Conference

Isotopes as diagnostic tools in astronomy, geology and biology

The third meeting of the Nordic Network of Astrobiology will be devoted to the subject "Isotopes as diagnostic tools in astronomy, geology and biology". Isotope ratios are used in many fields of astrobiology,to determine the origin and synthesis pathways of interstellar molecules, to date early geological formation, to assess paleoclimates and, last but not least, to detect life on early Earth. The conference aims to bring researchers from different fields using isotopes together to exchange the newest developments in this field and to develop ideas for further research. The following themes will be, amongst others, covered by the symposium:

• Isotope ratios in the interstellar medium
• Isotopes in stars
• Isotopes and the early solar system
• Isotopes in meteorites
• Isotopes in dating of geological formations
• Isotope ratios as indications of catastrophic events in Earth's history
• Identification of metabolisms in sediments by using stable isotopes
• Effects of stable isotopes on biological systems
• Stable Isotope ratios as biomarkers on Mars and other habitable planets and satellites
• Isotopes in the search for life on the early Earth
• Isotopes in ice cores as indications in past and present climates

The conference will take place at Åkersberg Herrgård in Höör, Skåne in Southern Sweden. The venue is only a 400m walk from Höör railway station, from where there are frequent direct connections to Copenhagen Airport. The meeting is open to interested scientists all over the world. We from the Nordic Network of Astrobiology are looking forward to welcoming you at the conference.

Deadline for registration, accommodation booking and abstract submission: 15 April 2013
