Day 1 - Thursday 20th Feb @ the Royal Geographical Society, London

On the first day we will set the scene - hearing from some of the leading

the undertaking of "extreme" citizen science projects, in rain forests, the
arctic tundra, or urban jungles.

Day 2 - Friday 21st Feb @ University College London

On the second day we will look beneath the surface. Experts will discuss
the hardware and software that powers citizen cyberscience. There will be

the afternoon we will switch over to Hack Day mode with workshops and an
Open Space for working on ideas and challenges.

Day 3 - Saturday 22nd Feb @ University College London

On the third day we get down to business…together! The Hack Day continues

During the summit, there will be many opportunities to present short
