One of the most exciting developments in theoretical physics in the last 20 years has been the realization that the scale of quantum gravity could be in the TeV region instead of the usually assumed 1019 GeV. Indeed, the strength of gravity can be affected by the size of potential extra-dimensions [1–4] or the quantum fluctuations of a large hidden sector of particles [5]. A dramatic signal of quantum gravity in the TeV region would be the production of small black holes in high energy collisions of particles at colliders. The possibility of creating small black holes at colliders has led to some wonderful theoretical works on the formation of black holes in the collisions of particles.
