Conference on Public Participation in ScientificResearch: August 4-5, 2012; Portland, Oregon.

With the rapid growth and innovation of public participation in scientific research (PPSR), practitioners are in need of avenue for sharing insights across projects and fields of study. This landmark event will convene science researchers, project leaders, educators, technology specialists, evaluators, and others from across many disciplines (including astronomy, molecular biology, human and environmental health, and ecology) to discuss advancing the field of PPSR. The PPSR Conference is being held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA), a venue that has long been supportive of citizen science and that always welcomes practitioners from diverse fields. Those interested in the PPSR field should visit the conference website for more information.
