Notification of Acceptance

We are pleased that Astrobiology 2017 received 139 abstracts from 27 countries and international organizations. In the original schedule, the “Notification of Acceptance” would have been sent to the submitters by August 25th. Since the Scientific Organization Committee (SOC) extended the submission due date by a week, the SOC have found that they need more time than originally thought in selecting excellent oral contributions. The new date for announcing the “Notification of Acceptance” is set to September 1st.

We apologize for the delay.

Masatoshi Ohishi

SOC Chair
