Astrobiology Graduate Conference (AbGradCon 2024) Is Underway

The Astrobiology Graduate Conference (AbGradCon) is dedicated to early-career scientists who study the complex and diverse topics that the astrobiology field encompasses.

The goal of AbGradCon, organized entirely by graduate students, is to promote the scientific research of young astrobiologists, while promoting collaboration, practical training, and camaraderie.

This conference has been an integral part of the astrobiology community for nearly two decades by providing a setting for graduate students and postdocs where small group discussions, presentations, and social activities promote long-term professional relationships.

In essence, AbGradCon seeks to create a more interdisciplinary and inclusive astrobiology community, foster collaboration, and provide practical training for young scientists.

Here are the live webcast links for the three days of the event:
