Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, AbGradE has been forced to cancel in-person meetings for 2020. Nonetheless, this does not mean that interactions amongst European astrobiologists have been cancelled - we are pleased to announce that we will hold a “Virtual AbGradE 2020” on 26th August, 2020, immediately preceding the virtual EANA 2020 meeting.
The AbGradE meeting will include keynote and contributed talks, a panel session, and a virtual poster session. There will be a special focus on overview talks from scientists associated with astrobiology research centres across the world explaining the research themes and opportunities at their institutions.
We hope that the virtual nature of this meeting will allow many of our colleagues from around the world to join us. If you would like to register for the meeting, and perhaps give a short talk, please fill out the registration form. The deadline for abstract submission is July 31st, 2020.
Updates regarding the schedule, the guidelines for the talks/poster, etc. will be send via email after registration. Due to the high number of already registered participants, confirmations via email and replies may take some days. In addition, please check our Facebook and Twitter (@abgradeurope) account for any news related to the meeting.
We very much hope that you will able to join us in cyberspace for “Virtual AbGradE 2020”!
Your AbGradE Committee
