This will be the 4th biannual meeting of The Society for Social and Conceptual Issues in Astrobiology (SSoCIA). This is a new organization dedicated to rigorous exploration of the many broader issues surrounding astrobiology and space exploration more generally. We are a young and growing community, with about 150 active members representing academics from natural science, social science, and the humanities (including philosophy); professionals working in the space industry; as well as experts from the communication, education, and science fiction communities. Our goal is to foster serious, thoughtful engagement with these issues in an informal and friendly atmosphere. The program will consist peer-reviewed submissions, several panel discussions, and two keynote addresses (Simon Conway Morris and Seth Shostak).
