Abstract
Abstract

Since the beginning of the new millennium, more than 100 z ~ 6 quasars have been discovered through several surveys and followed-up with multi-wavelength observations. These data provided a large amounts of information on the growth of supermassive black holes at the early epochs, the properties of quasar host galaxies and the joint formation and evolution of these massive systems. We review the properties of the highest z quasars known so far, especially focussing on some of the most recent results obtained in (sub-)millimetre bands. We discuss key observational challenges and open issues in theoretical models and highlight possible new strategies to improve our understanding of the galaxy black hole formation and evolution in the early Universe.
