Hi everyone,

I wanted to pass along this email from the VIVO team about the upcoming conference ( and point out a few things that might be of interest for libraries, especially in the context of the CTSAs.

     * There will be workshops from BOTH the VIVO and Profiles platforms about their systems and how to get things up and running - and ongoing efforts on the systems. These sessions will cover technical, policy, and data issues.
     * There is also a workshop on tracking and evaluation activities for CTSA-related work - a role that I know many of us are either involved with or wish to do at our own sites. Read about all of the workshops at
     * Keynotes ( and Invited Speakers ( have been set (with one more invited talk to be announced which relates to science and technology impact)
     * The list of accepted presentations will be published later this week and will be linked from the site. The accepted presentation topics include: Open Science and Data, Research Networking Systems (RNS, namely: VIVO, Profiles, and SciVal Experts), Tracking and Evaluation, Bibliographic Data, Team Science,  Visualization, world-wide RNS implementations, Cross-site search, ORCID, CASRAI, FundRef, Ontologies and the Integrated Semantic Framework (ISF), and data sources and providers (Symplectic Elements is one which works with a lot of libraries on these and similar efforts).

On a personal note, I would love to see how some of the different libraries are supporting their research Networking Systems (any flavor of system: VIVO, Profiles, Experts, or other; any level of support: from outreach and education activities, to ontology development or even project stewardship).

The early-bird registration rate ends on June 21 and the late breaking call for posters ends TOMORROW June 12 at 5pm.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Subject: Last Chance - Late Breaking Call for Posters Closes Tomorrow

Last Chance to Submit: Late Breaking Call for Posters

We want to hear from you! Don't miss out on the opportunity to submit a poster for the 2013 VIVO Conference program. As we typically do, we've opened the call for posters back up to encourage the latest research to be shared at the annual conference.

We're interested in any of the topics listed in the original call for proposals, but we'd like to put out a special request for posters from implementation sites describing your experiences, as well as topics that lend themselves to the open structure of a poster session, such as technical topics, policy issues, and ideas and applications for visualization, analysis, and reuse of Linked Open Data.  The poster sessions present a great opportunity for sharing and dialog - so bring your ideas, challenges, and approaches to share with us.

Read the official CALL FOR PAPERS at  for submission details and visit   to submit your abstract today.

Deadline: Tomorrow, June 12 at 5:00pm EST.
