In the heartland of America, along the twisting Mississippi, we will gather for Citizen Science 2017. Join us May 17th – 20th, 2017 as we pour together to navigate the rushing waters of citizen science.
We are a field cascading, tumbling, and turning toward a newer, more public version of science. With great momentum and energy, the citizen science movement has taken on a life all its own, independent of disciplines and resistant to disciplining. As tributaries of related work join together they simultaneously strengthen and muddy our disciplinary waters, and in their wake we are left to determine when to paddle upstream and when to let the current propel us forward.
This citizen science conference is a confluence of our collective interests and struggles, and together—welcoming the diverse group of researchers, practitioners, community organizations, and participants—we invite you to join us at the St. Paul RiverCentre alongside the Mighty Mississippi.
