Gas, Dust, and Star-Formation in Galaxies from the Local to Far Universe

     This meeting will be the opportunity to exchange about the new findings, but also the doubt and the problems of the communities studying close and distant objects. The program will be split into long pedagogical review talks, short review talks introducing each sub-sessions, contributed talks, and discussions.

The main topics covered by the conference are:

      Dust properties: mid-infrared to millimeter SEDs of galaxies, enrichment of the ISM across cosmic time
      Gas content and ISM conditions: estimation of the gas mass, CO SLEDs, FIR line emission from PDRs
      Star-formation laws: transforming gas into stars, efficiency, dynamical time-scales
      Measurements of the star-formation rates: consistency of IR, UV, Halpha, and radio SFR estimates, accuracy of          these tracers
      Connection between star formation and AGN activity: gas and dust diagnostics, impact on the ISM.
