Croatian Black Hole School
Trpanj, Pelješac, Croatia
June 21-25, 2010
The Croatian Black Hole School was a summer school in the style of the Modave school, in which the lessons were given by non-senior people. There were lessons on 6 themes related to black holes, and not too closely related to the research of the lecturers. They were aimed at a general theoretical physics audience, not at people who work on black holes. Most of the lecture series were between 3 and 5 hours long. Speakers were encouraged to provide lecture notes in advance. These lecture notes were made into a book, copies of which were given to all of the participants at the beginning of the school.
There were be lessons from 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM and from 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM every day except for the 21st, when there was only be an afternoon session. Informal lectures may be given at midnight or later, only these may concern the speaker's research. The conference room is sufficiently isolated (in a different building) that this may not disturb those wishing to sleep.
A social dinner is included in the registration fee (of 100 euros for students and 150 for postdocs) and is available to accompanying persons for 20 euros. This included 2 entire roasted piglets. There was a second soial dinner with two entire roast lambs.
