Abstract

In April 2021 more than 200 participants gathered on Zoom for a meeting to discuss what we have learned about galaxy evolution using spectroscopic surveys, and to pay a special tribute to the Visible Multi-Object Spectrograph (VIMOS), which carried out some of the largest spectroscopic galaxy surveys to date and helped to pave the way for ongoing and future facilities. Despite being delayed twice and having to be adapted to an online format, the meeting was well received and many high- impact results were presented by a diverse body of participants. We present the organisation, lessons learned, and legacy of this workshop.
