COSMIC NUGGETS – A feast of compact and massive galaxies across the Universe
LOCATION: Sport & Kurhotel at Bad Moos - Via Val Fiscalina 27, 39030, Sexten
This workshop will have the main purpose of reviewing the state-of-the-art of observations and
simulations about the most dense, massive and compact galaxies across the Universe: from the
high-z dense, star-forming galaxies to the local ultra-compact massive galaxies, an entire feast of
cosmic nuggets. These objects pose a great challenge for the current paradigm on galaxy
formation and evolution, and can be of precious help in understanding the mass assembly of
large, massive local early-type galaxies, which account for more than half of the total stellar mass
of the whole Universe and are responsible for its chemical enrichment. Therefore, this workshop
aims at tracing the time evolution of these peculiar and rare objects in order to better understand
their role in galaxy evolution.
