VIVO is an open source semantic web application that, when installed and populated with researcher interests, activities, and accomplishments, enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at that institution and beyond.

On August 14, 2013, Senior Systems Analyst and Database Administrator Robert Light and Systems Architect Chin Hua Kong will present "VIVO Data and Visualizations: Design and Usage" at the 2013 VIVO Conference in St. Louis, MO.

An established VIVO instance is a treasure trove of valuable data waiting to be visualized and explored. This workshop will examine the tools that VIVO offers to visualize data, but will also look at some ways that users can retrieve information from VIVO and how that data can be used in other visualization tools (using the Science of Science Tool as the example) to create novel visualizations and insights. Finally, we’ll take a look at the various efforts to explore data across VIVO instances, including vivosearch.org and the International Researcher Network.

This year's VIVO conference provides a unique opportunity for people from across the country and around the world to come together in the spirit of promoting scholarly collaboration and research discovery.

The VIVO conference is an excellent opportunity to meet with VIVO team members from participating institutions, and offers an open and collaborative environment to share ideas and discuss topics related to adoption and implementation of VIVO, VIVO-based tools and the opportunities created by advancing data sharing and team science.
