Towards a Deeper Understanding of the Distant Universe

Friday 9th May 2014

Organiser: Elizabeth Stanway (Warwick)

Abstract

Our understanding of galaxies in the distant Universe is steadily developing, driven by ever more sensitive observations and advances in instrumentation, as well as by advances in theory and modelling. A number of ‘deep’ surveys, probing the faint fluxes required for discovery and analysis of distant galaxies, are currently under way. These can be enhanced by detailed follow-up of interesting targets across a broad wavelength range. By combining data from a diverse range of studies we are now able to build up something approaching a coherent picture of the star forming galaxies that emitted their light in the first two billion years after the Big Bang, but inevitably with such challenging work, many questions concerning their properties, influence and evolution remain unanswered.

This informal workshop will discuss existing and future work on this field both in the UK and abroad, and seek to foster new and encourage existing collaborative research between interested academics and researchers in this subject area.
