This workshop aims to bring together observers and theorists to discuss the latest developments in our understanding of the first stars, black holes and galaxies and to devise the next major steps.

Topics included are:

First stars:
- Formation, evolution, nucleosynthesis and death
- Initial mass function
- Missing ingredients: magnetic fields, cosmic rays, radiative hydrodynamics
- Extensions to standard model: dark matter-baryon streaming, dark matter annihilation heating


First Galaxies:
- Formation, predicting their properties
- IGM reionization and metal enrichment
- Co-evolution of black holes/stars, seeding super-massive black holes
- Role of turbulence
- In-situ growth vs mergers


Empirical signatures
- In-situ probes
- Near-field cosmological probes
- Aggregate (cosmic background) probes
- High-z transients
- Gamma Ray Bursts, pair-instability supernovae
