The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute of the University of Groningen organises a three day workshop focusing on the observational and
astrophysical importance of neutral hydrogen in our understanding of galaxy evolution. This workshop aims to discuss in particular the use
of neutral hydrogen observations to investigate the relevant physical processes of gas accretion, removal and outflows. In addition, the
advantages offered by blind HI imaging surveys in determining the role of neutral, ionised and molecular gas in galaxy evolution will be
highlighted. This workshop also aims to explore the various observational and analysis methods that are required to fully explore
the large data volumes expected from forthcoming large HI imaging surveys that are planned with new facilities such as MeerKAT, ASKAP,
FAST and Apertif.
On this occasion the career of Thijs van der Hulst, who will then enjoy the first weeks of his formal ‘retirement’, will be celebrated.
