Contact us Would you like to learn more about VIVO and how it works? Interested in collaborating? Does your team have specifc questions about supporting VIVO at your institution? Would you like to give us feedback or schedule a demonstration? Drop us a note at http://vivoweb.org/contact. VIVO Open Source Community VIVO enjoys a robust open source, open community. The listservs and weekly phone calls oer ways of connecting with other VIVO project members and the wiki provides documentation and content that supports implementation, adoption, and development eorts around the world.

Social Media http://twitter.com/VIVOcollab http://www.facebook.com/VIVOcollaboration VIVO is an open source, open ontology, open process platform for hosting information about the interests, activities and accomplishments of scientists and scholars. VIVO supports open development and integration of science and scholarship through simple, standard semantic web technologies. Learn more at vivoweb.org. VIVO was originally funded by Cornell University and the National Institutes of Health (U24 RR029822) and is currently a communitysupported incubator project under the DuraSpace umbrella.VIVO provides new opportunities for discovery. Data can reused and repurposed in a wide array of tools and settings by web pages, applications, and other consumers both within and outside the institution. Individuals may access the browse and search functionalities of VIVO anytime via the web. Researchers, scholars, students, administrators, funding agencies, donors, and members of the general public may all benet from using VIVO. A SPARQL query builder is part of the standard VIVO distribution and allows for end-user data requests from a VIVO implementation, enabling access to data for subsequent analysis, evaluation, and visualization of the research enterprise. VIVO aligns with the CTSA Recommendations and Best Practices for Research Networking.VIVO provides data via the semantic web using an ontology for information representation and a standard (RDF) for data formatting. VIVO enables a new class of tools and data sharing, beneting scholars and science. Learn more What is VIVO?

VIVO is fundamentally interdisciplinary; it enables and promotes the discovery of research and scholarship across traditional boundaries of geography, organization structure and type, academic or clinical or applied domain, technology, language, and culture. Research Discovery Moving forward! VIVO eventsThere are currently over 100 VIVO implementation projects in 30+ countries. opportunities in the research and clinical environments. Other ongoing work includes development of an extension around evaluation concepts. The ISF team is composed of team members from several dierent CTSA-awarded institutions and many related projects (e.g., VIVO, eagle-i, ShareCenter) The ISF is an eort to merge and integrate the VIVO and eagle-i ontologies and augment with other ontological frameworks (e.g., clinical codes, genetic and cellular information, software, reagents, and pharmacological information see (http://www.ctsaconnect.org/ontologies) to better represent people, resources, andThe Integrated Semantic Framework (ISF)Information and images courtesy of Chris Kelleher, Carlo Torniai, and Melissa Haendel of CTSAconnect, http://www.ctsaconnect.org/.VIVO is joining DuraSpace to realize a shared mission through an established legal and nancial framework compatible with VIVOs own vision and goals. Institutions, organizations and corprations have an opportunity to participate in the process of incubation to coordinate existing eorts and prepare VIVO to provide long-term benets to a worldwide community. Deliverables: Governance structures and processes for sustainability of all activities. Continued expansion of the VIVO community, events. Continued software development Implementation support. Continued development of the ontology. Expansion Of vivosearch.org to provide an integrated search site for VIVO data. Advocacy and contribution to standards. 2013 VIVO Implementation Fest This years VIVO Implementation Fest will be held on the University of Colorado Boulder campus on Thursday and Friday, April 25 and 26, 2013. There will be no cost to register or attend, however attendees are responsible for their own lodging, transportation, and meals. Please visit http://goo.gl/3gsz2 to register.
