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.

The Black Holes Workshops gather researchers working on mathematical and physical problems of gravitation, both in its classical and quantum aspects, as well as on superstrings, cosmology and astrophysics, and stimulate the interaction between them.

The seventh edition of the Black Holes Workshop invites researchers on black holes in all their aspects to participate, and will be held at the University of Aveiro in 18-19 December 2014.

These meetings are informal, involving typically around 50 participants and there is no registration fee.

The workshop will consist of contributed talks by the participants. The durations of the talks will be 12+3 minutes.

Previous meetings:

- Porto (2008)

- Lisbon (2009)

- Minho (2010)

- Aveiro (2011)

- Lisbon (2012)

- Minho (2013)

For the first time in the Black Holes Workshops series, there will be conference proceedings, to be published as a special volume of the International Journal of Modern Physics D (referenced in ISI and with impact factor). All speakers will be invited to submit a contribution, which will be subjected to refereeing. More details will be provided during the workshop.
