VIVO 2016 Conference
August 17, 2016 - August 19, 2016
The annual VIVO Conference brings together scholars, scientists, researchers, developers, publishers, funding agencies, research officers, students, institutional officials and those supporting the development of team science. Scientists across all disciplines learn from each other throughout various session types and networking activities at this three-day event.
VIVO is an open source semantic web application originally developed and implemented at Cornell. When installed and populated with researcher interests, activities, and accomplishments, it enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at that institution and beyond. VIVO supports browsing and a search function which returns faceted results for rapid retrieval of desired information. Content in any local VIVO installation may be maintained manually, brought into VIVO in automated ways from local systems of record, such as HR, grants, course, and faculty activity databases, or from database providers such as publication aggregators and funding agencies.The rich semantically structured data in VIVO support and facilitate research discovery. Examples of applications that consume these rich data include: visualizations, enhanced multi-site search through VIVO Search, and applications such as VIVO Searchlight, a browser bookmarklet which uses text content of any webpage to search for relevant VIVO profiles, and the Inter-Institutional Collaboration Explorer, an application which allows visualization of collaborative institutional partners, among others.
