VIVO Camp is a multi-day training event designed specifically for new and prospective users. Camp will be held October 18-20, 2018 in the Butler Library at Columbia University.  Over two and a half days, VIVO Camp will start with an introduction to VIVO leading to a comprehensive overview by exploring these topics: 

  • VIVO features
  • Examples and demos of VIVO including customizations
  • Representing scholarship
  • Loading, displaying and using VIVO 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. Participants should bring specific questions to VIVO Camp for discussion.

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