2010 Aspen Winter Conference on Astrophysics
February 7-13, 2010

The High Redshift Universe: A Multi-Wavelength View

Aspen Center 1 The goal of this conference is to bring together observers, theorists, and simulators working on all aspects of the high redshift universe. Planned topics include galaxy formation and evolution; chemical and radiative feedback; cosmic reionization; current observations of high-redshift galaxies at nearIR through radio wavelengths; and 21-cm cosmology. The central theme will be the major effect of feedback from early galaxies on the large-scale cosmic environment at early times.
