The OCEANS Conference 2022 Hampton Roads conference for global maritime professionals to learn, innovate and lead in the protection and utilization of the world’s largest natural resource – our Oceans.
The exploration of ocean worlds in the outer solar system has significantly expanded our set of targets in the quest to discover signs of life beyond Earth in the past decade and will continue to be in the ones to come. We invite contributions that cover a wide range of topics focusing on confirmed or potential subsurface (including surficial in the case of Titan’s lakes) ocean worlds of our solar system. The topics can include studies on the geomorphology and composition of ocean worlds, geophysics and ocean properties, as well as laboratory investigations and field work of analogue environments. Furthermore, studies that examine interactions between planetary interiors, surfaces, atmospheres, and astrobiology/habitability are welcomed.
AbSciCon, the conference brings the astrobiology community together every two years to share research, collaborate, and plan for the future. Join NASA and the American Geophysical Union as we facilitate a robust gathering of scientists in Atlanta and in an online capacity 15 – 20 May 2022.
