The next Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon) will be held April 24–28, 2017 at the Mesa Convention Center in Mesa, Arizona.

The theme is “Diverse Life and its Detection on Different Worlds.” Mars and icy worlds in our solar system are increasingly recognized as habitable, even as increasing numbers of exoplanets in their stars’ habitable zones have been discovered. The focus is shifting from identification of habitable worlds, to detection of life on these worlds.

The period for registration and submission of abstracts begins October 26, 2016. The abstract submission deadline is January 18, 2017.
