Abstract: Dust is a key component of the Universe, especially regarding galaxy evolution, playing an essential role for both the physics and chemistry of the interstellar medium. In this paper, we give a brief review of interstellar dust. We describe the main dust observables and how they allow us to constrain dust properties. We discuss the dust life-cycle and the dust evolution in the ISM. We also present a physical dust model, DustEM.
