The Epoch of Reionisation (Amphi 10)

The aim of this workshop, organised by the PNCG and the AS SKA-LOFAR, is to bring together theorists, experts in numerical simulations, and observers around the recent advances and prospects in the study of Cosmological Reionization. Discussions will include presentations on the different probes of the Epoch of Reionization (CMB, quasars, galaxies at high redshift,…), modelling and simulations of the Reionization process around sources and extend to observables. Latest results and future experiments will also be discussed. This workshop is timely, given that the first Planck results on Reionization will be published in Spring, observations of the end of Reionization are getting more numerous, first results of radio observatories are expected and the Reionization community is getting organised around future experiments that will detect signatures of the EoR.
