VIVA is a one-day symposium on NMR held on the west coast of Canada.  This year it will be held on campus at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  The purpose is to gather NMR users: researchers, students, NMR facility managers to share research results and strengthen ties within the NMR community in the Canadian West and the US Pacific Northwest. The format is informal, and students are encouraged to present talks or posters of their research results.  There are prizes for the best student talk and poster, sponsored by the Canadian Journal of Chemistry.
