Summer School: Basics of Astrobiology
Just before the IAU General Assembly 2018 in Vienna, a summer school on the topic of ”Basics of Astrobiology” will be organized at the Observatory of the University of Vienna. The school is associated with the IAU Symposium 345 ”ORIGINS: From the Protosun to the First Steps of Life” (scheduled for 20-23 August). The training school will cover the bascis of astrobiology, from the formation of stars and planetary systems to the early conditions of life on planets, including atmospheres and planetary interiors, and the formation and early evolution of life itself.
The school is open to all interested students and professionals, with an emphasis on graduate students, postdocs and young scientists. Registration is open and there is no registration fee for this Training School! To register, please send a short e-mail containing your name, institute/university affiliation, and dietary constraints to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptance is on a ”first come first served basis”. Space is limited, so register soon to secure a seat. Lunch (including a vegetarian option) and coffee breaks will be offered free of charge at the venue.
We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna!"
