The 6th NoRCEL conference continues a voyage of exploration and discovery pertaining to various aspects of the chemical evolution of life

About this event

Chemical Informational Universe

Is life nothing but a large network of chemical reactions and cycles, endlessly recycling itself with ever greater complexity? Surely something else is involved! Just as writing communicates knowledge through language, so the human genome conveys information to those that can read it. Of course, this fact only raises more questions: are there other kinds of “information”, for example? What physical and chemical conditions are necessary, and can they exist on other planets? If life arose in specific environment, such as hydrothermal vents, how did it escape and populate the Earth? We therefore invite focused talks that try to elucidate these and other questions, all related to the origin of life.

  • We are back live and in person after a very long hiatus and we sincerely hope that you are able join us on this next step of NoRCEL's journey of scientific discovery.
  • Our registration fee of £275 includes refreshments during the day (coffee and biscuits and a buffet lunch), as well as a full conference dinner on the 10th August, at one of the University of St Andrews prestigious restaurants.
  • Further details regarding reserving accommodation at the university, which we feel is the most convenient, reasonable priced and practical, will be updated on our website shortly.
