Colloquium: Black hole thermodynamics – then and now

Abstract: Black hole thermodynamics was developed about 40 years ago in the wake of deepening the understanding of the black hole phenomenon. It has remained lively by ramifying into a few subjects which are active fields of research today. I will describe, from a personal point of view, how the subject started and show how it connects to some contemporary issues in theoretical physics.

Fall 2013 PhD school, “Supersymmetry or not, what is the evidence?”
Dear all

this year we organize a particle/astro PhD school , sponsored by Dark/
Discovery/NBI , on supersymmetry

Date: October 28-November 1st

Location: Rockefeller building, Copenhagen

The two teachers will be Pascal Pralavorio (particle physicist) and
Dan Hooper (astrophysicist). They have taught similar subjects at SLAC
summer institute and other international schools in the recent past.

This PhD school promises to be quite interesting.

Registration is now open, for any questions please contact me,

Hope to see many of you there,
