ASTERICS Citizen Science Workshop

from to (Europe/Rome)
at Villa Bazzoni, Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica ( 'The Observatory' )
I. N. A. F. - Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica - Osservatorio Astronomico Centralino, Via Bazzoni 2, 34143 Trieste, Italy
Description

The objective of this 2nd workshop is to review the results of the 1st workshop as well as design and prototype mass participation experiments linked to some or all of the astronomy ESFRI facilities and their precursors / pathfinders.

This will be a “working” workshop where we will take ideas for citizen science experiments relevant to ASTERICS, discuss their potential, and prototype the best.

Useful Information:

Costs: The workshop is free to attend (with lunch, coffee breaks and the working dinner provided) but you will need to pay your own additional meals, travel and accommodation costs.

Travel Advice: Getting to Villa Bazzoni
