Welcome two new members – University of Idaho and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research! VIVO has two new members this week!
The University of Idaho is the U.S. state of Idaho's oldest public university, located in the city of Moscow in Latah County in the northern portion of the state. It is the state's land-grant and primary research university. Wikipedia See their VIVO here: https://vivo.nkn.uidaho.edu/vivo/
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research is a nonprofit consortium of more than 100 colleges and universities providing research and training in atmospheric and related sciences. UCAR manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and provides additional services to strengthen and support research and education through its community programs.

We thank UCAR and the University of Idaho for joining the project as members. Their support and the support of all our members, help insure VIVO's ability to continue to develop software, ontology, and community in service to the representation of scholarship across the world.

More from the conference It's last call for conference materials to be posted to figshare! If you presented at the VIVO Conference and have not yet posted your materials to figshare, please do so this week. We have over 90% of the materials presented already posted. Thanks to all the presenters who have uploaded their materials, the response has been fantastic. If you haven't posted your materials yet, it's very easy to do. Log on to figshare (create an account if you do not have one), upload your poster or presentation, and tag your material vivo16. Your material will become part of the figshare VIVO 2016 collection and will be available on the VIVO 2016 Conference page in OpenVIVO.
Implementation Interest Group this Thursday The Implementation Interest Group will meet this Thursday at 1 PM US eastern time. The group is a great forum for sharing ideas about creating and managing a VIVO for your institution. The group has updates from sites around the world, takes questions regarding VIVO and VIVO data, and helps sites get their VIVOs going. New to the VIVO calls? You will find the Implementation call a great place to get started. It's always great to meet new people and help keep projects moving forward.
