           The 13th Italian meeting on

               Active Galactic Nuclei 

          9-12 October, 2018 in Milano



The conference poster is available here

The conference will last 3 and 1/2 days and it will be held in the Auditorium of Acquario Civico of Milano, Viale Gadio 2. The location is near the Parco Sempione area, between the Civic Arena and the Castello Sforzesco, in the center of Milano.


Scientific Rationale

The meeting will be an opportunity to review the current status of research in the AGN field and to openly discuss our knowledge of the physics, demography and evolution of AGN from the local Universe up to the epoch of formation of the first Super Massive Black-Holes. A particular attention will be given to the role of AGN in galaxy evolution.

The aim of this meeting is to discuss, with a "curiosity-driven" perspective, recent results on the investigation on nuclear engines and their host galaxies, with a special eye to current and future projects with a large involvement of the Italian astronomical community.

The meeting will cover the following topics:

        ❖ First SMBH, reionization, AGN cosmology
        ❖ AGN evolution and AGN-galaxy coevolution
        ❖ Feedback mechanisms
        ❖ Central engine, accretion disk, torus and jets
        ❖ Multi-messenger astronomy
        ❖ Gravitational waves

We look forward to seeing you in Milano!
