Gazan’s work, in collaboration with ICS Professor Kim Binsted, is
called “Astrobiology Integrative Research Framework” (AIRFrame).  Based
on XML standards, it will:

  • Relate the work of astrobiology researchers from diverse disciplines both conceptually (by subject) and functionally (by researcher, hypothesis, mission, research questions, NASA goals, etc.)
  • Allow Web-browsable concept-map type visualizations of these relationships for researchers, students and the public
  • Encourage collaboration by allowing researchers to identify those in other fields who are working on similar questions
  • Create a persistent framework for the interdisciplinary education of future astrobiology researchers
