DESCRIPTION

One of the most significant unsolved problems in cosmology and particle physics is the nature of the dark matter. Recent horizons on the nature of dark matter have come from indirect indications for the possible annihilation or decay products of the dark matter, and from the behavior of dark matter in small cosmological structure. This workshop aims to bring together physicists and astronomers with new and upcoming results on direct, indirect and astrophysical methods for uncovering the nature of dark matter.
