Formatted Abstract/Summary
We describe the ‘WiggleZ’ spectroscopic survey of 400,000 star-forming galaxies selected from a combination of GALEX ultra-violet and SDSS + RCS2 optical imaging. The fundamental goal is a detection of the baryonic acoustic oscillations in galaxy clustering at high-redshift (0.5 < z < 1) and a precise measurement of the equation of state of dark energy from this purely geometric and robust method. The survey has already started on the 3.9m Anglo-Australian Telescope using the AAOmega spectrograph, and planned to complete during 2009. The WWW page for the survey can be found at
