5th Austrian Citizen Science Conference 2019

ACSC2019 - (other acsc conferences)
26-28, June, 2019
Obergurgl, Austria
published March 27, 2020

In the summer of 2019, the 5th Austrian Citizen Science Conference was held in Tyrol. The University of Innsbruck and the Citizen Science Network Austria invited to Obergurgl, where the Citizen Science Community gathered from 26th to 28th June under the motto "Borders and Transitions" at over 2000m. Hardly any other place was as suitable as Obergurgl for the question of the limits of Citizen Science. Due to its geographical location at political and natural borders, Obergurgl inspired people to explore borders and transitions of and in Citizen Science and they could get to know in detail how to deal with these interfaces. Such border areas are not only boundaries, but also areas of transition and exchange. In this environment questions on how to best design the boundaries and transitions in Citizen Science to other methods and disciplines and how to make positive use of the border tensions where discussed: What is and what may Citizen Science do? Who determines what Citizen Science is allowed to do? What are the examples of boundaries in Citizen Science (projects)? Which inter- and transdisciplinary interfaces arise in Citizen Science projects? These and many other questions were debated in an open and appreciative atmosphere.
