CitSciDay 2018 is just around the corner - it officially kicks of tomorrow, April 14th, with hundreds of citizen science events happening worldwide. Starting tomorrow, the Human Computation Institute is launching a coordinated “CitSciDay HERO” challenge, which will invite everyone to sample various citizen science projects in several thematic tracks, including a special biomedical citizen science mission.
Everyone who registers in the participating projects will earn digital badges and use them to complete badge missions. The ultimate CitSciDay heroes who complete all missions will be able to claim the “CitSciDay HERO” digital badge!

Convergence Research at NSF

NSF identifies Convergence Research as having two primary characteristics: Research driven by a specific and compelling problem. Convergence Research is generally inspired by the need to address a specific challenge or opportunity, whether it arises from deep scientific questions or pressing societal needs.
Deep integration across disciplines. As experts from different disciplines pursue common research challenges, their knowledge, theories, methods, data, research communities and languages become increasingly intermingled or integrated. New frameworks, paradigms or even disciplines can form sustained interactions across multiple communities.
