Citizen Cyberscience Summit to be organized 16-18 February 2012

3 Jan 2012 London - The Second London Citizen Cyberscience Summit, involving volunteer computing and other forms of citizen science, will be held 16-18 February 2012 in London.

The London Citizen Cyberscience Summit in 2010 brought together for the first time volunteers and scientists from a wide range of Web-based science projects, ranging from volunteer computing (SETI@home, ClimatePrediction.net) to volunteer thinking (GalaxyZoo, Herbaria@home) to volunteer sensing (EpiCollect, NoiseTube) and much more. Historians, journalists, teachers and businessmen all brought their angle on citizen cyberscience to the event. Above all, it was a chance for the some of the millions of volunteers who make citizen cyberscience so successful to tell their story.

The Second London Citizen Cyberscience Summit, 16-18 February 2012, promises to be just as pioneering in its scope, and even more innovative in its format - ranging from classical academic seminar on the first day, through to full-fledged open hardware hackfest on the last. It will take place at the Royal Geographical Society (on the 16th) and at UCL (17th and 18th), in London.

On Day 1, the scene will be set. You can eet some of the leading figures in citizen science and explore the process of public engagement and participation, outreach of citizen science to the developing world, and the undertaking of "extreme" citizen science projects, in rain forests, arctic tundra, or urban jungles.

On Day 2, a look beneath the surface will be presented. Experts will discuss the hardware and software that powers citizen cyberscience. There will be a panel discussion with citizen scientists on why participation and engagement are useful, and a showcase of new and future citizen science projects. In the evening, the next day's hands-on sessions will be planned.

On Day 3, it is getting down to business together. This will include further unconference sessions, and a hackfest for development of hardware and software prototypes, demos and mock-ups, with awards for the most innovative creations.
