AbSciCon, the conference brings the astrobiology community together every two years to share research, collaborate, and plan for the future, will be held 15-20 May 2022. NASA and the American Geophysical Union decided to move the 2021 conference to these new dates to facilitate a robust gathering of scientists in Atlanta and in an online capacity. Origins and Exploration: From Stars to Cells is the theme.

AbSciCon will be at the Hilton Atlanta Downtown, located at 255 Courtland Street NE. The Hilton is in the heart of Atlanta with easy access to local attractions and the MARTA rapid transit. Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a 12-minute drive.
