The aim of the meeting is to gather Portuguese researchers and researchers working in Portugal in gravitational physics, both in its classical and quantum aspects as well as in superstrings, cosmology and astrophysics, to stimulate the interaction between them. This year's meeting will have as theme Black Hole Physics.
