  • Task Force Updates:

    • A new task force is forming.  VIVO in a Networked Research EcoSystem (NetRES), led by Jing Wang will consider approaches to data redundancy, including cross-linking VIVOs.  Results will be presented at a panel discussion at the VIVO Conference.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Jing Wang.
    • The Asset Inventory and Recommendations Task Force will have draft recommendations for community review shortly.  Thanks to all who helped review the asset inventory and those who contributed suggested recommendations.  VIVO has accumulated a large collection of materials.  The task force will recommend ways for VIVO to slim down and organize its assets.
    • The VIVO Contributed Software Task Force is also finalizing recommendations.  The group has reviewed methods for including contributed software in VIVO releases.
    • The VIVO Implementation Documentation Task Force is developing a high level project plan view of a VIVO implementation that includes project management, data management, outreach and engagement, and technical development.  The high level view will provide structure for materials supporting each activity.  In addition, the group has significantly improved the VIVO Glossary.

Theme: VIVO Roadmap Process

  • The VIVO Roadmap Process describes steps that will be taken to develop a roadmap incorporating the principles described above.  As steps are completed, the page will be updated.  The VIVO project director will be responsible for overseeing the process and engaging the community in the process.  A task force will be formed to take input from the community and develop a draft roadmap for consideration by the Steering Group and then by Leadership.  Status of the process will be reported each week in VIVO Updates.

  • We are entering week three of the public discussion of roadmap items.  Mike Conlon will be joining us today to participate in the discussion, and answer any questions you may have about the process.
