SC CTSI Team Members Present at International VIVO Conference
SC CTSI's eHome team presented two posters focused on advancing research networking approaches.
Over 115 authors from five continents presented at the 2014 VIVO conference focused on opportunities created by advancing data sharing and team science. Topics ranged from implementation to ontologies, visualization, and collaboration in research and scholarship.
Large research organizations have become increasingly interested in VIVO and other Research Networking Systems (RNSs) as a means of addressing multidisciplinary research challenges, fostering collaboration, and increasing the visibility of individual investigators.
An Automated Approach to Promote Research Networking Systems More Efficiently
The first poster presentation by SC CTSI eHome team members Anirudha Kumar, Praveen Angyan, Francis Ukpolo, and Katja Reuter, PhD, focused on a more effective solution to increase the adoption of RNSs by generating cross-links without requiring a time-intensive manual approach.
The team developed a Name Linking Application (NLA) that utilizes natural language processing to identify researchers' names on web pages (e.g., University news, directory, department pages) and link them to their respective researcher page. View the poster here
Promoting Cross-Institutional Collaborations by Interlinking Research Networking Systems
The second poster presentation in collaboration with colleagues from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) at the University of California, San Francisco, highlighted a new approach to connect RNSs through relevant hyperlinks on the profile pages themselves. eHome team members Praveen Angyan, Aditya Arun Vaidya, John Burgos, and Katja Reuter, PhD, are among the co-authors.
