The Ecosystem of Massive Halos Across Cosmic Time

Event description

Massive halos present unique opportunities to study the interplay between galaxies, black holes, and the circum-galactic medium via numerous multi-wavelength tracers. This small workshop (limited to 30 participants) will bring together observers and modellers working towards understanding the ecosystems of massive halos, towards answering some of the most fundamental questions in galaxy evolution such as the role of AGN, the drivers of galaxy quenching, and how the baryon cycle operates within massive halos from today back to the epoch of reionisation. We aim to strategise how UK scientists can best take advantage of revolutionary new facilities coming online such as JWST, eROSITA, and SKA precursors, while positioning ourselves for longer-term investments such as E-ELT, Euclid, ATLAST, and Athena.

Participation is by invitation only. If you have been invited to register, please do so on the registration page.

Registration deadline is 17 September 2022.

Registration fee of £50 includes daily catered lunch and coffee/tea breaks, a wine reception on Monday evening, and a workshop dinner on Tuesday evening.

Participants should book their own travel and accommodations. Here is a list of nearby places to stay.
