"The world has come a long way since a screensaver called SETI@home was launched in 1999, enabling anyone with a PC to help in the search for radio signals from extraterrestrial civilizations. Today ‘citizen cyberscience’ encompasses a huge range of scientific research, from simulating climate change to folding proteins. This is the cutting edge of the Open Science movement, making scientific research not just open and accessible, but participative as well.

In this panel, several leading exponents of citizen cyberscience will discuss how their projects are producing open knowledge in a wide variety of domains, and in particular the sort that can contribute to the social sciences and economics."
