07 Science Avenue, Ghenh Rang, Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh, Vietnam
This international conference, endorsed by IAU and Division of Planetary Sciences and Astrobiology, is the third of a series of conferences on « Planets, Exoplanets and Astrobiology ». It will be preceeded by a 2 day Training School on « Basics of Astrobiology » for students and young researchers (December 9th-11th – see “Program“). Both the Training School and Conference will be held at ICISE* and hosted by the Rencontres du Vietnam**.
* The International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) is pleasantly located in the seaside of the city of Quy Nhon (Central Vietnam) where conferences meeting international standards can be organized. It contributes to the development of research and education in Vietnam and in this region of Asia. With this motivation in mind, Asian scientists are encouraged to meet for events (conferences, schools and workshops) and to share knowledge/expertise with their foreign counterparts.
** Since 1993, the institution “Rencontres du Vietnam”, which is an official partner of UNESCO, has organized international meetings (conferences and schools) of high scientific level with the motivation of fostering exchange between Vietnamese researchers or others from Asia-Pacific region and their colleagues coming from other parts of the world.
Before the conference we will organize at ICISE a 2-day training school for students and young researchers who have not been exposed to the interdisciplinary basics that astrobiology requires (e.g., astronomy for biologists, prebiotic chemistry for astronomers, etc.).
4 sessions of 3 hours each will be presented on Astrophysics/Planetology, Earth sciences, Chemistry and Life Sciences. Session hours will be 8:00 – 11:30 and 13:00 – 16 :30.
