The Conference will investigate the role and opportunities for active citizen participation in policy making and the new technologies, methods and advanced modelling to support Citizen Observatories.

The Conference will be the stage for all the ongoing citizen science and crowdsourcing initiatives.

COWM2018 will bring together social scientists, surveyors, engineers, scientists, and other professionals from many countries involved in research and development activities in a wide range of technical and management topics related to citizen observatories and their impacts on society. It will be an opportunity to discover how to maximize the benefit of data emerging from citizen observatories.
