This is a small, but focused workshop, whose aim is to provoke a very active and fruitful discussion among a small group of participants which includes both galaxy modelling community and DPAC teams. As such, this is not a forum to present current work, but rather to establish the needs and the adequate interface to maximize the scientific returns from the Gaia mission, in the shortest time. Participants are encouraged to use their presentations to put forward proposals, needs and methods to establish a dialogue that could put those proposals and needs within a realistic framework.
