Event Description

.This conference will deal with fundamental issues of planetary habitability, i.e. the environmental conditions capable of sustaining life, and how interactions between the interior of a planet or a moon and its atmosphere and surface (including hydrosphere and biosphere) affect the habitability of the celestial body. It will address some hotly debated questions in the field including the following:

  • What effects do core and mantle have on evolution and habitability of planets?
  • What is the relation between (plate) tectonics and atmospheric evolution?
  • What role does the mantle overturn play in the evolution of the interior and atmosphere?
  • What is the role of the global carbon and water cycles herein?
  • What influence do comet and asteroid impacts exert on the evolution of the planet?
  • How does life interact with the evolution of Earth’s geosphere and atmosphere?
  • How can we use our knowledge of the solar system geophysics and habitability for exoplanets?

The proposed interdisciplinary will encompass research on all the planets from the upper atmosphere to the deep interior relevant to their habitability. It aims to bring together scientists from all disciplines related to the field in order to discuss the above-mentioned issues.

The following scientists have agreed to present invited talks at the conference:

Abigail Alwood, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, United States
Fabrice Gaillard, University of Orleans, France
Steven Goderis, Vrije Universitet Brussel, Belgium
Paul Falkowski, Rutgers University, United States
Kevin Heng, University of Bern, Switzerland
Dennis Höning, German Aerospace Centre, Germany
Emmanuelle Javaux, University of Liège, Belgium
Anders Johansen, Lund University, Sweden
Jim Kasting, Penn State University, United States
Alessandro Morbidelli, University of Nice, France
Lena Noack, Royal Observatory of Belgium, Belgium
Heike Rauer, German Aerospace Centre, Germany
Minik Rosing, Natural History Museum of Denmark, Denmark
Tilman Spohn, German Aerospace Centre, Germany
Paul Tackley, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
Kai Wünnemann, Natural History Museum, Berlin, Germany

There is no registration fee charged for participation in the conference. However, participants that are neither invited speakers nor recipients of bursaries nor members of the Core Group of COST Action TD1308 have to find their own funding for their accommodation, travels, and meals.

The deadline for registration and abstract  submission is 15 June 2017. Please consult the conference website for details.
