Julia manages the Scholars@Duke team and serves as the Co-Lead of the VIVO Outreach and Engagement Interest Group.

An itinerary for the camp is available here.
