Traces of new Physics: insights into the unknown
The DEX XVII workshop invites colleagues from Durham, Edinburgh, Lancaster, Newcastle and St Andrews-- to meet virtually and present our recent advances in extragalactic astronomy, including cosmology, galaxy formation, AGN feedback, the very first stars and reionisation. In past meetings we have revisited big questions in astronomy that await for answers from the next generation of instruments and theoretical progress. During this meeting, let us share our insights into those unknowns, and explore possible traces of new physics. We aim to bring together observers and theorists to discuss progress in modelling, simulation and observations at the frontier. Along the way, we hope to create a space where we can freely exchange new ideas and which will foster collaborations among our respective research groups.
