The sixth biennial conference of the Astrobiology Society of Britain (ASB6) invites papers on these and related topics. Abstracts are requested by Wednesday 1 July 2015 (see details for oral presentations and poster submissions below).

Oral presentations

Contributed talks are 15 minutes including questions.

Invited talks are 30 minutes including questions.

Both a PC and Mac will be available.

Because of the need to save time between hand-overs, we request that speakers giving 15-minute contributed talks refrain from using their own laptops and instead use the PC or Mac that will be available in the lecture theatre. Please could you upload your talks onto these machines no later than the break immediately prior to your talk. Your session chair will be available to help as required.

Poster presentations

Poster boards are 2m x 1m portrait size.

We recommend displaying your poster for the duration of the conference. The display boards will be available Wednesday - Friday. They are located in rooms B05 and B15 next to the Darwin Lecture Theatre where the main scientific programme is scheduled. This is also where registration, coffee breaks and the Wednesday evening reception take place.

Velcro stickers and drawing pins will be provided for fastening posters to the boards. There is no fixed order assigned for the posters as numbers have been limited to 20, so please choose where you wish to display your research.

The poster preview session will take place in the Darwin Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 2 September at 4.45pm, prior to the evening reception. There will be 2 minutes per poster and we recommend no more than two slides.
