We are really happy to announce that the 22-23 April 2013 there will be a
Citizen Cyberscience Workshop at University of Geneva
and several of the researchers and developers of the project will participate.
The venue of the event is: Université de Genève, Campus Battelle (Route de Drize 7, Carouge), Building D, auditoire D185
(This course is part of a series supported by the Conférence Universitaire de Suisse Occidentale)
What is this course about?
This course introduces in a hands-on way a variety of approaches to doing online citizen science, including volunteer computing, volunteer thinking and volunteer sensing. It explores the contributions and the motivations of the volunteers who participate in such projects, as well as the sort of scientific and social impact that these projects are having.
Who should join it?
Basically, anyone with an interest in online citizen science. Including but not restricted to: computer science and computer engineering students who want to learn about the latest trends in open source tools for browser-based science; science students who are developing or want to develop apps for the general public to participate in their research; human-machine interface researchers interested in games with a scientific purpose; social scientists studying online social networks and communities.
What will be achieved?
