Organizers of the "Public Participation in Scientific Research" (PPSR) conference announce that registration and abstract submission are now available. The conference will be convened 4-5 August 2012 in Portland, Oregon. It is being held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA), which is scheduled 6-10 August 2012.
With the rapid growth and innovation of PPSR, there is a need for sharing insights across projects and fields of study. This landmark event will convene science researchers, project leaders, educators, technology specialists, evaluators, and others from across many disciplines (including astronomy, molecular biology, human and environmental health, and ecology) to discuss advancing the field of PPSR.
Poster abstracts will feature highly in the conference and will allow extended informal discussions and active participation by authors and coauthors. There will be three separate 1.5-hour poster sessions.
