Galactic Winds Near and Far
The conference "Galactic Winds Near and Far" took place from 2 - 8 June 2013 on Ringberg castle, located near Tegernsee, Bavaria.
The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers working on galactic winds across a wide range of scales, environments and cosmic epochs, to provide a firm observational grounding from which the next generation of feedback models can be developed. Fundamental questions about how winds are launched and driven in different environments, and whether they can quench star formation on galactic scales, will be addressed in the light of the latest observations of molecular, atomic and ionized gas. The impact of these developments will be put in a broader theoretical framework to address the role played by outflows in galaxy evolution at low and high redshift. This conference will pave the way for future detailed studies, focusing on the synergy between observations & theory.
