AbSciCon '06

The 2006 Astrobiology Science Conference is being held in DC this year, Ronald Reagan building and the ITC, end of march.
This is the annual gathering of US astrobiology, and it will be a somber one. The hints of bad news came several weeks ago when NAI there would be no travel support for graduate students to attend the meeting.

It is a large meeting, the "odd year" meetings are NAI specific and not generally open, the even year meetings are open and have a large attendance. The meeting is split into major symposia with a mixture of plenary sessions and parallel sessions with short contributed talks. And of course large poster sessions.

It will be a good meeting, I am expecting a lot of interesting results, some wild speculation and strong synergy.
