What do the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) tell us about the mechanisms/processes at work, forming and shaping galaxies in their environments through cosmic time? Focus is on farIR-submm, in its relation to the full SED, that is radio, near-IR, optical, uv and X-ray. Reporting and discussing observations with the successful Spitzer, Herschel, and WISE missions and in anticipation of ALMA.

Masterclass taught by key experts in the field preceding the 3-day Colloquium at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences in Amsterdam.
