Event Description

The summer school "Water, Ice and the Origin of Life in the Universe", which will be held in Iceland from 1 to 13 July 2015, aims to give participants a thorough high-level introduction into the role of water in the evolution of life in the cosmos, starting from formation of water molecules in space and ending with evolution of the first organisms. It will bring together students and researchers from a multitude of different science branches, making it a truly multidisciplinary event. Field studies on the colonisation of lava fields and glaciers will complement the lectures. The programme of the summer school comprises:

  • lectures by internationally leading scientists covering a broad range of subjects in astrobiology
  • investigation of colonisation of volcanic rocks and glaciers with in situ life detection techniques
  • excursions to geologically and biologically interesting sites (lava caves, new lava fields)
  • surveys of Mars-analogue landscapes
  • 2 poster sessions for students and early career scientists


A multitude of highly merited researchers have agreed to teach at the course (see the Programme page for details. The deadline for application is 15 March 2015 23:59:00 UTC. For details please check the website
