We have received an NSF grant to sponsor a small NSF workshop to explore ethical issues in citizen science this summer. As a prelude to that workshop, we want to hold a CSA pre-workshop at the CSA conference to solicit input from a wide variety of CS participants and practitioners to inform the conference. We anticipate this CSA workshop being very discussion-intensive, including round table discussions and report-backs to the larger group. The result, we hope, will be insights into the current ethical culture in citizen science, plus a list of ethical concerns, a list of current ethical practices, and some priority-setting regarding the most urgent ethical challenges facing the field.

Intended Audience: Practitioners and participants interested in ethical issues arising in CS research

Fee: None; pre-registration required
