This conference was devoted to new developments in our understanding of the high redshift universe. Observations from across the electromagnetic spectrum are presented, as well as their theoretical interpretation. These new findings are altering astronomers' views about how and when the familiar structures of stars and galaxies formed and evolved.See more details below
