NASA is currently conducting a pre-phase A study of a Europa lander mission concept with the primary goal of searching for evidence of biomarkers and/or extant life on Europa. The SDT report will be released in late January, and NASA and the SDT are eager to hear feedback from the science community on the science content and implementation for the mission concept. To that end, NASA will host interactive town halls at LPSC and AbSciCon to discuss the SDT report. The purpose of these town halls is to provide an extended opportunity to communicate the science content of the report to the scientific community and, equally importantly, to engage in constructive discussion with the scientific community. The workshops will take place on the afternoons of Sunday, March 19, for LPSC and Sunday, April 23, for AbSciCon. For questions please contact Dr. Curt Niebur at or Dr. Mary Voytek at
