- The VIVO community is becoming increasingly international. The German community (VIVO-DE) has been firmly established for several years and has found a regular and well-functioning medium for networking and exchange in the VIVO Workshop, which has been held (almost) annually since 2015. In recent years, an annual survey has been conducted among the participants, which asks, among other things, about development priorities for the VIVO software. In this lightning talk, the results of the survey from the 5. VIVO-Workshop 2021 on 23 and 24 March 2021 will be briefly presented.
