From astrophysics to high-energy physics, from information theory to quantum gravity, black holes have acquired an ever increasing role in fundamental physics, and are now part of the terminology of many important branches of observational, theoretical and mathematical physics. This workshop aims at bringing together experts about black holes in all their aspects.

The fourth edition of the Black Holes Workshop will be held at the University of Aveiro in 19-20 December 2011.


General Information

This meeting is the fourth in a series that started in Porto (2008) and continued in Lisbon (2009) and Minho (2010).

The aim of these meetings is to gather Portuguese researchers and researchers working in Portugal on mathematical and physical problems of gravitation, both in its classical and quantum aspects, as well as on superstrings, cosmology and astrophysics, and to stimulate the interaction between them.

The workshop will consist of contributed talks by the participants. The durations of the talks should be roughly 30 minutes.



Please fill in the form to register for the workshop. If you wish to give a talk, you can either enter its title and abstract in the given field or upload a .pdf file.
