Black Holes in General Relativity and String Theory

BHs, GR and Strings
24– 30 August, 2008
Veli Lošinj, Croatia
The topic of the workshop will cover astrophysical black holes (from supermassive to stellar), primordial and miniblack holes, both experimentally, phenomenologically and theoretically. Black holes are of utmost interest because they are likely to represent nowadays the most important clue to quantum gravity. Particular emphasis will be given to quantum aspects of black holes both from string theory and general relativity approach. The workshop programme will also contain a few introductory lectures on the most important topics concerning black holes.
