AbSciCon 2022

Origins and Exploration: From Stars to Cells’ was the theme behind AbSciCon 2022, Astrobiology Science Conference.

Every two years this event brings a global astrobiology community together to network and share research. This year the meeting was hybrid which meant that there were both virtual and on-site presenters and participants.

We received some glowing feedback from one participant:

These images from AbSciCon show how iPoster sessions can be structured at an in-person or hybrid meeting. Individual sessions were set up in iPoster Theaters. These were for more structured and formal presentations. For multiple consecutive sessions, rows of touch screens were set up in an iPoster Hall. This provided the opportunity for more casual discussions with poster authors. Finally, there were browsing screens available at any time for attendees who would like to explore further outside of official presentation times.
