High redshift Gamma-Ray-Bursts in the JWST era
LOCATION: Sport & Kurhotel at Bad Moos - Via Val Fiscalina 27, 39030, Sexten
This conference is aimed at discussing the most recent results on high redshift Gamma-Ray-Bursts (GRBs), their origin and the characteristics of their host galaxies, in the era of JWST. High redshift GRBs are particularly interesting for studying the early phases of the evolution of galaxies and the physics of the early Universe. We will discuss both long and short GRBs and their frequency in galaxies of different morphological type. The origin of long GRBs, in particular their association to Type Ib,c supernovae, as well as that of short GRBs, which are believed to originate from merging neutron stars, will be discussed. Morphological identification of GRB host galaxies by means of their observed abundances of metals will be also considered.
