rom astrophysics to high-energy physics, information theory to quantum gravity, black holes have acquired an ever-increasing role in fundamental physics. They are now part of the terminology of many important observational, theoretical and mathematical physics branches.

The Black Holes Workshops gather researchers working on physical and mathematical problems of black holes, both in their 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 sixteenth edition of the Black Holes Workshop celebrates landmark contributions in the history of black holes, namely the 60 years of the Kerr metric and the 50 years of the laws of black hole mechanics by Bardeen, Carter and Hawking.

The workshop will take place at FEUP. Researchers on black holes in all their aspects are invited to participate.

Registration for the event will start on September 19th and end on December 3rd. The deadline to submit abstracts is November 15th. A limited number of accepted contributions will be selected, taking into account their scientific merit. Submissions of abstracts after the deadline will not be allowed. Please follow the registration instructions.
