Eager to share your research findings? Learn new strategies for volunteer recruitment? Meet other people working to support volunteer-based scientific research?

A growing number of meetings and conferences are specifically addressing citizen science and other forms of public participation in scientific research.

We want to help you find a meeting where you can engage with other practitioners in this field. For example, if you're in the Northeast US, consider attending the Citizen Science Symposium May 12th and 13th, 2011, in Orono, Maine. And, no matter what your location or research area, mark your calendars for the first ever large-scale, open conference on public participation in scientific research, to be held in early August, 2012, in conjunction with the Ecological Society of America meeting in Portland, Oregon.

If you're hosting a meeting or coordinating a symposium, we can help distribute your call for abstracts, links to conference announcements, and even PDFs or summaries of proceedings, reaching thousands of interested practitioners. Email us, and we will be happy to share your information.

Citizen science, volunteer monitoring, participatory action research... this site supports organizers of all initiatives where public participants are involved in scientific research.
