Topics to be addressed are:
recent surveys of stars and gas in the halo,
studies of the distributions and the space motions of stars and gas,
studies of the space motions of Milky Way star clusters and dwarf galaxies,
models of the kinematics,
as well as the origins of the stars, the gas, and the dwarf galaxies.
