How Life began on Earth? This intriguing question is of capital importance for modern science. From the most recent exploratory missions to ancient philosophy, this fascinating question is puzzling humankind from the beginning.

University of Pavia, as a growing research institute, offers you a unique platform to get in touch with top scientists in the field and learn most advanced models with experimental techniques used in prebiotic investigations.

With multidisciplinarity as a trademark, WISOL 23 is aimed at chemists, physicists, biologists, geologists, planetary scientists, astronomists and scholars for fruitfully building a knowledge exchange network and a cradle for future collaborations.

WISOL 23 is an intensive international school and it is the first school on origins of life studies.

The school comprises laboratory activities on data treatment and computer simulations with the most advanced open-source software.

Attendees will have the opportunity to present their work in flash communications that will be held as part of the main events.
Organization 24 hours of activities in 4 days. Activities includes lessons, seminars, laboratories and round tables. Students are directly involved in activities (a personal laptop is highly recommended).
