EANA & AbGradE 2016

The European Astrobiology Network Association (EANA) 2016 meeting will be held in Athens on 27th-30th September. Sessions will include talks on any astrobiological discipline. An optional field trip to Milos Island will take place after the conference (if there is sufficient interest). Registration and abstract submission deadline: 31st July.

The 2016 AbGradE (Astrobiology Graduates in Europe) Symposium 2016 will be held directly before EANA 2016 in Athens between 25th-27th September.

AbGradE is an independent association with the main goal of promoting scientific networking among early-career astrobiologists. It was initiated by EANA and it is managed by an enthusiastic group of PhD students and post-docs that are responsible for organising activities that foster networking as well as give a broader background in the different disciplines that Astrobiology comprises. A bi-annual symposium based in Europe is the main gathering for this purpose. In the years between the two symposia, AbGradE organises a one-day workshop in line with EANA’s topic. Everyone is welcome to join and participate in AbGradE!

More information will be available in the near future. See

  1. Interesting, but I suppose not really for an old person who has been studying Astrobiology and Astronomy online for a few years?

    • These meetings tend to aim topics at a PhD level or higher. However, having said that, the interdisciplinary nature of astrobiology conferences can often (though not always) mean that talks are pitched to a non-specialist level, so it might be worth contacting the organisers to get their opinion.
