More than 250 proposals from scientists, practitioners, activists, funders, policy makers, non-governmental organizations, artists, and interested citizens in the field of Citizen Science from all over the world have been submitted! The Conference Committee ensured by reviewing these proposals that the conference will be highlighting the citizen.

Why do citizens collaborate? What is their motivation to volunteer? Do they develop a deeper interest and engagement in science? Do they have suggestions for improving collaborations?

We have been developing an interesting programme with many interactive sessions. Check out our preliminary conference programme (formats' description).
