If you're in Boulder next Wednesday, January 16, please consider joining 
us at our Boulder Earth and Space Science Informatics Group meeting. 
Our speaker will be Stephan Williams, from CU Boulder's Office of 
Faculty Affairs.  Stephen's topic is:

"VIVO, VITRO, DataStar, and Beyond - The VIVO Project"

The VIVO project was started at Cornell University in 2003 as a faculty 
profiling system for Mann Library.  The profiling system that is VIVO 
was designed in two parts, VITRO the semantic engine that is ontology 
agnostic and VIVO the ontology specific pages and data for presenting 
faculty profiles.  This concept of a two tied system was taken into the 
third tier with location specific changes (Cornell and CU-Boulder) and 
ontologies that build upon VIVO (data star).  This talk will focus on 
the VIVO project as a whole, its history, its ancillary projects, and 
its future.  We'll also try to cover difficulties and lessons in 
semantic programming and the experiences of building ETL tools for 
semantic data.

Full meeting details are available at 

Also, if you or someone you know is coming to Boulder and might be 
interested in speaking with us, please let me know.  We're open to any 
kind of interesting meeting: presentations, panel discussions, posters, 
whatever.   To some extent we can handle remote speakers, so presenting 
that way is also an option.   Again, please let me know.
