Cozumel, Mexico

The Guillermo Haro  2003 


The huge amount of data obtained by surveys in all wavebands, from radio to X-rays, has allowed a major progress in the understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei and of their cosmic evolution.

This conference is intended to give a broad overview of the recent results obtained by AGN surveys over the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Topics which will be discussed during the conference are: AGN evolution, contribution to the cosmic background, AGN luminosity functions in different wavebands, multiwavelength properties of AGN, unified model and unconventional AGN, connection with the host galaxies, co-evolution of AGN and galaxies, implications for the local density of supermassive black holes. Future AGN surveys planned with forthcoming new observational facilities will also be discussed.
