European Geosciences Union Galileo conference
Geoscience for understanding habitability in the solar system and beyond
Furnas, São Miguel, Azores, Portugal, 25–29 September 2017
This conference will deal with fundamental issues of planetary habitability, i.e. the environmental conditions capable of sustaining life, and how interactions between the interior of a planet or a moon and its atmosphere and surface (including hydrosphere and biosphere) affect the habitability of the celestial body. It aims to bring together scientists from all disciplines related to the field in order to discuss the se issues.
Bursaries are available, for students and early career scientists, preferably for those giving oral and poster presentations. Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 15 June 2017.
The conference will be held at the Hotel Terra Nostra Garden****. The hotel is a newly renovated Art Deco hotel with a very good restaurant and a large, famous botanical garden with a thermal pool. The area is geothermally active with hot springs, solfatares and a very nice crater lake. The João Paulo Airport with frequent direct flights to the European mainland and America is located only 45 km from the venue.
