The Astrobiology Graduate Conference (AbGradCon) is an annual meeting organised by, and aimed at, early career researchers (PhD students and post-docs) working within the diverse field of astrobiology. The conference seeks to provide a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere to allow early-career researchers with perhaps little conference-going experience the opportunity to present their science to their peers in a professional conference environment. Now in its 12th year, and AbGradCon 2015 will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from the 19th to the 23rd of July, 2015.
With sponsorship from the NASA Astrobiology Institute the organisers are seeking to attract a sizeable international contingent in order to showcase the diversity of astrobiology research taking place outside of the USA. In light of this, travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for international attendees.
