Abstract Template and Instructions

Abstract Deadline — Saturday, August 10, 2019, 11:59 p.m., Moscow Local Time (UTC+3:00 hours)

Interested parties are invited to submit abstracts related to one or more of these four categories:

  • Landing sites targets:  geology, mineralogy, surface morphology, seismology, atmospheric boundary studies
  • Theoretical studies on habitability, bio species survival, and atmospheric chemistry relevant to habitability and climate evolution
  • Surface/atmosphere/bio species (micro-organism) instrumentation and sampling systems, including indications of the most suitable observing platforms
  • Laboratory studies supporting surface/atmospheric sample analysis and cloud species identifications; this includes spectral signatures of minerals, aerosols, gases, bio species, and studies of micro-organism sustainability within Venus analog environments.


Mid- to early-career scientists are encouraged to submit abstracts. Some travel support for U.S.-based scientists may be possible for selected abstracts. Interested parties are requested to notify the organizers of their interest as soon as possible to help with the workshop planning. Requests for travel support will be provided on a case-by-case basis, pending abstract acceptance.
