  • Colorado (Stephen & Alex)

    • hit a snag in Harvester ingest due to a corruption in our Boulder inference model, so inferencer has been running for 24 hours

    • start on 1.6 dev items next week

    • Elements v4.4 install and started to explore publications functionality

  • Cornell (Jim)

    • Wiki pages from Tim, Multi-site search and odds and ends from Jim

    • Welcome back Brian Caruso :)

  • Duke (Richard)

    • had some questions on ontology items

    • preparing for schools of Business, Engineering, Nursing, Environment

  • EPA (Laura & Zac)

    • single sign on to VIVO profiles from email

    • work on HR and publications data ingest including access to internal clearance database for release of “products” like journal articles and includes feedback on these like citations -- automated and semi-auto

    • setup an EPA GitHub repo (currently private hoping to make some repos public)

    • working on a poster for VIVO conference -- compare and contrasts with academic VIVOs

  • Memorial (John & Max)

    • working on data ingest from existing PHP/MySQL system

    • meeting with owners of central authentication system (might be CAS)

  • Scripps (Michaeleen)

    • Scripps is planning an ingest of NIH grant data in the next month or so and we’re wondering whether to add the data in its own separate graph, or in kb2. In the past with publications, We have ingested any given dataset once and then manually curated the data in VIVO (and we'll likely stay with this for publications). Our preliminary grants ingest was into a separate graph which is nice as a provenance indication and for easy deletion and replacement of data when needed. However, editing the data in a non-kb2 graph via the VIVO application may not be fully supported in 1.5: the edited version of data is stored in kb2, original stays in grants graph, display reacts to both versions of the data. We're considering adopting a policy of periodically re-ingesting (into a grants graph) from NIH Reporter all relevant grants and not editing that data in VIVO. If anyone has input or experience on this topic, we would be happy to hear it.

  • Stony Brook (Erich)

    • working on Web ID auth module for VIVO that provides Web ID, but ran into a blank node issue in the provisioning -- found a workaround and would like to demo this next

  • Texas A&M (Violeta)

    • planning to attend the conference and workshops

    • working on a test instance with HR data ingest (about 1,300 faculty members from 4 colleges in CSV files) -- looking for examples on how to automatically ingest research area data for each faculty member already in VIVO.  Also is there somebody that has worked with the Lexvo terms LD, or maybe the Library of Congress Subject Headings LD for populating research area with terms from these LD triple stores?

  • Weill Cornell (Eliza & Paul)

    • working on automating a quality check on pub data, e.g. profiles of people who have left that have publications with no internal co-authors

    • supporting “display only” data via custom graphs? ListViewConfig??? Jim suggested the file graphs directory which is loaded at startup

  • UCSF (Eric)

    • Working at BU on ORCID integration, and looking into an OpenSocial integration to make it easier for faculty without an ORCID ID to create one -- would also support integration from research networking tool to ORCID profiles (?). Proposing a web service for complex ORCID integration with OpenSocial front end.
