> learned from successful education and outreach programs and public  
> engagement events that promote greater understanding of geoscience  
> content and protocols through participation.
> In recent years, there has been a proliferation of programs and  
> projects designed to connect researchers with ‘citizen scientists.’  
> The Internet has made participation in citizen science projects  
> accessible to a wide audience of interested lay persons. As a  
> result, tens of thousands of citizen scientists regularly contribute  
> to a variety of research projects in the geosciences.
> Submissions that address citizen science planning, marketing,  
> recruiting, retention, web site design, data entry, data quality  
> control, coordination and management, communication between  
> participants and researchers, project evaluation, and final  
> reporting back to participants are encouraged. Abstracts are  
> encouraged that represent the diversity of participants found in  
> citizen science projects including K-12 school groups, informal  
> science centers, individuals, communities, universities, and  
> laboratories.
