This workshop will focus on the status and results of current direct detection experiments.  The preliminary agenda includes seven experimental talks (CDMS, CoGeNT and COUPP, CRESST, DAMA, DarkSide, DMTPC, and XENON100), a discussion of low-energy nuclear recoils in xenon, and a set of short talks and discussion of new theoretical ideas and models. There will also be time set aside for informal conversation.

There will also be a mini workshop on April 27, 2011 to discuss the implications of the recently published dark matter limits of the Xenon100 experiment.
