An earlier symposium presented programs across the globe that are using the citizen science approach for a variety of taxa that address issues of population and community monitoring, species interactions and phenology changes.

In this workshop we will discuss and document issues related to engaging the community, mobile applications, sampling methods, sampling effort, data and metadata models, and data quality.  As an outcome of the symposium and workshop we will write a white paper on the role of citizen science in biodiversity monitoring that addresses its accomplishments and challenges.
