Abstract: The -Extreme starbursts in the local universe- workshop was held at theInsituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia in Granada, Spain on 21-25 June 2010.Bearing in mind the advent of a new generation of facilities such as JWST,Herschel, ALMA, eVLA and eMerlin, the aim of the workshop was to bring togetherobservers and theorists to review the latest results. The purpose of theworkshop was to address the following issues: what are the main modes oftriggering extreme starbursts in the local Universe? How efficiently are starsformed in extreme starbursts? What are the star formation histories of localstarburst galaxies? How well do the theoretical simulations model theobservations? What can we learn about starbursts in the distant Universethrough studies of their local counterparts? How important is the role ofextreme starbursts in the hierarchical assembly of galaxies? How are extremestarbursts related to the triggering of AGN in the nuclei of galaxies? Overall,41 talks and 4 posters with their corresponding 10 minutes short talks werepresented during the workshop. In addition, the workshop was designed withemphasis on discussions, and therefore, there were 6 discussion sessions of upto one hour during the workshop. Here is presented a summary of the purposes ofthe workshop as well as a compilation of the abstracts corresponding to each ofthe presentations. The summary and conclusions of the workshop along with adescription of the future prospects by Sylvain Veilleux can be found in thelast section of this document. A photo of the assistants is included.
