The theme for AbSciCon 2019 is “Understanding and Enabling the Search for Life on Worlds Near and Far.” Within our solar system, icy worlds and Mars have generated excitement, and exoplanets offer numerous and diverse environments where life may exist in other planetary systems. Near future missions and observations will scrutinize many of these targets to understand their environments and search for signs of life. Meanwhile, fundamental research on the origin and evolution of life on Earth drives our understanding about life processes that may operate elsewhere.

Among other topics, the conference will address:
  • Star-planet-planetary system interactions and habitability.
  • Alternative and agnostic biosignatures
  • Understanding the environments of early Earth
  • Evidence for early life on Earth
  • Subsurface habitability and life
  • Ocean worlds near and far
  • Characterizing habitable zone exoplanets
  • Transition of prebiotic chemistry to biology
  • Energy sources in the environment and metabolic pathways that use that energy
  • Terrestrial planets orbiting M dwarfs
  • Other
