Title: Searching for AGNs in the infrared data

Abstract: In the era of big data driven astronomy creating trustable catalogs of astronomical objects plays crucial role in observational cosmology. In particular, Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) catalogs still cause many difficulties for the observers. In my presentation I will briefly discuss the general properties of different types of AGNs and focus on their identification in the infrared passbands due to the high AGN selection efficiency in this part of the spectrum.
