Workshop Rationale

It is our pleasure to announce that we are organizing a workshop entitled "East-Asia AGN Workshop 2017" held on 4th-6th December 2017 in Kagoshima, Japan. This is the fifth meeting of a series of workshops for East Asian collaborations in the AGN/SMBH field. The East-Asia AGN Workshop aims at fostering close collaborations among AGN/SMBH researchers in East Asian countries. Research collaborations in East Asia are getting more important recently, given various opportunities provided by East Asian Observatory (JCMT, Subaru, ...) and also on-going and future large international projects such as ALMA, TMT, and GMT. We believe that this workshop will provide various opportunity to foster new collaborations for tackling exciting mysteries in the AGN/SMBH field.
