HI absorption 2017: a workshop on the status of and preparation for the upcoming surveys

One of the ways to explore gas in the Universe is using HI absorption observations. The new radio telescopes -ASKAP, MeerKAT and Apertif on the WSRT- offer exciting new possibilities for science using HI absorption. Coordinating the groups planning to exploit these data was one of the motives for a small but very lively workshop [...]
