The event will take place at Meriton Grand Conference & Spa Hotel, Tallinn, Estonia from May 29th to June 2nd, 2011. The meeting will be organised as a joint meeting between the COST Action "The Chemical Cosmos: Understanding Chemistry in Astronomical Environments" and the Nordic Astrobiology Network. It will start on Tuesday, May 29 in the morning and finish on Saturday June 2 Lunchtime. A special session "Nordic Highlights in Astrobiology" is planned for the morning of Saturday June 2, to which all participants are cordially invited.

The HERSCHEL space telescope has delivered a lot of new data on many objects falling under this category and future observations with the ALMA millimetre array will explore their fine structure and chemistry. Aim of this event is to update experimentalists and theoreticians about new findings concerning warmer environments in space and, hopefully provide a forum to discuss new research ideas and projects.
Deadline for registration, accommodation booking and abstract submission: 15 April 2012
