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.
- 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.
- a virtual VIVO conference with an attractive program
Perhaps the conference can be in mid/late June?
Solicit members and schedule first meeting
