The daylong event will feature keynote speaker Pamela Conrad, an astrobiologist and mineralogist with the Planetary Environments Laboratory at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, USA. She is Deputy Principal Investigator and Investigation Scientist for the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument suite, which landed at Gale Crater on Mars as part of the Mars Science Laboratory mission in August. Her extensive field experience revolves around characterizing the edges of habitable zones in deserts (both polar and temperate) and testing rock targeting (triage) tools. She has participated in seven arctic expeditions as well as two Antarctic expeditions (one as PI), and explored deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the floor of the Pacific Ocean from a submersible. Earth-based interests include applying habitability assessment measurements to the chemical and mineralogical characterization of surface and shallow subsurface terrestrial environments.
