International Conference on
Shining from the heart of darkness: black hole accretion and jets

Kathmandu, Nepal, October 16 - 21, 2016

Sixth in a series of astrophysical conferences held in Kathmandu (Nepal), the meeting will mainly focus on accretion physics and jet launching and evolution mechanisms in galactic and extragalactic sources. We plan to address major observational and theoretical results on these topics for a wide range of cosmic sources. Emphasis will also be given to multiwavelength studies of cosmic sources and to multi-messenger physics, gravitational waves in particular.
