Scientific context

The key issues in astrophysics and cosmology are: Where and how are the baryons hidden today? Answers to this questions will be provided by the detection, mapping, and assessment of the physical properties of warm and hot ionised baryons at large cosmic scales. It will be based on a statistically consistent, joint analysis of complementary multiwavelength data combined from radio, infrared, optical and X-ray surveys.


After the great success of the first two ByoPiC workshops in Malta (2018) and Hossegor (2019), we organise a third and final workshop before the end of the project.
The meeting will take place near Porto-Vecchio in Corsica, from April 30 to May 5, 2023, and will focus on 4 topics related to the main challenges of the project: intensive study of individual multiple systems, statistical methods to detect and reconstruct the cosmic web elements, modeling and hydrodynamical simulations to characterise the signals, and theoretical interpretations.
