Metal Production and Distribution in a Hierarchical Universe

Rencontres de l'Observatoire de Paris 2013 - ESO Workshop

21 - 25 Oct. 2013

The main objective of this meeting is to bring together observers measuring elemental abundances in different environments: the Milky Way (stars, interstellar medium), the external galaxies (dwarf galaxies in the Local group, spirals), the high redshift clouds, and to connect the recent observations in these different fields to constrain the hierarchical building of the Universe.
