SAZERAC presents:

Reionisation and the CMB

29/30 April 2021 Time: TBD

SOC: Marian Douspis, Adélie Gorce, Gil Holder, Mathieu Langer and Saleem Zaroubi

Location: Zoom, YouTube, and Slack

CMB study is at a turning point: Planck has recently given its final results on large-scale observations, whilst, on small scales, second-generation experiments such as ACT and SPT are currently publishing their results and ambitious projects are coming - for example, SO and CMB-S4. On the other side, as extensively studied in the previous sips, the quality of reionisation data is steadily improving, with new data incoming. For example, 21cm experiments such as HERA are getting closer and closer to detection, whilst JWST will soon launch. This opens new perspectives in terms of cross-correlations. That is why now is the right time to gather the community and discuss these perspectives together, in a SAZERAC sip which will tackle the following questions: What can we learn about reionisation from CMB small- and large-scale data? What are the current limits and what needs to be done to overcome them? What can we expect from next-generation CMB experiments such as SO, CMB-S4 and LiteBird? How will other observations, such as 21cm, high-z galaxies and intensity mapping, complement and support CMB information?

We invite researchers, especially early-career researchers (including undergraduate and postgraduate students), to submit propositions of talks to answer one, or several, of these questions. Please use this link to submit your abstracts before 15 April.
