nLab Croatian Black Hole School

The Croatian Black Hole School is a school inspired by the traditional Modave school in Belgiumč it took place on 21–25 June 2010 at Trpanj, on the peninsula Pelješac in southern Croatia. The lectures and housing for most people were organized at Pansion Loviška whose personel was very kind and helpful. The organizer was Jarah Evslin and the main topic is the physics of black holes, both theoretical and observational.
