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.The program kicks off with a poster session on Monday, Jan. 27, and continues with plenary lectures, contributed talks, and a networking session on Tuesday, Jan. 28.

The interdisciplinary colloquium will highlight space exploration science, as well as  biological, geological, and astronomical origins research in the Georgia Institute of Technology and neighboring universities. The colloquium aims to forge relationships among diverse individuals, encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary understanding, and kick-start fundable projects requiring the skills and expertise of multilab teams.

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.
