Please join us for the session on “Finding Habitable Worlds and Life Beyond the Solar System” at the upcoming AbSciCon meeting this summer, June 15-19 in Chicago, Illinois. This session invites contributions on the science and technology requirements for the next generation of observatories that will undertake the search for life beyond the solar system. Topics to be covered in this session include signs of exoplanet habitability and global biosignatures that can be sought with upcoming instrumentation; instrument requirements and technologies to detect these markers; strategies for target selection and prioritization; and impacts of planetary system properties, telescope architecture, and instrument capabilities on the yield of
potentially inhabited exoplanets.
Abstract submission is now open (deadline March 4), and details, as well as a list of other session topics, are available at the AbSciCon website:
