AASTCS 8: Habitable Worlds


Habitable Worlds
Virtually Anywhere
22 – 26 February 2021

Join us 22-26 February 2021

The Habitable Worlds 2021 workshop will be fully virtual! Join the astronomy and planetary science communities for this dynamic online experience happening 22-26 February 2021.

The Virtual Meeting Platform Is Open!

In order to receive your unique link to the platform on a timely basis, you must register for the meeting by 12:00 pm ET on Friday, 19 February. Late registrants should expect a delay of up to 16 hours if registered after that time.

Once you enter the meeting site, you will be asked to fill out the attendee profile, so other participants know who you are and what you work on.

The Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS), a NASA research coordination network devoted to the study of habitability and detectability of life on exoplanets, is pleased to announce a virtual workshop on Habitable Worlds 2021. This workshop is generating input from the astronomical community, culminating in a synchronous online meeting the week of 22-26 February 2021. The goal of the workshop is to identify opportunities and obstacles to cross-disciplinary collaboration on the questions of what makes planets habitable, and life on them detectable. Attendees need not have participated in the pre-meeting activities to attend the February meeting. For more information on the meeting history and pre-meeting activities, please see: http://nexss.info/community/workshops/habworlds2021

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop 22-26 February!
