Meet OpenScientist in Portland!

This weekend I will be attending the 2012 Public Participation in Scientific Research (PPSR) Conference in beautiful Portland, Oregon. It is taking place August 4-5 as part of the Ecological Society of America 2012 Annual Meeting, and is sponsored by the good folks with and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

The best part is I've taken the recent posts on identifying the Keys to Successful Citizen Science Projects and turned it into a poster. So stop by on Sunday and we can talk about my findings and your thoughts on the project. Much of it has been discussed here but there are other nuggets still waiting to be unveiled. It will eventually be posted both here and on the conference web site after I've incorporated the good comments people give me. Yet another reason for you to stop on by.

See you in Portland!

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who stopped by and all the illuminating conversations we had!  It was very successful and extra copies of the poster quickly ran out.  But for anyone who missed it, a copy of the poster is available here and should also be available through Citizen Science Central (allong with many of the other posters) in the near future.
