The First Billion Years - Part 2

August 22-23, 2011
California Institute of Technology - Pasadena, CA 91125

Workshop Overview:

The goals of this wrap-up workshop are:

  1. To develop a technical follow-up plan that defines the requirements for a CO high-z mapping experiment.
  2. We will also explore broader questions of interest to the EoR and Dark Ages.
