Completed.  261 attendees.  Yay!

Context

The VIVO Conference is the major annual event for knowledge exchange and networking in the VIVO Community. Regarding the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic being a threat to large parts of the world, it seems reasonable to switch to a virtual conference for this year. In this task force we will organize this virtual event.

By hosting a virtual event, we hope to engage people who would not typically be able to attend a VIVO Conference.

Objectives

  • Organize the technical framework for a virtual conference
  • Find a suitable format for this event
  • Establish technical and organizational support before, during and after the event.

Deliverables

  • a virtual VIVO conference with an attractive program

Suggested schedule

Perhaps the conference can be in mid/late June?
