Oral Abstract

Invited talk (I0.1) Henk Hoekstra ()

Overview of NOVA Network 1 activities

The research carried out in NW1 focuses on cosmology and the formation and evolution of galaxies from high redshift to the present. Although this covers a wide range of questions, the main science themes that drive current activities are i) the dawn of the Universe; ii) the nature of the main constituents of the Universe; iii) the process of galaxy assembly. In this presentation I will present some of the research done in NW1 and the plans for the future.
