The Biosignature Preservation and Detection in Mars Analog Environments conference will be held May 16–19, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe (Nevada).

The objective of the conference is to focus strategies to detect a range of possible biosignatures on Mars in different categories of geologic settings by assessing the attributes and preservation potential of various biosignatures in different Mars-analog habitable environments on Earth.  We are seeking a better understanding of three broad classes of ancient environments known to exist in the martian geologic record:

    1. Lacustrine and deltaic sediments,
    2. Near-surface chemical sediments (including hydrothermal and pedogenic), or
    3. Deep crustal rocks (including hydrothermally altered).

Abstract Deadline: March 15, 2016
