Event Details

Life and Planet is the new annual meeting of the Earth System Science Group of the Geological Society of London, which will take place at the historic Burlington House venue in Piccadilly. We aim to provide an exciting, inclusive and supportive yearly event where anybody interested in the co-evolution of life and the Earth can present their work, can build collaborations, and can grow the community. 

We are dedicated to promoting the work of early career researchers (ECRs) and, as such, the meeting will have free abstract submission, low registration fees and will feature selected 'highlight' talks from our submissions rather than invited talks from senior colleagues. We hope that attendance will comprise researchers at all career stages as well as other interested parties and individuals.

Scientific Focus and Sessions

The theme of co-evolution is broad and cross-disciplinary, and we welcome work that spans the fields of (in no particular order) palaeontology, (bio)geochemistry, sedimentology, geobiology, palaeoclimate, geodynamics, tectonics, astrobiology and any scientific work that aims to understand how life has shaped the global environment and/or how the global environment has shaped life on Earth. We welcome equally work from the field, the laboratory or from numerical simulation. The meeting will run over three days and will consist of talks and workshops in the 172-seater main lecture theatre, and poster sessions and social and collaborative time in the lower library.
