Program Committee on Drake Equation Print
IAA/SFE/CNES Workshop on Drake Equation, , Paris, France, 21-22 November 2011

This workshop is aimed at stimulating discussion about the Drake Equation initially introduced by the American astronomer Frank Drake in November 1961 at the Greenbank Conference. Fifty years after its formulation, knowledge has significantly increased on most of the parameters involved in the Equation. The workshop is intended to promote interdisciplinary exchanges and discussion of these parameters by astrophysicists, chemists, biologists, anthropologists and philosophers. All involved topics will be considered including star and planet formation, origin and evolution of life and intelligence, and interstellar communication technologies. The workshop should lead to the exploration of new ideas about the presence and search of other civilizations in the galaxy.
