Israel Society for Astrobiology and the Study of the Origin of Life

ILASOL (Israel Society for Astrobiology and the Study of the Origin of Life) is an Israeli scientific society, devoted to perhaps the most profound riddles ever facing science - life's origin and early evolution, and its existence and dispersal in the universe. Astrobiology has been established as a field of study a few decades ago, and the Israeli scientific community has been at its forefront ever since.

ILASOL was established in 1987 and has been a member of FAO (the Federation of Astrobiology Organizations) since January 2005. ILASOL holds an annual gathering every year, in which astronomers, physicists, biologists, chemists, geologists, and researchers of other disciplines present works related to life's origin and astrobiology.

 

The next conference will be held on April 20th, 2021, at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.
