The inaugural VIVO Camp, a multi-day training event at the University of
New Mexico in Albuquerque from April 6 to 8, will give new and prospective
users a unique opportunity to learn how VIVO can capture and promote
scholarly accomplishments at your institution.

*Registration closes on February 24, so be sure to register soon at *

Designed for all project roles including administrators, IT strategists,
librarians, analysts and developers, VIVO Camp will begin with the basics
and build toward more advanced concepts-no prior VIVO experience is
required. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of all aspects
of VIVO, including how it can support your institution's mission and how to
strategize your implementation to fit your environment. You'll benefit from
multiple opportunities to work with experienced VIVO  gurus on development,
data ingest, user engagement, communications and customizations.

A draft curriculum is available here: https://goo.gl/bAO7vm

*Meet our VIVO experts*

Our faculty, who have experience with many successful VIVO implementations,
will be ready to meet and consult with participants. They will use their
expertise to offer attendees' possible solutions for problems and barriers
to implementation-so please come prepared to discuss your specific issues.
Mike Conlon, VIVO Project Director points out, "VIVO Camp provides an ideal
environment for people considering VIVO and those new to VIVO to meet each
other, meet with experts in the VIVO community, and get up to speed

   - *Mike Conlon*, VIVO Project Director and served as the principal
   investigator at the University of Florida on the NIH grant to create the
   VIVO community
   - *Graham Triggs*, VIVO Technical Lead
   - *Violeta Ilik*, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
   - *Paul Albert*, Weill Cornell Medicine, and chair of the VIVO

   and serves as the Co-Lead of the VIVO Outreach and Engagement Interest

The first day of camp will feature a broad overview of VIVO, including a
feature review, and the rationale behind why others have chosen to
implement VIVO at their institutions. Day two will be more hands-on, with
in-depth explanations of core and external services coupled with exercises.
Finally, the camp will finish with a discussion on future directions for
the project. Each day will include hands on exercises, and breakout
sessions for sharing ideas regarding VIVO and VIVO implementations.

*An opportunity to register for VIVO Camp at a discounted rate is offered
to DuraSpace members. Space is limited-VIVO Camp has a cap of 30 people.
You must register by February 24 to reserve your place.*

Thank you,
