Abstract: The Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) probes the evolution of galaxies in the mid- and far-infrared range. We present the ISO deep surveys, in particular the FIRBACK survey at 170 μm, and their cosmological implications. All these results led us to build a phenomenological model of galaxy evolution which fits all the mid-infrared to submillimeter existing data, and allows scientific preparation of forthcoming space missions (SIRTF, Planck, and FIRST), as well as ground observations in the submillimeter and millimeter range.
