VIVO Updates -- Is VIVO FAIR? Plus camp, and 1.10 testing

VIVO Camp  Summer may be almost over, but that doesn't mean you've missed a chance to attend camp.  VIVO Camp will be held November 9-11 in beautiful Durham North Carolina.  Join Julia TrimmerGraham TriggsVioleta IlikPaul Albert, and Mike Conlon for 2.5 days of training regarding VIVO – planning a VIVO project, acquiring data for VIVO, data management for VIVO, VIVO ontology, and much more.  See what others are doing, share thoughts about your project with your classmates and with VIVO experts.  Registration is open here:  https://goo.gl/ocvznb  See you in Durham!

VIVO 1.10 Upgrading to the next version of VIVO will require that you export your triple store using a provided utility, upgrade your system, and reload your triple store using a second provided utility.  If you are the system administrator for your VIVO, please make sure you have tested VIVO 1.10 beta, available at GitHub and are comfortable with the upgrade process.  Please report any issues with the beta upgrade at vivo-tech@googlegroups.com If you are the project manager or data manager for your VIVO site, please make sure you have met as a team with your system administrator and developers to make sure that the upgrade process has been tested and that the consequences of the upgrade are well understood by all.

We have preliminary documentation regarding testing available here:  https://goo.gl/gGVvbv  Please report your findings with this process to vivo-tech@googlegroups.com

Is VIVO FAIR?  How do the FAIR data principles – data should be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable – apply to the data in VIVO systems?  This month's blog post considers this question along with things we each might do to make VIVO data more FAIR.  See Is VIVO FAIR?

No interest group call this Thursday.  August has five Thursdays.  We have four interest groups that meet on the first (Outreach and Engagement Interest Group), second (Development Interest Group), third (Implementation Interest Group), and fourth (Apps and Tools Interest Group) Thursday respectively.  No call this Thursday.  

Go VIVO!
