CSA 2017 has ended
Welcome to the interactive web schedule for CitSci2017! For tips on how to navigate this site, visit the "Helpful Info" section. To return to the main Citizen Science Association website, go to: http://citizenscience.org/association/conferences/citsci2017/. All events will be held at the St. Paul RiverCentre unless otherwise noted.

Adding agenda items to your schedule through this app does not sign you up for a session. If an agenda item says "pre-registration required" or charges an additional fee, you need to add the item to your registration through the online registration system (https://citizenscience.member365.com/ then select "manage event registrations"), or stop by the registration desk onsite. 

The conference schedule is hosted by SCHED which allows you to search within the schedule, and filter the schedule to show items only occurring on a certain date or within a track. To view only a certain type of presentation, locate the heading "Filter By Type" on the right side bar, below the search box, then hover over "Main Agenda Item" to view some of the types of agenda items. If you click on "Workshop," you’ll see only the Workshops on the schedule. Or, click on a presentation grouping such as "A-09: Evolving How We Think About Our Practice" to view the talks within that track and read their abstracts. You can also build your own schedule by creating a free account with SCHED by selecting "SIGN UP" in the top right corner when viewing on a desktop, or in the left navigation bar when viewing on your mobile device. Watch the "how-to" video to learn more about navigating this schedule. https://csa2017.sched.com/help
