The challenge to understand dark matter is central to particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics. Both Weakly Interacting Massive Particles and Axions represent well motivated candidates and are being pursued by a multitude of experiments. Experimental efforts include direct detection, indirect detection of annihilation products by satellite and ground based experiments, and possible production at LHC.
The Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy will host a small workshop to discuss various aspects of dark matter searches at LHC, Direct Detection and Indirect Detection experiments, along with expectations from theory and associated phenomenology. There will be special emphasis on current results and future expectations both for experiment and theory.
