Scientific Rationale

The unprecedented high-precision data that are being gathered by current and forthcoming surveys will provide a new vision of our Galaxy as well as a challenging window into the high redshift Universe. These massive amount of new data needs to be interpreted and understood within a cosmological framework. Observations of the chemo-dynamical properties of baryons in galaxies of different morphologies up to very high redshifts will also be available when new observatories start to collect data (ALMA, ELT, LSST).

Galaxy formation models have improved in the last decade due to the advent of faster and better computational infrastructures and to the development of more sophisticated numerical codes. However, a profound discussion is needed to optimize the confrontation of models with the observational data.

Our workshop aims at providing a motivated environment to promote the discussions of the latest results, with special emphasis in the comparison between numerical results and the huge amount of new observational data that are been collected by the ongoing and futures surveys. The meeting will include extended talks to provide students and young researchers with more detailed information on state-of-art observational results and galaxy formation models as well as reviews and contributed talks.
