Key Topics


  1. Physical Structure and phase distribution of the ISM in a galaxy
  2. Multi-wavelength observations of ISM in the Galaxy and nearby galaxies
  3. Recent theory/MHD simulation of ISM in a galaxy: magnetic field and turbulence
  4. Integrated picture of interstellar structure in a galaxy: relation among gas, dust, magnetic fields, cosmic rays, etc.
  5. The interstellar disk-halo connection in galaxies.
  6. Interplay between stars and ISM: star formation and feedback.
  7. Observations vs Theory of the ISM.
  8. How does the Galactic ISM help us understand the ISM in other galaxies?
  9. How does the nearby ISM help us understand the ISM in the distant past?
