Title of your presentation : Observations of gamma-ray bursts at high redshift

Thanks to their extreme luminosities, gamma-ray bursts are potentially powerful probes of the high redshift universe. They pinpoint nascent star-forming galaxies, and their bright afterglows provide the backlight for absorption studies of the IGM and host ISM. I will review ongoing campaigns to locate and study high-z GRBs, and consider prospects for their future use.
