Early Earth and ExoEarths: origin and evolution of life (Warsaw, Poland 3-7 April, 2017)

You are here


Warsaw, Poland 3-7 April, 2017

The meeting will cover a multitude of scientific subjects ranging from star and planet formation until the early evolution of life on Earth. It aims to bring together astronomers, physicists, chemists, geologists and biologists as well as academics and students from humanities to discuss the most important questions and newest findings in all related disciplines.

Presentations conserving the following topics are encouraged:

  • Physical and chemical processes under star and planet formation
  • Formation of complex molecules in space, planetary and satellite atmospheres
  • Before and after the Last Common Universal Ancestor: Early evolution of life
  • Meteorites as probes for understanding the Early Solar System
  • Comets and the early history of the Solar System
  • Geological conditions for prebiotic chemistry
  • Early Universe, early Earth and the origin of life: Evolution of concepts in history and philosophy
  • Borderline between chemistry and biology
  • Scientific misconceptions: case studies in astrobiology
  • Physical and chemical processes under star and planet formation
  • Formation of complex molecules in space, planetary and satellite atmospheres
  • Before and after the Last Common Universal Ancestor: Early evolution of Life
  • Comets and meteorites: Composition, chemical processes and their role in the evolution of the solar system
  • Early Universe, early Earth and the origin of life: Evolution of concepts in history and philosophy

Two special sessions:

  • Archean and Paleoproterozoic phosphorous cycle and phosphorites
  • Water on Mars and its implications to habitability of the Red Planet

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Aiming at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques, and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants' institutions or laboratories. STSMs are intended especially for young PhD researchers, but they are open to senior researchers as well. View the documents at this link.

 It should be explicitely noted that Master students are not eligible for STSMs which are for PhD students and more experienced researchers.

The life-Origins COST Project


Life-ORIGINS (TD1308) is a Trans Domain European COST Action dedicated to the scientific investigation of the origins and evolution of life on Earth and habitability of other planets.

The Action has specifically excluded the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life in its portfolio. Creationist theorems are also outside the Action’s remit.

Individuals are not allowed to use the name of the Action, its logo or any corporate identity of COST TD1308 in any communication without prior approval of the Management Committee.

All publications referencing the support of the Action should be sent to the appropriate Working Group chair at the time of submission.
