The workshop DULIA-bio (Deep Underground Laboratories Integrated Activities in biology) will take place in Canfranc (Spain) on Oct 13 and 14, 2015. The aim of the workshop is to establish a common path for European underground laboratories in deep life studies and its application to astrobiology. The workshop goals are to spread interest in this research field, put together a new community working in underground laboratories and be the first of a series of meetings to be held in the four deep underground labs in Europe.
The Workshop aims to shed light on a rather recent finding: life is not a surface phenomenon on Earth.
In 1990s it became apparent that life extends in the deep subsurface and in extreme environments.
Deep Underground Laboratories in Europe and elsewhere could offer the opportunity to answer open questions concerning life in deep biosphere and extreme environments. The Workshop aims to put together scientists working on this field and spread knowledge among the scientists working in underground laboratories mainly on so-called Astroparticle Physics.

The Workshop Scientific will cover the following main items:

Life in deep biosphere
Life in low radio environment
Extremophile biotechnology
