Citizen Science

Citizen science — the direct involvement of the public in scientific research — has been part of the scientific enterprise for over a century. The internet has elevated citizen science to a new level by connecting large networks of people around the world with shared scientific interests. This symposium focuses on the next level in the development of citizen science as a tool to advance scientific research and the common good. The next generation of citizen science projects will go further by distributing and opening up the entire scientific process, from the choice of topic, hypothesis generation and sample selection all the way to analysis, interpretation and dissemination.
