Introduction


The 51st ESLAB Symposium: “Extreme Habitable Worlds”, will take place 04-08 December 2017 at the European Space Agencies’ European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

The Scientific Organising Committee of ESLAB 51 invites contributions on a variety of interdisciplinary themes regarding extreme habitability on Earth, in the solar system and throughout the universe.

Contributions are planned as keynote (invited) talks, oral and poster presentations, interactive presentations and debates. Contributors are invited to share and discuss their research with colleagues and friends. We look forward to welcoming you in Noordwijk.
