Energy and mass interchanges in the interstellar medium (ISM) of our Galaxy drive and are driven by the life-cycles of stars. From stellar point-like injection to global input from spiral density waves, the range of scales relevant to ISM phenomena is vast. Understanding this Galactic Ecosystem requires observations of the different phases of the ISM over very large angular scales. The Canadian Galactic Plane Survey (CGPS) is a project to combine radio, millimeter, and infrared surveys of the Galactic plane to provide arcminute-scale images of all major components of the interstellar medium over a large portion of the Galactic disk.

In June 2009, the CGPS team invited astronomers from all over the world to participate in a conference to celebrate the success of this paradigm-breaking survey of the Milky Way and its impact on ISM research over the past decade. The CGPS project has demonstrated the central role that surveys can play in advancing astrophysical research.

As we stand poised to make use of a new generation of telescopes designed primarily as survey instruments, it is time to assess the state of the field. The program for this conference was designed to bring together scientists
working on the ISM of the Milky Way and nearby galaxies to discuss recent advances in both observations and theoretical understanding of all the major constituents of the ISM. The conference covered (i) Galactic Structure
and Dynamics, (ii) Dust and Molecular Clouds, (iii) the Neutral ISM, (iv) the Ionized ISM, (v) the Magneto-Ionic Medium, (vi) Massive Stars
and the ISM, and (vii) New Observational Advances and Future Prospects.
