2015 VIVO i-Fest

We're excited to invite you to the 2015 VIVO implementation Fest (i-Fest) where it doesn't matter if you're a seasoned VIVO aficionado or someone who's just begun to learn about VIVO! There will be something of interest for everyone, and the i-Fest is a wonderful way to meet other people who are part of VIVO's open-source community. We're in the initial planning stages and have identified some exciting themes where you'll be able to learn things ranging from basic concepts about the VIVO-ISF ontology! to making VIVO work with other applications. We're hoping that you can join us in Portland, Oregon so mark your calendars now!

Registration: There is no registration fee, but you will need to register for the i-Fest.  Please use this link to register. Registration is on a first come, first served basis because the number of attendees that we can accommodate is limited.

We're looking forward to seeing you,

The VIVO i-Fest Planning Group
