The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute of the University of Groningen organizes on September 10-12, 2018 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 we will also celebrate the career of Thijs van der
Hulst, who will then enjoy the first weeks of his formal ‘retirement’.
The workshop will take place at various venues in the vibrant city of Groningen as well as the rustic countryside near Dwingeloo and Westerbork in Drenthe. For more information and registration details please visit the eventpage
