*Announcing Series Five in the DuraSpace Hot Topics Webinar Series:
Discovery and Networking*

*Winchester, MA*  DuraSpace is pleased to announce the latest Hot Topics
Webinar Series, VIVO–Research Discovery and Networking. DuraSpace web
seminars fill up fast so be sure to reserve your spot today!

*Hot Topics: The DuraSpace Community Webinar Series Series Five:
VIVO–Research Discovery and Networking*
* Curated by Dean Krafft, Chief Technology Strategist at Cornell University
Library and Chair of the VIVO-DuraSpace Incubator Project Management

VIVO is an open community, an information model, and an open source
semantic web application supporting the advancement of scholarship by
integrating and sharing information about scholars, their activities and
outputs at a single institution. Discovery of related work and expertise is
supported across a distributed multi-institutional network. VIVO supports
descriptions of the full academic context of scholars and researchers in
any discipline, and it makes explicit the connections of researchers and
scholars to their grants, publications, courses, creative works,
co-authors, datasets, performances, research instruments, projects, and
much more.

VIVO is joining DuraSpace as the VIVO Project, via the DuraSpace incubation
program, to realize our shared mission in support of research and
scholarship through an established legal and financial framework compatible
with VIVO’s own vision and goals. This webinar series will introduce VIVO
and the VIVO community, provide views into VIVO implementations at three
quite different institutions, and conclude with a more technical session
describing the VIVO ontologies, linked open data, and the community
processes supporting VIVO as a new project with DuraSpace.  There are 3
webinars in this series:

*Overview of VIVO*
Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 11:00amEDT
Register here:

VIVO is an open-source research discovery tool that integrates information
about researchers with additional context from their relationships to
grants, publications, research facilities, projects, events, affiliations,
and with other researchers. VIVO stores this information as a network for
browsing or searching in a single tool across a university or other
institution.  This webinar provides an introduction to VIVO, to the
open-source technologies and standards it builds on, and to the community
of people and organizations in academia, government, non-profit, and
corporate world engaged in VIVO and the exchange and interoperability of
VIVO-compatible data.  Highlights from VIVO implementations will include
examples of VIVO's current and potential connections to related tools
including institutional repositories, dataset registries, research resource
discovery systems, and social networking platforms.

*Case Studies: VIVO at Colorado, Brown, Duke, *
*and Weill Cornell Medical College*

This second webinar in the VIVO series will highlight VIVO activity at four
adopting institutions – the University of Colorado Boulder, Brown
University, Duke University, and Weill Cornell Medical College. Presenters
from each institution will show how VIVO has been configured, branded, and
extended to meet local needs, and then briefly describe the teams
implementing VIVO, VIVO's fit with other tools and services in their
institutional setting, and the road map ahead locally and together with the
VIVO community.

*VIVO Technical Deep Dive*
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 11:00amEDT

The third and final webinar will focus on technology and participation. We
will look under the hood at the semantic technologies underlying VIVO,
including the VIVO ontology and how the application architecture uses
ontologies for configuration and extensibility. VIVO operates as a
community organized around weekly or biweekly open ontology, implementation
and development calls, with two significant annual face-to-face events that
increasingly bring together a wider research networking community focused
on open-source tools, internationally-driven standards efforts, and
interoperability through linked open data.
