NERQUAM

New England Regional Quasar and AGN Meeting

This one-day meeting is held annually in May, rotating between the five sponsoring institutions with the aim of promoting interaction and collaboration between those working on various aspects of Active Galaxies and Quasars in and around the Boston area. It is always a relaxed and highly enjoyable meeting where students and established scientists can mingle and converse, and presenters can try out new and speculative ideas. Everyone from the Boston and New England area is welcome.
