Nuclear Region, Host Galaxy and Environment of Active Galaxies
The central engine: variability, BH mass and accretion.
Emission regions and circumnuclear starbursts.
Influence of the host galaxy and of the environment.

This symposium will be devoted to the study of
nuclear activity in galaxies both from theoretical and observational
points of view. It will emphasize the search for physical drivers of
AGN phenomenology comparing observational properties with theoretical
predictions. It will also address the aspect of AGN evolution both at
low and intermediate redshifts.
The meeting will cover topics ranging from the
nearest environment of the black hole, to the environment of the host
galaxies of AGN. This includes the accretion disk, the emission and
absorption regions, the presence of a circumnuclear starburst, the host
galaxy and its interaction with other galaxies. Special attention will
be devoted to the feedback processes produced by the black hole into
the near and large scale environment, as well as the feedback processes
from the environment on the central engine.
The scheme planned includes review talks (45
min), invited (35 min) and contributed (20 min) oral presentations and
to main AGN2007 meeting
