"Charleston conference highlights"

A. Różańska (CAMK)

It has been six years since the AGN winds in the Caribbean conference that was dedicated to AGN outflows. Many interesting results based on Chandra, XMM, Suzaku, HST, FUSE and ground-based observatories, as well as theoretical insight, were obtained over this period of time. The AGN winds in Charleston is a relatively small workshop dedicated to the physical characteristics of AGN accretion disk winds - the structure, ionization state, kinematics, energetics, driving mechanism and their interaction with their environments. The workshop is scheduled to take place from Saturday, October 15 through Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. The conference organizers will host a welcome reception on Friday evening, October 14. The workshop will have contributed talks + posters but no invited talks. We have allowed for long coffee breaks, a long lunch interspersed between scheduled events all day long, with one afternoon off for seeing the sights in historic Charleston. Graduate students are encouraged to attend this meeting.
