If you don't have plans yet for next Saturday, the 22nd of February, we'd like to invite you to join us at the Citizen Science Hack Day that is part of the 3rd Citizen Cyberscience Summit.
The Hack Day features a number of exciting Challenges, ranging from the ISS Dark Skies Image Challenge to the UNOSAT Disaster Response Challenge.
There are many workshops that you might find interesting, as well as a closing Keynote talk on Citizen Science in the Age of the Great Disruption, from Jeff Howe of Wired.
Naturally, you're welcome to come the whole three days of course! One of the other Summit elements you might be interested in is the Citizen Science Cafe that we're running on Friday evening in the same location as the Hack Day, which will bring together the Scientists and the Volunteers of a number of prominent Citizen Science projects.
THE HACK DAY DETAILS
Date: Saturday, February 22nd
Venue: Chadwick Building, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
THE HACK DAY SCHEDULE
9:00: Hack Day Launch in G04 of the Chadwick Building (read more) After you’ve heard the pitches from the various Challenge leaders (including open idea pitches on the day), come and join the conversation at any of the Challenge tables. Feel free to move on to other tables as well throughout the day - vote with your feet!
Levels of involvement can range from sharing your insights and expertise to aid idea generation, forming teams to develop an idea further, or getting stuck into some code to whip up a bit of a prototype. The structure is free flowing and open so that anyone can roam around, dip in and out of workshops, or dig in for a full day of idea development.
4:00: Hack Day Show & Tell in B05 of the Chadwick Building (read more)
We hope that you can join us,
