A scattering approach for correlated one-dimensional systems is developed. The perfect contact to charge reservoirs is encoded in time-dependent boundary conditions. The conductance matrix for an arbitrary gated wire, respecting charge conservation, is expressed through a dynamic scattering matrix. Two applications are developed. First, it is shown that the dc conductance is equal to for any model with conserved total left- and right-moving charges. Second, the ac conductance matrix is explicitly computated for the Tomonaga-Luttinger model (TLL).
