Multi-wavelength high redshift surveys

Principal contact: K. Caputi ( )

Organisers: K. Caputi (ETH Zurich, Switzerland), C. de Breuck, V. Mainieri (ESO), F. Fiore (INAF-Rome, Italy), R. Ivison (Edinburgh, UK), M. Jarvis (Hertfordshire), S. Oliver (Sussex, UK), I. Smail (Durham, UK)

The multiple deep and wide-area surveys being performed in the coming years from X-rays through far-IR/submillimetre and radio wavelengths will allow us to address many new problems on galaxy evolution up to very high redshifts. Several facilities of strategic importance for European astronom will soon be operational, such as e.g. eROSITA, VISTA, JWST, Herschel, SCUBA2, ALMA, LOFAR and eMERLIN. Exploiting the synergies between these telescopes will be fundamental to maximise the scientific output of future surveys.

The aims of this symposium are to summarise recent results on high-redshift normal galaxies and AGN obtained with current multi-wavelength studies, and discuss the potential of future surveys to solve key open questions in galaxy evolution. The symposium will be divided into five blocks:

  1. The earliest galaxies and AGN
  2. Galaxy/AGN evolution: star formation and stellar-mass assembly
  3. Galaxy/AGN evolution: star formation, AGN activity and black-hole buildup
  4. Galaxy/AGN large scale structure and environment
  5. Future multi-wavelength surveys.

Blocks 1 to 4 will be opened by one or two review talks, followed by several contributed talks. The last block will be composed of contributed talks that present the characteristics and science goals of forthcoming deep/wide-area surveys at different wavelengths.
