IAU 2018 General Assembly Symposium

The symposium will take place in Vienna at the 30th IAU General Assembly, August 20 – 23, 2018.

This symposium explores the chain of events that could have been involved in the formation of the Sun in the pre-solar galactic environment, planet Earth and the earliest lifeforms on it.

On one hand we see the history of consecutive events, on the other hand parallel processes of various scales have been interacting since pre-solar times till today.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together key researchers in these fields so that each component of our origins story can motivate and illuminate the others while giving a concise summary of the current state of knowledge for the next generation.

Accompanying summer school “Basics of Astrobiology” will be organized by the University of Vienna, 17-18 August 2018
