We are back! For our first in person event in two years, AbGradE teams up with EPEC for EPSC2022, expanding network opportunities for early career scientists and students.
This year we invite you on Sunday, September 18th for a symposium-style meeting with a program comprising of contributed talks from early career scientists, keynote presentations and an update from AbGradE and EPEC regarding our activities and future events.
The event will be held 10 am to 4pm at the Palacio de Congresos de Granada, Room Andalucia 2. A detailed program and further details will be shared at the beginning of September.
For contributed talks, a submission of a short abstract (max. 200 words) is required until August 24th. We invite early careers to present their work which they either present as a poster at EPSC22 or any other project not presented at EPSC22. Letters of acceptance will be sent out by August 31st.
Astrobiology has two principal goals: 1) to learn how life began and evolved on Earth, and 2) to establish whether life exists elsewhere in the universe. Understanding the cosmic evolution of molecules that carry the elements C, H, O, P, S and N is central to this quest. Today we know that there is a rich and complex chemistry pervading the Interstellar medium and that this is retained amidst star and planet formation being observed in cometary bodies. However, the mechanisms by which such molecules are synthesized and the complexity that can be achieved remains subject of considerable uncertainty and provides a challenge to both the laboratory and modelling communities. In this talk I will review what we know, what we need to know and why we have not made the progress we expected in the last decade. I will then discuss some ideas of how we can overcome current challenges and achieve these two goals.
We would like to thank the CEO of Hellas Sat Χριστόδουλος Πρωτοπαπάς for sharing our event poster, and also for his kind words on our design. In addition, we are very happy to host the first Greek woman space laywer.🚀🚀🛰🛰🛰🚀🚀
DEADLINE EXTENSION As a result of the interest in our upcoming Space Law and Governance event we are extending the abstract deadline to 23.59 CET on WEDNESDAY 24th MARCH! We have 6 excellent invited speakers confirmed (announcement soon), so this is a great chance to present your work alongside figures from government, industry and academia! Join nearly 100 attendees who have already registered at forms.gle/ydrEMWUUXE2FcDMV6
• Any student preparing his PhD thesis in Astronomy, Geology, Chemistry, Biology or History/Philosophy of sciences in France or any other country. • Any students or young scientist wishing to acquire an interdisciplinary training in astrobiology to complete their initial training and to be able to address issues about the origins of life on Earth, its evolution and its distribution in the Universe.
The program of RED’21/Astrobiology Introductory Course is complementary to that of RED’19, however it is not necessary to have followed it to participate in this new school.
