The Near-Field / Deep-Field Connection

The Southern California Center for Galaxy Evolution (CGE) and the University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center (HiPACC) are bringing together theorists and observers for a three-day conference on the Near-Field Deep-Field Connection.

Topics of the workshop to be covered will include:

  • local relics of reionization,
  • connections between first stars and local metallicity,
  • the evidence for and impact of IMF variation,
  • the CGM of the Milky Way and beyond,
  • dwarf galaxies at high and low z, and
  • star-formation histories near and far.
