Workshop Goals & Agenda:
This 1 1/2 day workshop brings together programmers and users of VIVO specifically and other national researcher networking (NRN) services in general. Demonstration of existing approaches, tools, and techniques as well as discussion of synergies, will provide a point of departure for developing value added services to massive amounts of interlinked (semantic web) scholarly data.
The goals of the meeting are:
- Present and discuss current research, tools, and services for VIVO/NRN.
- Identify synergistic collaboration opportunities and challenges.
- Outline a course of activities over the next 5 years.
Given the diverse backgrounds of the participants and the goals of the workshop, we will use the first Â½ day for brief self-introductions, followed by three 30 minute overview talks that set the stage for the workshop. The day concludes with a discussion of challenges and opportunities and a hosted dinner. The second full day features brainstorming and discussion sessions in different team sizes and combinations. A particular focus on application developmentâ€”how VIVO and other NRN can support application development, how application development tools be shared, and what kinds of NRN applications and services are technologically feasible and most beneficial for supporting science.
