Place: Room 507 (Pere Pascual)
15:30: Nicolás Busca (APC, Université Paris-Diderot, Paris):
"New results on BAO cosmology measurements using the Lya forest at z~2.3, and future prospects".
16:15: Nicholas Ross (Institute of Astronomy, University of Edinburgh):
"Opportunities for exploring the physics and evolution of quasars and galaxies: the case of Extremely Red Quasars".
17:00: General discussion on upcoming opportunities from large-scale astronomical surveys.
A challenge for the future is to develop efficient methods for a combined use of the large data sets from a wide variety of surveys using different observational techniques (e.g, DESI, DES, WEAVE, JPAS, GAIA, LOFAR, LSST, CMB surveys...), to learn about a broad range of fundamental questions in astrophysics and cosmology: galaxy evolution, dark matter, dark energy, LIGO sources, cosmological primordial perturbations... Everyone is welcome to participate and share ideas and comments on recent science results.
