The puzzle of dark matter conference takes place 29-31 October 2018 at DESY. The conference is meant to bring together theorists and experimentalists of all collaborations in the field of particle and astroparticle physics searching for dark matter. More than presenting the latest results of the searches, we hope to foster collaboration and identify areas for future cooperation and development to enhance future searches at both collider and non-collider based experiments.
Our keynote speakers are some of the leading experts in various areas of the field:
- Caterina Doglioni (ATLAS): collider searches
- Hans Kraus (LUX): direct searches
- Laura Covi: theory
- Greg Landsberg (CMS): collider searches
- Javier Rico (MAGIC/CTA): indirect searches
- Matthias Schott (ALPS)
A Young Scientist Forum will give PhD students and young postdocs the opportunity to present their work in short lightning round talks. If you are a PhD student, or supervisor, please consider submitting an abstract through the webpage.
On the closing day of the conference, a panel discussion will be held to dig deeper into the interplays and missing aspects in the searches discussed on the previous days.
NOTE: DESY can provide on-site childcare (ages 1+) and other accommodations for parents or primary caregivers. Please contact the organisers should you require any support to facilitate your attendance to the conference.
