Understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies remains one of the great challenges of modern cosmology. Key outstanding questions include: What are the physical processes driving the formation of stars in individual galaxies?  How do galaxies exchange matter and energy with their intergalactic environments?  How do the impressive variety of galactic structures that we observe today assemble?  How do supermassive black holes affect the evolution of their host galaxies?  And how do large-scale structures of galaxies assemble across cosmic time?  We will address all these questions from the observational and theoretical perspectives, looking ahead to future progress from upcoming facilities.
