Who presents at the VIVO conference?  You do!  There's a ton of great work going on in the VIVO community, and this is your opportunity to share what you have done.  The conference call for proposal deadline is March 14.  Proposals are welcome on all topics related to VIVO: outreach and engagement approaches, data management, constructing data flows, ontology extensions, local implementation issues, tools for ingest, reusing VIVO data, the semantic web, and projects related to VIVO and/or using VIVO data (there are many!)  The program committee is seeking proposals for workshops, panels, posters, and presentations.  Submit your proposal this week.

Are you a first time presenter?  Submitting a proposal is simple.  A 500 word abstract is all you need.

OpenVIVO at the VIVO conference.  Open VIVO is progressing nicely.  We expect a first demonstration at the Force16 conference in Portland.  OpenVIVO will be demonstrated at the VIVO Conference.  Submissions to the VIVO Conference will be posted in the VIVO Conference collection on figshare.  See http://vivo.figshare.com.  If you don't have an ORCiD identifier for yourself, you should get one.  Will take you a 30 seconds.  It's free.  With an ORCiD identifier, you will be able to use OpenVIVO.  Presentation materials will be added to your OpenVIVO profile automatically from Figshare.  

Development call this Thursday. The Development Interest Group will have a call this Thursday at 1 PM Eastern US time.  We're always interested in having new people join the calls.  Contact Graham Triggs for more info.
