    About the workshop

    The James Webb Space Telescope is ushering in a new era in studying the earliest epochs of the Universe. Dubbed the “First Light Machine”, JWST is already revealing unprecedented insights and unexpected mysteries about the first galaxies that lit up the Universe during the so-called Epoch of Reionisation (EoR). Situating and contextualising these ground-breaking observations within our current models of how galaxies like our Milky Way came to be is a forefront challenge in astrophysics today.

    Edinburgh’s Institute for Astronomy (IfA) and Copenhagen’s Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) are two of the leading institutes involved in utilizing JWST and other observations to probe the EoR. This workshop is the second of two bringing together DAWN and IfA astrophysicists working on early galaxy evolution, with the goal of creating synergies and fostering collaborations that will strengthen and benefit researchers at both institutes.

    Time and venue

    The meeting will take place on 26–28 August at the Cosmic Dawn Center, Copenhagen.

    Getting there

    The workshop will take place at the DAWN's location in the Niels Bohr Building, meeting room 02.2.I.158, Rådmandsgade 64, 2nd floor (counting from 0).

    Busses 6A and 5C will take you from Nørreport in the center of the city. Alternatively, it's a good 30 minutes' walk.

    From the Central Station, you can take metro line M3 "via Frederiksberg" eight stops, getting off at Skjold's Plads, from where it's a 10 minutes' walk.

    When you exit from the baggage pickup, you will see this:



    Nørreport is the 9th stop.
