Abstract: A $ p$-local finite group consists of a finite $ p$-group $ S$, together with a pair of categories which encode ``conjugacy'' relations among subgroups of $ S$, and which are modelled on the fusion in a Sylow $ p$-subgroup of a finite group. It contains enough information to define a classifying space which has many of the same properties as $ p$-completed classifying spaces of finite groups. In this paper, we study and classify extensions of $ p$-local finite groups, and also compute the fundamental group of the classifying space of a $ p$-local finite group.
