Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe”, will bring together an international group of experts to review the current state of the art in the study of the high redshift universe and discuss how best to use giant telescopes to learn about it. These new eyes will have the potential to transform our understanding of the formation and early evolution of galaxies and black holes, first light and cosmic reionization, as well as the evolution of the intergalactic and circumgalactic media, by themselves or in combination with other planned facilities.

This series of three meetings is a “sequel” to the “Dark Universe” conferences held in 2018, and features significant involvement by TMT International Science Development Teams (ISDT) members.
