Ontology Editing and Creating Semantic Applications

As an integrated ontology editor and semantic web application, Vitro provides the flexible, ontology-­neutral technology at the core of VIVO. This workshop will introduce Vitro as an independent application through a combination of demonstrations and hands­‐on exercises. Workshop participants will gain an appreciation of Vitro’s power and flexibility as a tool for ontology and data management, data browsing, and searching. They will acquire practical skills in installing, configuring, and using the software to create a working prototype of a semantic web application.  Bring an idea for an ontology-driven application, explore iterative refinements to an ontology and simple software customizations, and gain insights into how VIVO builds on Vitro.
