Splinter Meeting AGN

Active Galactic Nuclei

Time: Wednesday September 20, 14:00-16:30 and 17:00-19:00

Room: HS4

Organizers: Wolfram Kollatschny (Göttingen), Martin Haas (Bochum), Helmut Meusinger (TLS Tautenburg), Michael Ramolla (Bochum), Matthias Zetzl (Göttingen)

Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are understood as supermassive black holes (SMBH) that accrete large amounts of matter to sustain their immense variable luminosity seen at all frequency ranges. This splinter meeting will address open questions regarding the structure and evolution of AGN as well as their interaction with the environment.
