The 6th Bioastronomy Conference will be held at the Hapuna Prince Beach hotel from August 2-6, 1999. The series of previous Bioastronomy meetings have played an important role in integrating the broader interests and techniques of both astronomy and biology to understand the origin and evolution of living systems in the universe. The 1999 meetings will also be an opportunity to develop the promise of expanding interests for a new multidisciplinary science branch known as astrobiology. The scope of these studies is captured in the topics being proposed for this meeting: Organic molecules in interstellar and interplanetary space; Stellar birth; Origin and evolution of planetary systems; Comets, asteroids, and other small bodies and their role in the origin and evolution of life; Planetary evolution; Earth as a living planet; Extreme environments on the Earth; Catastrophic Impacts; Origin of life; Transport of life between planets; Evolution of life and intelligence; Detection and characterization of extrasolar planets; Search for extraterrestrial technology and life; Future missions; Public acceptance and support of scientific studies of life in the universe.
Abstract books will be provided at the meeting, and papers will be published as in a Proceedings edited by Guillermo Lemarchand. It will appear approximately 2-3 months after the final receipt of the camera-ready text.
