X-ray observations are providing exciting results about the formation and evolution of galaxies, bringing new insight into the interplay between galaxies and the diverse physical components of which they are composed, and with which they interact. This workshop focuses on the diverse physics occurring within and around galaxies, with a particular emphasis on diffuse hot gas, but including galactic nuclei, the growth of SMBH, stellar/AGN feedback, stars and star formation, and environmental effects (e.g., stripping, mergers). The goals of this workshop are to bring together observers and theorists to review what we have learned in the last decade and to identify important but unsolved problems whose solution could significantly improve our understanding of galaxies, looking towards the most effective use of X-ray observatories in the next decade.
