Cosmic Radiation Fields: Sources in the early Universe

CRF 2010
November 9-12, 2010
Desy, Germany
The workshop "Cosmic Radiation Fields - Sources in the Early Universe" (CRF 2010) focuses on the connection between the extragalactic infrared background and sources in the early universe, in particular stars powered by dark matter burning (Dark Stars; DS). The workshop covers the following topics: the cosmic infrared background, formation of early stars, dark stars, effect of dark matter in the early universe, dark matter halos, primordial star formation rate, and reionization.

Further information can be found on the conference webpage:

Organizing committee: Tanja Kneiske, Martin Raue, Dominik Elsaesser, Alexander Gewering-Peine, Peter Hausschildt, Dieter Horns, and Andreas Maurer.

Proceedings editorial board: Martin Raue (chair), Tanja Kneiske, Dieter Horns, Dominik Elsaesser, and Peter Hauschildt
