The 10th annual Astrobiology Graduate Conference (AbGradCon), an interdisciplinary conference organized by and for graduate students and early career scientists, will be held at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from June 10th - 14th, 2013. Pre- and early-career scientists (astronomers, biologists, chemists, educators, engineers, geologists, planetary scientists and social scientists) whose research addresses a topic relevant to astrobiology are encouraged submit for oral and / or poster presentations. Abstract submission for AbGradCon 2013 is open now, and closes March 1, 2013. The submission form can be found here: For more information and updates, visit

To understand the origin of life, how life has persisted on the Earth for over 3.5 billion years and whether we might find it elsewhere, requires that we understand how life and molecules adapt to extreme environments. The 5th UK Astrobiology conference, supported by the UK Space Agency, will explore molecules and life in extremes and the implications for the search for extraterrestrial life.
The conference welcomes astronomers, biologists, chemists, physicists and other disciplines that intersect with astrobiology.

This event marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Astrobiology Society of Britain.


Sessions will include: Mars science and exploration, astrobiology outreach, icy bodies research, life in extreme environments, molecules in extreme environments.
