---------------
1. Weak lensing measurements of cosmic shear for the European Space Agency's Euclid mission
2. Galaxy formation - spatially resolved star formation and stellar populations
3. High redshift sub-mm galaxies
4. Observing first galaxies with future observing facilities
5. The Planck Sky Model: a model of sky emission for the Planck survey
