Dark Matter Workshop

Monday April 3 there will be an interactive full-day workshop that covers Dark Matter. The format will be heavily interactive, with roughly equal time allocated to talks and to the discussion they prompt. Each speaker will be paired with a "discussion partner" who will lead a follow-up discussion. We aim to cover major aspects of the nature of dark matter as well as the detection of dark matter. Participants will include both astrophysicists and particle physicists.

Starting time: 9:00

Location: Andromeda lecture theatre, Lund Observatory (Sölvegatan 27; map).

Meeting hashtag: #KAW100
