    This workshop will have the main purpose of reviewing the state-of-the-art of observations and
    simulations about the most dense, massive and compact galaxies across the Universe: from the
    high-z dense, star-forming galaxies to the local ultra-compact massive galaxies, an entire feast of
    cosmic nuggets. These objects pose a great challenge for the current paradigm on galaxy
    formation and evolution, and can be of precious help in understanding the mass assembly of
    large, massive local early-type galaxies, which account for more than half of the total stellar mass
    of the whole Universe and are responsible for its chemical enrichment. Therefore, this workshop
    aims at tracing the time evolution of these peculiar and rare objects in order to better understand
    their role in galaxy evolution.
