Geo-Wiki at the Citizen
Cyberscience Summit

The 3rd Citizen CyberScience Summit will bring together researchers working on citizen science for 3 days of talks, sharing of experiences, creating new projects through the Hack Day and ThinkCamp, and showcasing examples to the general public. 

On the first day, Leo Bottril will give a presentation at the Royal Geographical Society on the ongoing citizen science activities currently underway in the NORAD-funded Forest DRC project.

On day two, an overview of the Geo-Wiki project and the Cropland Capture game will be presented by IIASA researcher Linda See as part of a session on different citizen science projects. This will provide an opportunity to exchange best practice with some of the most successful examples of citizen science currently happening. Geo-Wiki will also feature during a two-hour informal reception in which the general public are invited to learn more about ongoing citizen science projects. The public will have a chance to try out Geo-Wiki and play our latest Cropland Capture game.

On day three, IIASA developer Mathias Karner will participate in the Hack Day and lend his mobile app development expertise to creating new solutions for citizen science.
