AbGradCon (Astrobiology Graduate Conference) provides a unique setting for astrobiologically-inclined graduate students and early career researchers to come together to share their research, to collaborate, and to network. AbGradCon 2020 marks the 16th year of this conference—each time in a different place and organized by a different group of students, but always with the original charter as a guide. This year’s conference will be held in Asia for the first time.

A Proposal Writing Retreat (PWR) will occur after the conference (Sep 18-21) in a remote area 1-2 hours away from Tokyo.
