XII Black Hole Workshop

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 issues.

The 2019 edition celebrates two decisive dates in the history of general relativity: Firstly, the one hundred years of the deflection of light observations and, secondly, the eighty years of the Oppenheimer-Snyder model of black holes formation through gravitational collapse.
