This is the first announcement for the Black Holes Workshop XII, which will take place in Guimaraes, Portugal, in December 19-20, 2019.
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 physical and mathematical problems of black holes, both in its classical and quantum aspects, as well as their connections to general relativity and gravitation, string theory, cosmology, and astrophysics, and stimulate the interaction between all these fields.
The 2019 edition celebrates two decisive dates in the history of general relativity: First, the one hundred years of the deflection of light observations by Eddington, Dyson and collaborators; second, the eighty years of the paper by Oppenheimer and Snyder showing, for the first time, the formation of black holes through gravitational collapse.
The Black Holes Workshops are informal meetings. They consist of contributed talks by the participants. There is no registration fee.
There will be a social dinner on Thursday, December 19, evening.
We kindly invite you to register and submit your contribution at the
meeting’s webpage http://w3.math.uminho.pt/bhw19.
Please forward this message to all interested colleagues.
We hope to see you in Guimaraes!
On behalf of the organizing committee,
