Event description

Description

Citizen science games are games that allow players to contribute to real scientific research, without any scientific background. They are games in which players provide valuable data or solve complex scientific problems. They also help with diagnosing and curing diseases, as well as answering important research questions. A few examples include Foldit, Quantum Moves, EteRNA, and Project Discovery in EVE Online.

Are you running a citizen science project and thinking of adding game elements to it? Do you want to turn a scientific problem into a game? Are you developing a game and want to add some real science to it? Or are you simply curious about citizen science?

Join us for this networking event and meet with people who have worked on citizen science games. This will be a great occasion to share experiences and to discuss possible collaborations. More info about the keynote speaker coming soon!

The event is hosted by the Human Computation Institute, which developed Stall Catchers. Thanks to our sponsor, Pro Helvetia, we will be offering finger food. There will also be a free drink for our first 40 participants.
