Crowdsourcing scientific knowledge production (Citizen Cyber Science) has celebrated its first wave of successes. It is sometimes seen as an unexpected new way of doing science in the future. CCS is often formulated and presented in the form of scientific discovery games, involving the interaction and coordination of people and groups through online platforms.

With these platforms it becomes possible for the first time to monitor and understand the processes of knowledge production on a quantitative basis. This workshop brings together experts from a wide range of fields to discuss the question how these developments can be used for a next-generation science and education.

The workshop will focus on issues of next-generation science and education, designed serendipity, machine learning, massive data analysis, online game design, and sociological implications.
