Topics

* SMBH demography and growth

* The light-up and early evolution of the first SMBH

* SMBH accretion physics and nuclear environment physics

* SMBH ecology - interactions with their galactic and larger
environment

* X-raying AGN feedback

* Resolving the X-ray background

*Cosmic evolution of hard X-ray sources in starburst
and normal galaxies

* X-ray clusters as cosmological probes

* Physics of groups and clusters

* Future prospects for X-ray survey missions/instruments

 

Rationale

The meeting will be focused on the role of past, present and future X-ray surveys to understand the energetic processes in the Universe.
The science drivers revolves around the
inter relation between black hole growth and the evolving large scale structure as traced by X-ray surveys complemented by multi-wavelength follow-up programs.
