Chile is becoming one of the major poles of astrobiology worldwide with active research groups at several major universities and observatories. An important activity of the astrobiology community in Chile is the organisation of a major biennial symposium of astrobiology in Chile bringing together astronomers, biologists, geologists, and climatologists from all over the world to discuss the most recent progress in the quest for exolife. AstroBio 2015 is the third symposium of this series, and will be held in Santiago, Chile from September 28 – October 2, 2015
The main aims of this symposium will be to:
1. Bring together the major astrobiology groups from the World and their South American counterparts
2. Foster exchanges across all the major disciplines involved in the field of astrobiology and in particular people working on climatology of Solar System planets;
3. Include a strong parallel outreach program aimed at informing the public about this relatively new discipline with the participation of the main experts in the world in the various disciplines.
