A wealth of multi-wavelength deep, wide
and time-resolved observations has provided in recent years
new information on the properties of AGN. It has been revealed
not only how the AGN phenomenon is
intimately connected with the formation of
but also how AGN represent a necessary and
influential phase in the evolution of galaxies.
|The purpose of this
workshop is to bring together observers and theorists in this
exciting research area to review, confront, and
discuss the recent progress in this field.
This will be of great interest in order to improve our knowledge
of AGN and galaxy
formation and evolution, as well as better
understand the potential of AGN for future discoveries.
workshop will take place at the Specola Vaticana in Castel
Gandolfo, Italy in October 2005.
It will have a 4 day format and a maximum attendance
of approximately 30-35 invited speakers.
The meeting will consist of invited review
talks, af about 45 min each.
Every day 2 one-hour (one
in the morning and one in the afternoon) sessions will be reserved
of the Workshop
We will have four sessions:
1) Properties of AGN
2) AGN and SMBH in the Early
3) The (joint) evolution of
AGN and Galaxies
4) Local AGN

We plan to publish the Acta
of the workshop on the Memorie of the SAIT.
To facilitate the discussion at the workshop
we suggest to make available a draft of your presentation
a few weeks in advance of the workshop. We
plan to collect all presentations on this workshop web site.
The final version of the presentations will
be collected after the workshop, hoping that
discussions and interactions
at the workshop will be as most fruitfull and will be reflected
in the final papers.
