One of the active research areas in theoretical high energy physics in understanding physics of black holes its thermodynamics, microstates comprising it and physical processes involving the hole. In this workshop we intend to discuss the latest developments in the field. The workshop is organized within the ICTP Network project "Novel approaches to mesoscopic phenomena" NET68 with partial support of Regional Training Network in Theoretical Physics, sponsored by VolkswagenStiftung.
