Citizen science has proven with a number of successful projects that we are able to harness the power of communities outside traditional academia to support research. We currently have three separate types of project, in volunteer computing, image recognition and understanding, and volunteer data collection. How best can we create the citizen science projects of the future? How can we use more effectively those we have currently?

The event will be held at The Royal Society London. Please see the venue page for information and directions.
