Description and aim

This workshop has two goals:

(1) To put together a roadmap for future research at the interface of astronomy, geology, chemistry and biology that can be addressed experimentally and/or theoretically within the next few years, that will help the astronomer rank which exoplanets in the liquid water habitable zone are most likely to harbor life.

(2) To apply knowledge from exoplanet observations and modeling, and from planetary science, to inform the range of possible environments that can be explored experimentally by chemists and biologists, and can explore the range of planetary conditions under which life might arise, as well as a more comprehensive range of geological, hydrological and atmospheric conditions that may be encountered on the Early Earth.
