This event will bring together researchers interested in Astrobiology from across the Australiasian and Asian regions, to develop and exchange ideas on how life in the universe could originate and persist.

The AAM2020 organising committee has decided to postpone the in-person conference in Tokyo this year. Although we feel sad about this, we feel it is the right thing to do given the pandemic’s impact on people’s lives and of course the associated travel restrictions. We are presently exploring options for a virtual conference, and will keep abstract submissions open until further notice. Please stay tuned for updates and in the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe, and very best wishes.
