The conference will be a virtual meeting of various stakeholders such as practitioners of citizen science, researchers, educators, students, policy makers, and individual contributors, who actively engage in citizen science. This meeting will enable stakeholders to identify opportunities and challenges for increased quantity, quality, and geographical representation of citizen science projects related to biodiversity. Participants at the conference will discuss various themes such as project outcomes/success stories, data sharing policies, best practices as well as gaps and priorities in a series of invited talks, panel discussions and oral presentations.
