Abstract: We have recently performed the first large-scale radiative transfer simulations of reionization. These are run on top of the largest and most detailed simulations of early structure formation to date, with 4.3 billion particles and resolving halos down to dwarf galaxy scale in a very large, (100 h−1Mpc)3, volume. This allowed us for the first time to make realistic observational predictions at the relevant scales about the Epoch of Reionization based on detailed radiative transfer and structure formation simulations. We discuss the basic features of reionization derived from our simulations and discuss the implications of our results for the observability of high-redshift luminous sources.
