National Exobiology Conference at Aix-Marseille Université: what is the future and what are the challenges for this interdisciplinary field of knowledge?

The French Exobiology Society is organizing in a few days the National Exobiology Conference on the Luminy campus in Marseille. From October 11 to 14, these exchanges aim at gathering researchers from all scientific disciplines related to exobiology. At the crossroads of many disciplines, exobiology is interested in the origins and limits of life on Earth but also, potentially, elsewhere in the Universe.

This conference will present, through an interdisciplinary approach, the latest scientific advances on exciting topics ranging from the formation of the solar system to the emergence of life.

On Tuesday, October 12, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. at the headquarters of Aix-Marseille University (Pharo), a public screening of the French documentary questioning the origins of life, "Et si la Terre était unique?" is offered to all.

This special screening will take place in the presence of its director, Laurent Lichtenstein, and the President of Aix-Marseille University, Mr Eric Berton. The screening will be followed by convivial exchanges with the French scientists interviewed in the documentary. In addition, a round table (by invitation) on the future of exobiology in France is organized on October 14, 2021 at 10:45 am (Hexagone - Campus Luminy). In the presence of institutional representatives of Aix-Marseille University, CNES, CNRS, and of initiatives underway in other French universities, the objective of the exchanges will be to establish a common vision of the national future of exobiology and to define the challenges for the local and national structuring of the discipline. The conference is organized by the French Society of Exobiology (SFE), in partnership with Aix-Marseille University, CNES and CNRS.
