Subject: The assembly of 'normal' galaxies at z~7 probed by ALMA

I will discuss a recent paper on ALMA observations of 3 high z galaxies, 6.8 < z < 7.1, searching for [CII] emission. Detected [CII] emission is interpreted as arising from accreting clumps of neutral gas, showing galactic assembly at z~7. I will discuss their observations, results, and simulations.

The paper, arXiv:1502.06634
