Due to the still unpredictable situation and the great success of last year’s meeting, we have decided to go again for an online-only “Virtual AbGradE 2021”. So we are pleased to invite you to join our virtual symposium, which will take place on September 2-3, 2021 (right before the EANA2021 conference)!

The symposium is open to all early-career astrobiologists – from undergraduates to postdocs. It will be a great opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of this diverse scientific field and to present your work in front of a friendly audience of peers.

It will include keynote speakers, contributed talks and posters. “Virtual AbGradE 2021” will be a chance to show that the Astrobiology research family is still vibrant and motivated despite the COVID‑19 pandemic.

We hope that the virtual nature of this meeting will allow many of our colleagues from around the world to join. The symposium will take place in the afternoon of Thursday 2nd and in the morning of Friday 3rd (CEST) to account for the time zone differences.

We will also premiere our community MS Teams working space through an icebreaker on Thursday morning, to which you are all welcome!

Abstract submission is open until July 31, registration until August 31.

Detailed information about the abstract submission process (including a template) will be sent out via email after registration. When setting up the schedule for the meeting, we will keep in mind that our attendees and speakers will be situated in different time zones. All registered participants will receive an e-mail with the login data in due time (at the latest 1-2 days before the meeting).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. In addition, you can check our Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as this website, for any news and updates related to the meeting.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us in cyberspace for “Virtual AbGradE 2021”!
