Catch CCP sharing findings from EVE Online's citizen science at GDC 2017

At GDC 2017 next year, CCP Games will share the one-year findings of 'Project Discovery', the EVE Online-integrated research effort that's become one of the largest citizen science projects of 2016.

Organizers of the 2017 Game Developers Conference, the largest event for game industry professionals in the world, are pleased to announce another remarkable talk taking place at the show about a very important topic: science.

Specifically, scientific data and learnings gleaned from citizen science projects integrated into CCP Games' MMO game EVE Online. The initiative, 'Project Discovery', was launched during GDC 2016. Next year, CCP's Bergur Finnbogason and MMOS Sarl chief Attila Szantner will share the results in a talk on "'Project Discovery': Lessons From Scientific Research via 'EVE Online'

Project Discovery has since become one of the biggest citizen science efforts of 2016, generating over 14 million protein location classifications by EVE Online players. So come and hear about the story of the first year, the results and future plans for the project. You might just walk away inspired, with new perspective on how your own game can contribute to the advancement of science.

And don't miss the opportunity to save money by registering early for the conference -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is January 25, 2017. GDC 2017 itself will take place February 27th - March 3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
