Conference Summary: Themes and Questions about the Disk-Halo Interaction
University of Tasmania, Maths and Physics - Bag 37, Hobart, TAS 7005, Australia
The papers in this volume represent a broad spectrum of observational, theoretical, and computational astrophysics, sharing as a unifying core the Disk-Halo Interaction in the Milky Way and other spiral galaxies. This topic covers a wide range of Galactic and extra-galactic research, built on a foundation of numerous and diverse physical processes. This summary groups the papers according to six themes, with some historical background and finally a look to the future. The final message is that the astrophysical techniques discussed and reviewed at this conference will grow over the next decade to answer even more fundamental questions about galaxy evolution and the history of the universe.
