The Hawking Radiation Conference in Stockholm, Sweden, sponsored by UNC Global, was convened by UNC-Chapel Hill professor Laura Mersini-Houghton, bringing together scientists from around the world to discuss "whether singularities in black holes exist and whether Hawking radiation has bearing on their existence." In association with the conference, Stephen Hawking presented a public lecture entitled "Quantum Black Holes." Carol Folt, Chancellor of UNC-Chapel Hill, attended and provided opening remarks for Hawking's talk.
