Quasar science with HSC: Toward the first results
January 14-16, 2014
ASIAA, Taipei

The formation and evolution of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) are among the most exciting and challenging topics in astronomy and astrophysics. New wide-field deep surveys are required to tackle these issues, and Subaru's new wide-field camera (Hyper Suprime-Cam; HSC) will bring promising opportunities to make breakthroughs in this research field. Since the HSC-SSP (Subaru Strategic Program) survey will start soon (in Spring 2014), it is a good time to have an intensive face-to-face discussion among HSC collaboration astronomers about scientific opportunities from the first-year data.

We will focus on doing science and writing papers based on the first-year data of the coming HSC-SSP survey. These discussions in advance of the start of the HSC-SSP survey will maximize the scientific output in the theme of SMBH studies.

We will focus on the following topics, among others:
