EANA 2018
EANA 2018 will be held in Berlin, Germany, at the Free University Berlin, Campus Lankwitz.

Dates: 24-28 September 2018

The conference welcomes abstracts from all topics of astrobiology, and will set a special focus on "Water". EANA 2018 will be held together with the annual meetings of the German Astrobiology Society DAbG and the VAAM Space Microbiology Group. The third AbGradE symposium will take place directly before EANA at the same venue, from 22-24 September 2018.

A large number of early-career travel grants will be available.

Don't miss the opportunity to participate on Friday, 21 September, at the EPSC - the European Planetary Science Congress 2018, which also takes place in Berlin, at the Technical University Berlin. EANA participants can join as passive participants (i.e. not presenting a scientific talk or poster), but need to register for this via the EANA registration form. You will then be allowed to register on 21 September on-site for a reduced registration fee of 35€.

For questions, please don't hesitate to contact Lena Noack (lena.noack (at) fu-berlin.de) and Frances Westall (westall (at) cnrs-orleans.fr).
