We are on the cusp of an exciting era for extragalactic astronomy: with the start of ALMA operations, the continuation of the Herschel mission and the commissioning of a wide range of new sub/millimetre instruments. These facilities will combine to provide an unprecedented insights into the physics of obscured star-formation and AGN activity in galaxies from the Local Group out to the highest redshifts. Herschel and ground-based submillimetre cameras, such as LABOCA and the newly-commissioned SCUBA-2, are providing us with panoramic surveys of the strongly-evolved far-infrared luminous population out to very high redshifts, z>6. Equally important are their observations of the Milky Way and nearby galaxies, which are revealing the processes which underlie this cosmic evolution, in particular the physics of star formation and feedback. With telescopes like ALMA and PdBI, we are starting to measure the gas content of galaxies over a large range of cosmic time - another crucial piece in the puzzle of galactic evolution. These sessions will feature the latest observational results from this field, from observations of star formation in our own Galaxy to observations of the gas, dust and star formation in galaxies at the highest redshifts. We also encourage theoretical talks by researchers interested in interpreting these observations and talks by those who wish to consider the future possibilities in this field.

Provisional sessions titles:

Star formation in the Local Group
Star formation and AGN from z=0 to z=1
The ISM from z=0 to z=6
Star formation and AGN from z=1 to z=6
