The advent of truly large single-fiber spectroscopic as well as multi-wavelength photometric surveys has boosted our understanding of galaxy formation/evolution. The technical possibilities of Integral Field Spectrsocopy have the potential to provide another such boost. The goal of this conference is to provide an overview over the range of topics susceptible to be adressed through IFS surveys. We aim to bring together all significant players involved in on-going or future IFS surveys, to take stock of what has already been achieved, what are the immediate perspectives and what might be promises of the future. We also aim to bring in interested scientists from the community, working both in observations and theory, to help develop awareness of the possibilities and to trigger theoretical effort capable of making full use of the observational advances.
