Opportunities and Challenges in Intensity Mapping

March 21-23, 2016 @ KIPAC/Stanford

Intensity mapping seeks to trace specific spectral lines (such as HI, CO, [CII], or Ly-a) across cosmological volumes, for scientific purposes ranging from constraints on dark energy to probing the epoch of reionization to understanding the star-formation history of the Universe. Multiple intensity mapping experiments are planned or underway, and it is timely to bring together theorists, observers and instrumentalists to leverage the efforts of individual groups in this developing field. The goal of the workshop is to identify the most pressing challenges for the field and begin the work of understanding how to overcome them.
