Rapid and exciting progress has been made in the last decade in our understanding of the physics and evolution of active galactic nuclei (AGNs), and the new concept of coevolution of supermassive black holes and galaxies has emerged.
The Beijing International Summer School on "The Physics and Evolution of AGNs"
will take place on September 3-9, 2011 and will bring together PhD students and young astronomers to the frontiers of this exciting field of research, covering the topics of formation and evolution of supermassive black holes, accretion process, AGN physics and galaxy formation and evolution.
The lectures will be given by Mike Crenshaw, Cedric Lacey, Alessandro Marconi and Hagai Netzer, who will provide an extensive overview of the field starting from the physical basis of AGN and supermassive black holes and getting to the more recent and hotly debated topics of research.
The "target participants" of the School are PhD students and young researchers with some background in astronomy and astrophysics who intend to pursue a research career in extragalactic astronomy. There is no limit on the number of participants, but the school will provide local support for only 20 international PhD students. The School is sponsored by National Science Foundation of China, and hosted by The Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing.
