AbGradCon 2017 at Charlottesville, VA

June 5, 2017 at 5pm to June 7, 2017 at 6pm
AbGradCon 2017Mon, Jun 5 at 4:30pm - Wed, Jun 7 at 5:00pm MDTAbGradCon (Astrobiology Graduate Conference) provides a unique setting for astrobiologically-inclined graduate students and early career researchers to come together to share their research, collaborate, and network. AbGradCon 2017 marks the 13th year of this conference--each time in a different place and organized by a different group of students, but always with the original charter as a guide.Since it is organized and attended by only graduate students, post docs, and select undergraduates (see below), AbGradCon is an ideal venue for the next generation of career astrobiologists to form bonds, share ideas, and discuss the issues that will shape the future of the field.This conference will be broadcast via Livestream on SAGANet.

ELSI Symposium V at Kuramae Hall, Tokyo Institute for Technology

January 10, 2017 at 6pm to January 13, 2017 at 7pm
The Earth Life Science Institute (ELSI)will be holding its 5th Symposium on the 11-13 Jan 2017, on the broad topic of the emergence of the biosphere. We welcome every interested scientists to join us to discuss this exciting topic.The emergence of biosphere on Earth, and possibly elsewhere in the universe, remains one of the great unsolved scientific questions. Research into the origin and subsequent evolution of life takes place across an array of scientific disciplines, including but not limited to planetary sciences, astronomy, theoretical physics, chemistry and biology. The goal of the Symposium is to provide a forum for diverse perspectives and unify the fragmentary knowledge stemming from a single discipline. Accordingly, the program features talks and discussions aimed at understanding the nature of life, constraints of habitability, early Earth environments, systems chemistry, structure and attributes of early life. The Symposium will gather eminent investigators as well as…See More

The problem with panspermia is that if life on Earth came from some other location in outer space, where did it come before that and so on with no end. Water, the universally…
