Galaxy evolution at high redshift: the legacy of deep near-infrared surveys
Deep infrared surveys have transformed our view of the distant Universe,
allowing us to trace the process of galaxy evolution over the last 13 billion years of cosmic history. However, despite much progress, many fundamental questions remain unanswered. In particular, we still do not understand which mechanisms are responsible for the termination of star formation in massive galaxies at high redshift, or what mechanisms lead to the formation of the Hubble sequence.

The aim of this session would be to review some of the recent results from key deep near-infrared surveys (e.g UDS, UltraVISTA, CANDELS), and explore what these can tell us about galaxy evolution at high redshift.
