Summer School 2018: Citizen Science in Theory and Practice
Date: 15/10/2018 - 19/10/2018
Location: Hinterrinnbach 17, 4645 Grünau im Almtal
Citizen science (CS) is becoming increasingly important within the research community, as one can gain large, spatially and temporally scaled data sets. But how does one get citizen scientists interested and how should one deal with big data? What makes a successful study and where does one publish the data?
Apart from keynote talks from international experts, participants will get hands-on experiences associated with the respective topics and time to network with the invited speakers and other participants. All relevant topics associated with Citizen Science, from planning a study, funding and designing apps to analysing big scattered data sets and publishing results, will be covered. The summer school will be held in cooperation with the Konrad Lorenz Research Station and the Cumberland game park Grünau, which have already gained a lot of experience with Citizen Science projects.
