From the 6th to 10th of September, the European Citizen Science Conference 2020 by ECSA will be held exclusively online in Trieste, Italy.

As members of ECSA and platform for Citizen Science Apps, we are glad to be part of an online session about "Technology Design". On Tuesday, 8th of September, we will discuss how design research can lead to fun and useful insights and delve into the practice of designing and developing citizen science technologies, exemplifying the process through a live demonstration of the collaborative SPOTTERON App platform. In an e-Poster Session, on the 10th of September, project leader Philipp Hummer will talk about "Synergies by design and Citizen Science on the SPOTTERON Platform". If you are planning to attend the talks, you can register and join the live events through the ECSA Conference Website by clicking on the desired sessions below.
