Day 1 - Thursday 20th Feb @ the Royal Geographical Society, London
On the first day we will set the scene - hearing from some of the leading figures in citizen science and exploring 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, the arctic tundra, or urban jungles.
Day 2 - Friday 21st Feb @ University College London
On the second day we will look beneath the surface. Experts will discuss the hardware and software that powers citizen cyberscience. There will be panel discussions with citizen scientists about participation and engagement, and a showcase of new and future citizen science projects. In the afternoon we will switch over to Hack Day mode with workshops and an Open Space for working on ideas and challenges.
Day 3 - Saturday 22nd Feb @ University College London
On the third day we get down to business…together! The Hack Day continues with workshops about developing hardware and software prototypes, lightning talks with demos and mock-ups, and an Open Space to work on ideas and challenges. We will wrap up the day with a Hack Day Show & Tell and a Reception.
During the summit, there will be many opportunities to present short papers, run panels, organise workshops or provide showcase demonstrations. We would like to invite anyone interested in participating in this way to submit brief proposals of up to 750 words.
