Subject: First Annual Astrobiology Conference

NASA will host an international conference on astrobiology
science to be held this spring at NASA Ames Research
Center, Mountain View, California, on April 3-5, 2000. The
focus of the meeting is on scientific results that illustrate
the broad multidisciplionary nature of astrobiology. As such,
this conference will complement other, more narrowly
focused meetings that deal primarily with one or two
subdisciplines of astrobiology. We hope that this conference
will become an annual event and will help to develop a
growing constituency for astrobiology within the
international scientific community.

Bruce Jakosky (U Colorado) is the Chair of the Scientific
Organizing Committee, and Lynn Rothschild (NASA Ames) is
the Chair of the Local Organizing Committee.

Format for the conference will be single sessions (no double
or split sessions), with mix of invited oral reviews, oral
contributed talks, and dedicated poster sessions.

Selection of oral contributed papers will be on the basis of
exciting new results of interest to the whole community.
Our goal will be to have good overviews of the science, broad
representation of the component disciplines, and integration
across disciplines.

There will be no published proceedings, but a booklet of
abstracts will be prepared for distribution at the meeting.
Abstracts of contributed papers for the conference will be
due (electronic submission) on February 11, 2000.

Abstracts can be up to one page in length (nominally 400
words). Details concerning abstract requirements, logistical
information, fees, and preregistration will be available on the
conference website (see
