Abstracts are due February 18, 2022, for the F3.6 event of the 44thCOSPAR Scientific Assembly entitled “Quest to Detect Extraterrestrial Life: Scientific Approaches and Cultural Impact of Discovery”.

More information about the event is available at: https://www.cospar-assembly.org/admin/session_cospar.php?session=1094

Abstract can be submitted on the following topics:

  • Observational and theoretical approaches to detect technosignatures
  • Habitability of planetary atmospheres – exoplanets – biosignatures
  • Anthropological Aspects of detecting techno/biosignatures

    The official deadline of abstract submission is on February the 18th 2022. However, and due to the short notice, astrobiologists and interested scientists from other disciplines can submit abstracts at a sensibly later date with respect to the official deadline.

    The list of accepted abstracts will be made public by the Program Committee at the end April 2022.

    The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) was established by the International Council for Scientific Unions in 1958 to “promote on an international level scientific research in space, with an emphasis is on the exchange of results, information and opinions, and to provide a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect scientific space research. These objectives are achieved through the organization of Scientific Assemblies, publications and other means.” More information on COSPAR can be found at: https://cosparhq.cnes.fr/
