This is the second circular to inform you about the Conference
"ACCRETION AND EJECTION IN AGN: A GLOBAL VIEW"
to be held in Como - Centro Volta on June 22-26, 2009
The conference is focused on the relation between accretion
and ejection in radio-quiet and radio loud AGN and aims at discussing
major observational and theoretical aspects of fuelling, accretion
disks, outflows and relativistic jets in AGN, with emphasis on their

SUBJECT : ACCRETION AND EJECTION IN AGN: A GLOBAL VIEW
The Brera Astronomical Observatory (INAF) together with the
Department of Physics and Mathematics of Insubria University
are organizing a workshop on the theme
ACCRETION AND EJECTION IN AGN: A GLOBAL VIEW
to be held in Como - Centro Volta on June 22-26 2009
We plan to cover major observational and theoretical aspects of
fuelling, accretion disks, outflows and relativistic jets in AGN,
with emphasis on their interconnection and relation to environment.
A brief description of the meeting scopes is attached.
These topics are essentially multiwavelength in nature but rely
especially on the high-energy side of the electromagnetic spectrum
(X-rays, GeV and TeV gamma-rays). In particular, we expect
presentations with exciting news from the successful operation of
the AGILE and FERMI Gamma-Ray Telescopes and the second generation of
Cherenkov telescope arrays.
The Scientific Organizing Committee includes
We envisage 8 half day sessions, with 2 invited and 8
solicited/contributed talks each, plus poster presentations.
A brief outline of the meeting with proposed topics is attached.
We are planning on about 100 participants.
This is the first mailing to be widely distributed. We apologize
in advance if you will receive this notice more than once.
The NEXT MAILING will be distributed in JANUARY, ONLY to those that
will PREREGISTER on the meeting web-site or contact the LOC at the
web-mail address: agncomo09 LOC
