      The IAU Executive Committee recently selected the meeting entitled "Formation and evolution of galaxy outskirts" as the first IAU Symposium of 2016, to be held in Toledo (Spain) from 14 to 18 March 2016.

         This symposium aims to provide the reference for the study of the outskirts of galaxies, both in terms of our current understanding and to prepare an optimal exploitation of upcoming facilities. The stellar, dust and gas content of galaxy outskirts will be discussed, going from resolved stellar populations in the Local Group to the study of high- redshift systems. Such a broad approach is needed to improve our knowledge on the assembly and evolution of these elusive regions and to establish their role on the evolution of galaxies as a whole and on their interplay between these galaxies and the intergalactic medium surrounding them.
