Aims of the Workshop

This workshop is organised by the Swedish Astrobiology Network, and will bring together leading scientists from different fields working with questions concerning water delivery to the early Earth and the origin of the oceans on our planet. Since this subject is still very controversial many inspired discussions can be expected.

Place and time

The workshop will take place in the De Geer room of the Department of Geology and Geochemistry at Stockholm University, Svante Arrhenius väg 8C, 106 91 Stockholm, Sweden, on November 3rd 2009. After the scientific programme, a public lecture and a film show will take place at the Stockholm Natural History Museum.

Registration deadline

The deadline for registration is October 1st, 2009. It is possible to attend also when registering later, but accommodation and meals cannot be guaranteed in that case. Early registration is therefore recommended.
