We are pleased to announce that the first BHOLE Group 3 workshop will be held in the week of May 23-24, 2017. BHOLE (Black hole-Host Lifecycle Evolution) is a National Key Program for Science and Technology Research and Development, supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. The BHOLE project studies the physical connection between supermassive black holes and galaxies through cosmic time. It consists of four research groups, and Group 3 focuses on high-redshift universe and cosmic reionization.

The workshop will cover the following topics: searches of very high-redshift quasars (and supermassive black holes) and galaxies, physical properties of these objects and their implications for reionization, connections between black holes and their host galaxies in the early universe, theory and simulations, and so on.

We will have a series of short talks and extensive discussions during the workshop.
