2021 Fall North American Users Meeting

The virtual Fall NA User's Group event will be held on Tuesday, October 26 from 12 - 3 eastern time. 

This event is timed to be convenient for those in the American time zones, but everyone, anywhere in the world, is welcome to join to hear what's going on with VIVO sites in North America and the VIVO Project.

We'll be asking for volunteers to give updates about their own VIVO projects, as well as about work going on in VIVO task forces, interest groups, and governance groups -- anything involving VIVO.

REGISTER HERE to get an invitation adjusted for your timezone, and to sign up to provide an update.

You're invited to present!

We're asking the VIVO North American community to give updates at this meeting. They can be informal, unrehearsed, and unpolished, either with or without slides. Tell us your struggles, your strategies, and your ideas for your VIVO site.

Please plan to give a 15-minute quick talk OR a 30-minute presentation.

In a quick talk, you might talk about VIVO at your institution, such as:

  • What are the primary use cases and goals of VIVO?
  • How’s adoption going, by both profile owners and site visitors?
  • What works well for users, and what are they asking for?

Longer, 30-minute presentations might cover topics like these:

  • A tour of your VIVO site
  • Demo of new functionality or data 
  • Challenges to VIVO at your institution due to shifting resources or other issues
