    Aim of the workshop

    This workshop is a chance to discuss the nature and evolution of high redshift galaxies, from cosmic noon to re-ionization, as derived from a variety of observational evidence collected across the whole electromagnetic spectrum, and theoretical investigations.
    In the tradition of the previous meetings we aim at bringing together members of the main extragalactic surveys and theorists to present their latest results and perspectives for the next future.

    The workshop will be a chance to discuss the major questions on the ground, like:
    – What physical mechanisms control the growth of galaxies behind their mass?
    – How far are we from a complete census of star-formation rate in the early Universe? How much is still hidden (and not accounted for) in dusty galaxies?
    – What are the properties of galaxies at the highest redshifts?

    These main questions are further expanded in specific topics, like:
    – Reionization and properties of very first galaxies;
    – Star formation and mass assembly at high redshift;
    – Quiescent galaxies at high redshift
    – Statistical properties of high redshift galaxies;
    – Rest frame properties of high redshift galaxies and AGN:
    – The evolution of dust and dust-to-gas content in high redshift galaxies;
    – Links and differences between AGN and starburst galaxies at cosmic noon;

    Special focus on JWST

    With a scheduled JWST launch on December 2021 and the beginning of the data acquisition planned for mid 2022, the timing of the workshop makes it an ideal chance to discuss the forthcoming JWST programs.

    We have invited key representatives of the public and GTO extragalactic surveys and plan to organize a dedicated sessions to explore options for coordinating data analysis and scientific exploitation.
