SAZERAC presents:

The First Stars

October 23 2020 14:00-18:00 UTC

SOC: Anna Schauer (chair), Greg Bryan, Zoltan Haiman, John Wise

Location: Zoom, YouTube, and Slack

The transition of the Universe from neutral to ionized, and from metal-free to metal-enriched, starts with the formation of the first stars. These objects are too faint to be observed with even the next generation of telescopes, and we rely on theoretical models or numerical simulations to understand their properties and the impact on their surroundings. In this one-day SAZERAC sip, we would like to bring the simulation community together to discuss some of the following questions:

We look forward to a lively meeting in the successful SAZERAC structure with contributed talks from a diverse set of speakers — giving priority to early career scientists. A slack channel will be used to moderate questions and increase the interactions between the conference members.

To apply for a contributed talk please fill in this form by 23 September. Selected contributed talks will be announced by 5 October.

To attend the sip without contributing you don't need to register but you should sign up for the SAZERAC community mailing list to stay up-to-date and recieve the Zoom/Slack logins.
