Quasars and their absorption lines - Large Programme collaboration

There will be a workshop at DARK from Nov 5 - 7, ´related to an X-shooter large programme on the VLT.  List of participants here >>

Within the X-shooter Large Programme collaboration there are several sub-projects that have already been defined. We are very soon at the point where all the data for the 100 QSOs have been collected and reduced, such that the data is readily accessible for further analysis and real science.

The purpose of this workshop is to get started with the science work, find out who is interested in what project, and define work tasks for all groups. The programme will include overview talks by each of the team leaders, followed by related talks.


Some sessions are open to everyone, and we will have two general talks:

Monday, Nov 4:   12:00 - 12:30 
Lunch talk by Sara Ellison: "Galaxy mergers in the nearby universe"

Wednedsday Nov 6: 14:00 - 18:00 
Various talks on absorption lines, QSO physics, Lya forest power spectrum 

Thursday Nov 7:  14:00 - 14:30 
Cake talk by Sebastian Lopez
