ACAMAR is sponsoring a four-day workshop on Gas in Galaxies, to be held from 25-28 July, 2023 in Western Australia.

The flow of gas to and from the interstellar medium (ISM) and circumgalactic medium (CGM) is important in controlling the star-formation rates of galaxies. The flow is controlled by many physical parameters such as mass, specific angular momentum, collisions, tidal forces, temperature, ram pressure and feedback mechanisms. A better understanding of complex nature of gas flows in galaxies is being provided by new optical IFU, new 21-cm HI radio observations, and new molecular line observations. The headline facilities for Australia-China collaboration are the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope and the Chinese Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), which are each world-class facilities producing leading research inthe field. Team members already enjoy a good level of collaboration.

This workshop will discuss:

  1. HI science related to ISM physics, galaxy evolution, and cosmology;
  2. Synergies with multiwavelength optical, IR and millimetre facilities;
  3. How to most effectively extract science from existing and up-coming surveys and how to coordinate to maximise science impact.

There will be presentations and discussions on the following topics:

  • Milky Way
  • Low-z extragalactic: detailed analysis
  • Low-z extragalactic: statistical analysis
  • High-z extragalactic and absorption lines
  • Low and high-z molecular lines
  • HI science for the up-coming data of WALLABY, FAST, MeerKAT, etc.
  • Multiwavelength synergies and simulations
  • HI science specifically for the SKA era


  • VR for shared data analysis
  • VR for remote meetings
