The Birmingham-Nottingham extragalactic workshop series consists of informal 2-day events, involving typically ~50 participants, with the aim of bringing together researchers in related strands of research in a topical and well-focused area of extragalactic astronomy.

The format will be similar to previous workshops in the series, with a mixture of 15 and 30 minute talks, leaving plenty of time for discussion.

This year's topic is Cosmic Mergers from Massive Black Holes to Massive Clusters. We will review recent progress in our understanding of mergers in the extragalactic sky across a wide range of scales, and discuss scientific topics, physical processes, analysis techniques, and challenges of upcoming datasets, of common interest.
