RESUMEN
El resumen ser´a traducido al espa~nol por los editores. The advances in bolometric detector technol-
ogy during the last 15 years have allowed (sub)millimetre wavelength measurements to contribute important
data to some of the most challenging questions in observational cosmology. The availability of large-format
filled-array cameras during the next decade, however, promises to provide FIR to millimetre observations with
unprecedented imaging fidelity. The simultaneous increase in the telescope collecting-area of new facilities will
also provide the observational data with greater sensitivity and resolution. In this brief review I highlight
the major results from the first 6 years of (sub)millimetre extragalactic surveys, in particular those that have
offered constraints on the evolutionary history of high-redshift AGN and optically-obscured dusty starburst
galaxies. I also illustrate some of the difficulties and ambiguities that arise in the interpretation of the exist-
ing submillimetre data and their follow-up multi-wavelength observations. Finally I describe why, with the
combined optical and IR capabilities of the GTC and the future FIR to millimetre wavelength experiments
(BLAST and the LMT), we can shortly expect to answer the outstanding questions regarding the nature, red-
