Upcoming and future experiments focused on Cosmic Dawn and Reionization (e.g., HERA, SKA, JWST, Roman Space Telescope) will revolutionize our understanding of the high-redshift universe. Measurements from these telescopes will provide a wealth of information about astrophysics and cosmology, giving us unprecedented insight into the earliest eras of star formation.

In this workshop, we aim to bring together experts in theoretical modeling, simulation, and observations to understand how best to make use of this wealth of data on the horizon. We plan to have in-person talks, discussions, and lively debates on a variety of topics, including

  • developments in high-redshift galaxy modeling,
  • advancements of semi-numerical and simulation techniques,
  • improvements in inference of astrophysical and cosmological parameters,
  • updates on recent observations,
  • and prospects for cross-correlation measurements between different probes.
Please check the program for more details.
