Project Discovery Exoplanets, the second iteration of the citizen science mini-game in EVE Online, the biggest massively multiplayer online sci-fi game, officially became one of the most active citizen science projects ever. Since 2016, in collaboration with scientists from the Human Protein Atlas and University of Geneva, EVE Online players have made millions of biological and astronomical classifications. Come and hear how the project was initiated, the results so far, and what future plans Massively Multiplayer Online Science have.

About the speaker:
Attila Szantner feels very lucky to have combined his two passions with Massively Multiplayer Online Science: citizen science and games. He is based in the beautiful small village of Gryon, Switzerland, where he founded MMOS with Bernard Revaz. For almost two decades, he has worked in IT in Hungary, and in 2002 he co-founded iWiW, which was the biggest social networking site in Hungary with almost 5 million users at its height.
