The future of bolometer surveys

A. W. Blain (Caltech)

The next generation of wide-field surveys will provide a rich opportunity for investigating key examples of the population of the most luminous galaxies, in order to carry out a full census of their properties. While the results could highlight the most unusual and exotic regions of the high-redshift Universe, it will remain important both to study the objects in detail, and to push deeper to understand the connection with conventional optically-selected galaxies at high redshifts. ALMA will be the key instrument for both goals.
