About EANA 2024

In 2002, the first stand-alone EANA conference took place in Graz, Austria, and attracted 320 attendees, which still can be counted as the biggest European Astrobiology conference so far. More than 20 years later, EANA returns to Graz: The Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences invites the European Astrobiology community for the 24th EANA conference.

This meeting aims to foster the collaborations between the Solar System and Exoplanet communities, to bring together researchers from diverse fields, and to offer a platform to discuss future joint interdisciplinary projects. EANA 2024 will be a 3.5 days meeting, from September 3rd to 6th, taking place at the “Alte Technik”, Graz University of Technology.

For the first time, EANA 2024 will host the ESA Brainstorming on Astrobiology Splinter Session. Further information about this splinter session and how to participate will be announced soon.

The meeting will consist of invited keynote as well as contributed talks, the well-known Space Factor contest, and poster sessions. A reception at the Graz townhall will take place on the September 2nd 2024, and guided tours that include chocolate and wine tasting are possible on September 6th and 7th 2024.

EANA 2024 will take place in person only.

AbGradE

On September 2nd, 2024, the 5th AbGradE Workshop will take place. This one-day event will take place right before EANA 2024 at the Space Research Institute (Schmiedlstraße 6, 8042 Graz, Austria).
