The origins of habitable bodies in and beyond our home Solar System – International Meeting by University of Edinburgh
This theme will accommodate the presentation of new findings arising from meteoritical, experimental / analogue / computational modelling, and space mission studies. Contributions that integrate chemical and other findings for meteorites with models of celestial mechanics are strongly encouraged. A session to allow for astronomical planet-hunting findings to be disseminated and discussed will be included. What are the priorities in our investigations / searches, what do we each need to know from one another, and what new efforts do we need to undertake together?
This event is hosted by the University of Edinburgh’s large and well-equipped School of Geosciences, and potential delegates should be aware that this institution is also home to a range of specialist cooperative clusters such as SPRINT, the UK Centre for Astrobiology, the Centre for Exoplanetary Science, the Bayes Centre, the Royal Observatory, and UK Astronomy Technology Centre that hosts the Higgs Centre for Innovation.
