Meeting Announcement: Impacts and their Role in the Evolution of Life

The conference “Impacts and their Role in the Evolution of Life” will be held in Tällberg, Sweden, 10-13 June 2019.

Topics covered by the conference will range from the role of impacts in the early history of the Solar System over impacts physics, the characterisation of impactors (asteroids, meteorites, comets etc) and impact sites to the role impacts could have played in the emergence and evolution of life and their possible threat to life on Earth. Two further important aspects will be discussed: the geoconservation of impact sites as well as the use of impacts in education and outreach in order to get the general public interested in science.

The conference will be held at Hotel Dalecarlia in the picturesque village of Tällberg in the Siljan crater area with good connections to Stockholm International Airport. Excursions to geologically interesting sites in the area are planned.

We are looking forward to receiving your contribution to our event. Since bursaries for students and early career scientists will be available we would kindly ask you to forward this invitation to possibly interested people.

Deadline for abstract submission is March 31st, 2019. For further information about the event please check the conference website:
