ESO Workshop, ESO Headquarters, Garching, Germany, 27 June – 1 July, 2016

Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are being discovered in ever-larger numbers over the whole electromagnetic spectrum (radio, infrared, optical/UV, X-ray and γ-ray), providing different windows on AGN physics. The main goal of the Workshop is to paint the AGN “big picture”, which comes out of the multi-wavelength surveys, and understand the intrinsic and fundamental properties of AGN and the physics behind them. Abstract submission deadline is 26 March 2016.

This comprehensive view of AGN will be achieved within a truly multi-wavelength approach. Contributors from all wave-bands are encouraged and the Workshop will consist of reviews and contributed talks distributed over six sessions: radio, infrared, optical, X-ray, γ-ray, and variability. Full details on the workshop website or by enquiry to agn2016. The registration deadline is 6 June 2016.
