The focus of this second symposium revisited the physics of birthing, launching and sustaining galactic superwinds in cosmological calculations. Since our first symposium, our participants had made significant advances in understanding the multiphase wind medium both theoretically and observationally. The aim of this symposium was to lay bare the main physical hurdles remaining in a proper physical and mathematical treatment of galactic superwinds, particularly in light of recent observational advances.
