    We are on the threshold of a “Big Data” revolution in astrophysical cosmology, driven by the arrival of next-generation 21-cm radio interferometers: the Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA) and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). 3D maps of the dawn of the first stars and black holes will soon be available. Data analysis and theoretical models are advancing at a rapid pace, in order to tap into the wealth of physics encoded in the signal. We propose a Sexten CfA workshop to bring together leading researchers in the field of 21-cm cosmology.

    We will hear updates from the current first-generation telescopes, including PAPER, LOFAR, and MWA. With these different perspectives, we will discuss the optimal strategies for HERA and SKA. We will foster synergies between theorists and observers, in an effort to build efficient, accurate data analysis pipelines. The ultimate goal of our efforts is to maximize the science returns of our significant investments in next-generation 21-cm telescopes.
