The University of Southern California will host the first virtual Southern California Geobiology Symposium on May 20-21 (through Zoom and Gathertown). The SoCal Geobiology Symposium is an annual student-organized symposium for scientists interested in astrobiology, climate science, ecology, geochemistry, geology, microbiology, oceanography, and paleobiology. We welcome scientists from all levels of academia and both those living in Southern California and from around the world. Undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs are encouraged to submit abstracts for posters or talks to share their research; selection will prioritize those from the rotating SoCal Geobio host institutions (USC, Caltech, and UC Riverside).  Registration and abstract submission deadline: April 23, 2021.
