On the 20-22 February, UCL together with the Citizen Cyberscience Centre in Geneva and partners from Citizen Cyberlab is organising the Citizen Cyberscience Summit. Since there is a lot of overlap between VGI and Citizen Science (with a lot of VGI can be describe as a special case of Citizen Science) so this summit may be of interest to many Action’s member. To find more and to register, see http://cybersciencesummit.org/ or https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/citizen-cyberscience-summit-registration-6975348455

Because the summit include session about geographic information, and workshops that are dedicated to the development of new technologies and the analysis of citizen science/VGI data, we are announcing a call for 5 applications for STSM for the period of the summit  – for a period of 5-10 days between 18-24 February. The funding will be about €1500 for each STSM and you should contact Muki Haklay as soon as possible to organise it – please note that the costs of attending the summit cannot be included in the support, but these were designed to be especially affordable (£50 for a student and £100 for an academic).
