Dwarf Galaxies: From the Deep Universe to the Present 

IAU General Assembly Symposium
August 20-24 2018
Vienna, Austria
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DUE FEBRUARY 28, 2018

Scientific Rationale: Dwarf galaxies are key tools for understanding structure formation and galaxy evolution across cosmic time. These low-mass systems allow us to not only gain a detailed understanding of stellar, chemical, and dynamical properties in the nearby universe, they also provide a unique window into the complex physics of the early universe. We are in an era where increasingly powerful observing facilities and simulations are inspiring new studies of the building blocks of structure at all epochs of the universe. This timely Symposium will bring together the broad dwarf galaxy community, with expertise ranging from local dwarf galaxies to massive star formation in low-metallicity environments, from simulations of feedback in a cosmological context to observations of the faint-end of the luminosity function at high redshift. 

Symposium Topics will cover:
  • Local Group Dwarf Galaxies
  • The Interstellar Medium and Star Formation in Dwarfs
  • Metallicity, Massive Stars, and Chemical Evolution
  • The Dwarf Galaxy - Environment Connection
  • Low-Mass Galaxies at High Redshift
  • Dwarfs as Cosmological Probes
  • The Future in Dwarf Galaxy Research
