Cosmic metals impact a wide range of astrophysics including the evolution of
stars, galaxies, and the ISM/CGM. The 2017 STScI Spring Symposium aims to
bring together both multi-wavelength and multi-discipline communities to
understand metal production, transport, evolution, and distribution. We
will highlight results from UV astronomy, which is now celebrating a first half

and JWST to ensure that the next half century of UV astronomy is as exciting as
