Metadata for Machines A big thank you to GoFair ( for inviting me to participate in their inaugural Metadata for Machines (M4M) workshop in Leiden, October 15-16. The workshop included people from RDA, Bioportal, European funding agencies, librarians, software developers, and many others in conversations regarding FAIR machine-readable metadata for the scholarship and science. The CEDAR project ( was highlighted, along with VIVO as potential components of a FAIR metadata infrastructure.

VIVO Camp Thanks to the participants and instructors (Violeta Ilik, Huda Khan, and Benjamin Gross) for a great camp at the beautiful Butler Library on the campus of Columbia University in New York City. The camp provides an opportunity to learn more about VIVO, the VIVO ontology, and implementation of VIVO. We look forward to hearing about the great work the campers will produce!
