SYMPOSIUM 3: Dwarf Galaxies: Keys to Galaxy Formation and Evolution


While many lines of evidence highlight the role of dwarf galaxies (DGs) in the cosmic scenery, as possible building blocks of Hubble-type galaxies and important contributors to the chemical enrichment of the universe, the formation and evolution of these systems is only sketchily understood. The nearby Universe reveals
a diversity of DGs, spanning a wide range in their photometric, morphological and chemical properties. Does this sizeable galaxy population share a common evolutionary history or rather consist of physically and evolutionary distinct subclasses?

This mini-symposium aims at providing a forum for observers and theoreticians to exchange ideas and new results on the many evolutionary aspects of DGs near and far: what have we learned thus far and which are the main opportunities and challenges for he near future.
