- The End of the Dark Ages: First Light and Reionization
- Assembly of Galaxies
- The Birth of Stars and Protoplanetary Systems
- Planetary Systems and the Origins of Life.
The product of the workshop will be a report (rather than proceedings). The report will, on the one hand, present the common science cases in the above areas. On the other hand, it will identify cases where synergy and complementarity between JWST and the ELTs lead to instrument priorities and programme strategies.
We believe that the workshop will be an international milestone for all concerned projects.
The workshop is particularly timely for the E-ELT, as it will feedback into the instrument suite selection of the E-ELT and serve as input to the E-ELT construction proposal. At the same time, JWST instruments are essentially complete and the joint telescope/instrument parameters well understood.
