Event description: 

Intergalactic Medium (IGM)-based cosmology established itself as a solid cosmological probe with the wide success of the SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS). With the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) survey well into its commissioning phase and starting the full survey in 2020, we are taking a look at the accomplishments of SDSS-III with regards to IGM-based cosmology and discussing the exciting science and new statistical challenges in the era of DESI.
