How to find Lund Observatory
The Swedish Astrobiology Network (SwAN) spring meeting will be held in Lund.
Given the proximity to Copenhagen, we also expect partipants from there.
The talks will start in the late morning and continue through the afternoon
to allow people to return the same day.
Even if you are from Lund or Copenhagen, please sign up following the link on the left.
This allows us to schedule to coffee sessions correspondingly.
We welcome proposal for talks in alll areas of astrobiology, and specifically on issues
of Mars exploration.
