SAZERAC presents:

The cosmological 21 cm signal

Date: 14-17 March 2022

Time: TBC

Location: Zoom, YouTube, and Slack

Observations of the 21 cm signal have the potential to provide precision constraints on astrophysics and cosmology from the Dark Ages to the present day (150 >~ z >~ 0). The construction of new radio telescopes over the last decade has led to significant progress including a potential first detection of the sky-averaged 21 cm signal at Cosmic Dawn, physically constraining upper limits on the 21 cm power spectrum during the Epoch of Reionization and detections of the 21 cm signal in cross-correlation at lower redshifts. This SAZERAC meeting will bring the 21 cm cosmology community together to update each other on our work, discuss the remaining challenges ahead and foster new ideas and collaborations. Talk sessions will be organised around the following broad topics:

We invite researchers to submit their abstracts on this topic. During the selection for the contributed talks, priority will be given to graduate students and early-career scientists. To apply to give a talk we invite researchers to submit their abstracts on this topic via this link by 14 February 2022. To participate otherwise you need only sign-up for the general SAZERAC mailing list through which connection info will be shared. Additionally, discussion on the subject is encouraged between the participants through a Slack channel hosted by the SAZERAC team.
