We are also preparing a two day training school with lectures on basics of Astrobiology open to all participants. This school will precede the conference and take place on Santiago during Friday 24th and Saturday 25th. There is no extra cost for participants of the conference but space is limited. Interested participants of the TS should reserve a seat during registration.
We expect to be able to provide a reduced number of travel funds for students. Instructions to apply for it will be provided on the webpage during coming March.
