This conference will bring together world leading experts in galaxy dynamics and cosmology in order to promote collaborative efforts across theoretical, computational, and observational disciplines to try to answer to fundamental questions about the role of gas in galaxy dynamics and evolution.
Major topics include: Scaling Relations - Gas as a dynamical tracer at low z - The role of gas in disk galaxies - Gas in the Milky Way - The circulation of gas in galaxies - Gas in satellite galaxies - The role of gas in galaxy mergers - Quenching of galaxies
