The Dark Matter Paradigm: Current Status and Challenges
16-18 October 2013

REGISTRATION HAS REACHED FULL CAPACITY AND IS NOW CLOSED.

Program Organizers: Kfir Blum, Daniel Grin, Samuel Lee, Mariangela Lisanti, Tracy Slatyer

The nature of dark matter remains one of the key outstanding problems in fundamental physics. Fortunately, the field of dark-matter research is presently enjoying an era of abundant data. Particle-physics constraints on dark-matter models are constantly improving with the accumulation and refinement of data at the Large Hadron Collider. Direct and indirect searches for weakly interacting massive particles have also produced several intriguing hints of potential signals. Additionally, new observations and analyses on galactic and cosmological scales have revealed possible discrepancies with the predictions of the standard collisionless, cold dark-matter paradigm. Consistent interpretation of this wealth of information will require the mutual efforts of researchers working on all aspects of dark-matter detection and theory. The aim of this three-day workshop, sponsored jointly by the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science and the Institute for Advanced Study, is to promote the exchange of ideas and new results between particle-physics experimentalists, phenomenologists and model builders, cosmologists, astronomers, dynamicists, and high-energy astrophysicists.

A poster session will also be held during the meeting; if you are interested in presenting a poster, please send a title and abstract to samuelkl@princeton.edufor consideration.
