    Characterizing Galaxies with Spectroscopy with a view for JWST
    from 23 Oct 2017 through 27 Oct 2017

 

Description  & Aim

 

The purpose of the planned workshop is to bring together 55 leading researchers working on diverse spectroscopic observations of galaxies across cosmic time to engage in a lively discussion about future scientific possibilities with JWST. We will be particularly interested in encouraging participants to (1) consider how the wide spectral range and sensitivity available to JWST instruments will enable observational programs not thought feasible to the present and (2) brainstorm about what exciting new science can be done by combining the diverse set of spectral lines and features in the rest-frame UV with those available in the rest-frame optical. We are hoping that all participants will come away from the workshop with a few new ideas/collaborations and an increased appreciation of how rich future JWST data will be for performing a variety of scientific endeavors. Specific topics include high-z galaxies, theory, Population III stars, outflows, the interstellar medium, gravitational lensing, and local analogues of galaxies in the early universe.
