BioVeL partners are pleased to invite you to "BioVeL in Practice and in Future" November 13, 2014, 9:00-4:30, Institut Océanographique, 195 rue Saint Jacques, Paris 5e.
This one-day event aims at sharing with participants what BioVeL did and what they’ve learned during their efforts to build a virtual laboratory for biodiversity research. They will also present their plans for the future and invite the audience to take a role in it.
BioVeL is a pilot implementation of some of the core ideas from the LifeWatch Preparatory Phase. In the past three years they’ve worked with the biodiversity research community to construct, test, and revise some essential elements of a robust e-infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem research.
At the meeting BioVeL want to present the results they have produced and the experience they’ve gained, as well as discussing the coming tasks for their community. The event will be structured around the three key goals that encapsulate the BIH2013 initiative:
- Integration: Making better use of existing data and tools
- Cooperation: Working together towards a holistic understanding of biodiversity and ecosystems
- Promotion: Informatics leadership to serve the needs of science and society The community needs to keep working together to achieve these goals.
