Unveiling the Mass: Extracting and Interpreting Galaxy Masses
This workshop will provide an opportunity to reflect on the derivation
and accuracy of gaseous, stellar and total (baryons + dark matter)
masses in galaxies and M/L ratios of cosmological structures.
We also plan a celebration of the life and career of Vera Rubin
on the eve of her 81st birthday.

Note: Attendance will be limited to ~140 people
