The James Webb Space Telescope will allow us to prierce deeper than ever before into the "Cosmic Dawn" of our universe to explore the formation and evolution of the first galaxies and quasars. In this conference we aim to bring together astronomers from around the world to present, discuss and interpret some of the first results on the early universe from the James Webb Space Telescope.

Some fo the open questions that we would like to address are:
How did the first supermassive black holes form and grow?
How do the physical properties of high-redshift galaxies differ from galaxies in the local universe?
Can we find evidence for feedback in high-redshift galaxies?
When and how did the universe become reionized and metal enriched?
Can we observe the stellar light of quasar host galaxies in the early universe?
You can pre-register to receive updates about the conference here.
