The ExplOrigins group is hosting the 3rd annual Exploration and Origins Colloquium on January 27th and 28th, in another example of Georgia Tech’s thriving collaboration between the astrobiology and space science communities. This interdisciplinary colloquium will highlight space exploration science and biological, geological, and astronomical origins research going on at the Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as neighboring universities. The goals of the colloquium are to forge relationships between diverse individuals, encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary understanding, and kick-start future fundable projects requiring the skills and expertise of multi-lab teams. With a cohort of presenters from a wide range of fields, the colloquium aims to bring together the diverse  research of Georgia Tech scientists and engineers who explore our world, space, and the universe as well as to investigate the origins of life, earth, and our solar system. 

The colloquium will  begin with a poster session on the evening of the 27th where attendees will show off their latest work in an environment conducive to interdisciplinary collaboration. Activities on the 28th include a day-long seminar with twelve contributed talks, and highlighted keynote addresses by: Mariel Borowitz of Georgia Tech’s Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and Christopher Carr of MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital. This colloquium takes place in the context of a burgeoning astrobiology community at Georgia Tech, with the Institute having recently hosted the Astrobiology Graduate Conference in 2018 and announced the host of Astrobiology Science Conference in 2021.
