Summary

Violent Star Formation from 30 Doradus to QSOs was the most recent international conference organized jointly by the Institute de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and the Royal Greenwich Observatory (RGO). The meeting took place in Puerto Naos, La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain), in November 1993.

This volume contains most of the invited talks and papers presented at the conference. It deals with observations, analysis and theory of violent star formation in its full dimension: from giant HII regions, dwarf and HII galaxies, to starburst galaxies, IRAS ultraluminous galaxies and interacting pairs, all the way up to violent star formation in active galactic nuclei and QSOs. Several critical reviews look at the implications of violent star formation from a variety of angles: ionization structure, interaction with the ISM, hydrodynamics, triggering mechanisms, chemical evolution, luminosity functions and the starburst model for AGNs.

On behalf of the organizing committee I would like to thank all the staff and colleagues at the IAC and the RGO who contributed to the organization of the meeting. We are particularly grateful to Monica Murphy (IAC), Judith de Araoz (IAC), Silvia Figueroa (RGO-La Palma) and Rachel Miles (RGO-La Palma) for their efficiency and their keen collaboration to warrant a very pleasant and successful conference. I also want to express my gratitude to Terence Mahoney for his help with the preparation of each of the papers in this volume.
