The goal of the conference is to bring together the interdisciplinary community required to address this multi-faceted challenge: experts on exoplanet observations, early and extreme life on earth, atmospheric biomarkers, and planet-finding telescopes.

The meeting will include five keynote speakers, ten invited speakers, and contributed talks; each session will include extended discussion times. There will be posters, but no parallel sessions. Given recent conferences with similar topics we anticipate high interest, but will limit the number of attendance to 250 to allow interactions between the participants. The conference will include a banquet (Thursday evening) and an afternoon break (Wednesday).

An independently organized 2-day weekend graduate school for 20 graduate students will follow the conference, either at the Mt Lemmon Sky Center or at Biosphere2. The topic of the school will be closely related to the conference and some of the speakers will be invited to give lectures in the school.
