The aim of NERQUAM is to promote interaction and collaboration among the New England community of scientists working on various aspects of Active Galaxies, Quasars, and Jets. The format will be similar to previous years, with news items, invited and contributed talks, and posters. There will be ample time for discussion during coffee and lunch breaks as well as a reception at the end.
