"AEGIS: DEEP's Panchromatic Vista of Distant Galaxies and AGN's"

Abstract. I will give an overview of the Keck intermediate redshift DEEP programs and the AEGIS multiwavelength surveys and reasons why they are particularly well suited to study distant galaxies and AGN's. After a brief summary of our major science findings, more details will be given 1) about a new measure of kinematics to track disk evolution, 2) about a rare class of very low metallicity but very luminous galaxies, 3) about our discovery that galactic winds appear to be common at z ~1.4, and 4) about a hyper-LIRG whose energy comes from both star formation and AGN activity. I will close with a summary as well as a preview of several on-going, new, and planned surveys (Spitzer:SEDS and HST:CANDELS) that will dramatically enhance the information about very distant galaxies, AGN's, and supernovae.
