Giant planets are recognised to greatly influence their host environment by shaping their natal disk, the architecture of planetary systems and the distribution of small bodies. In the Solar System, giant planets are also the hosts of systems of rings and moons, some of the latter being a target for upcoming space missions.

Despite several decades of theoretical investigations and rapid recent progress, some major questions remain regarding the formation and dynamical evolution of giant planets and their moons.
- How much solid material is accreted by a giant planet?
- How fast is the gaseous envelope accreted?
- What is the response of the protoplanetary disc to the formation of a giant planet in terms of migration, gap formation and the distribution of dust/planetesimals.
- What can regular and irregular moons tells us about the history of their hosts?

This session welcomes all abstracts with a focus on the formation and dynamical evolution of systems of giant planets and their moons, from theoretical or observational perspective.
