A fundamental goal of modern astronomy is to understand the formation and evolution of the galaxy
population as a whole. There has been spectacular progress towards this goal over the last 15 years,
especially with the discovery of new populations of galaxies and supermassive black holes in the distant
universe. The star formation history, or rate at which stars are born in galaxies per unit volume of the
universe, is our primary tool for studying how galaxies form and evolve over cosmic time. However, there
are still many unresolved issues.
This workshop will target galaxy evolution after the reionization period, focusing on some key topics where we think scientific discussions between leading observational and theoretical experts will lead to substantial progress.
Specifically, the goals for this workshop are:
