Please excuse any cross postings.

Dear Colleagues,

In the past 3 years, a growing international movement of developers, researchers, administrators, funders, librarians and informaticians has converged around the vision of openly representing research and researchers via Linked Open Data. VIVO is helping to make this vision a reality through its community, through open software and the VIVO ontology, and a growing number of adopters and collaborators worldwide, across multiple knowledge domains.  The 2012 VIVO conference will explore how to participate in and best take advantage of the emerging Linked Open Data world encompassing and expanding our understanding of research.

Who should attend?
Scholars, scientists, researchers, developers, publishers, funding agencies, research officers, students, institutional officials and those supporting the development of research discovery, data sharing and team science.

Conference Highlights
The conference begins with a full day of workshops for those new to VIVO, those implementing VIVO and those wishing to develop applications using VIVO.  Keynote addresses, invited speakers, scientific panels, contributed papers and posters will cover a range of topics, including the semantic web, linked open data, VIVO sustainability, adopting and implementing VIVO, research networking, network visualization, ontology and the role of VIVO in support of team science.

Registration, hotel and travel:
Submission Information:  Call for Papers<> (due May 30) and Apps Contest<> (due July 31)
