The special properties of Black Holes have intrigued researchers for decades. They do signal their existence in nature in several ways including by emitting gravitational waves while merging. Their way of handling information is more elusive. In this workshop several aspects of this information handling will be discussed, with some emphasis on possible relations it has to the theory of chaos, thermalization and quantum information.
