Dark Matter 2021: From the Smallest to the Largest Scales

13-16 September 2021, virtual format

Dark Matter 2021 is a meeting devoted to discussing the latest developments in the field of dark matter from the perspectives of both theory and experiment. Originally planned for Summer 2020, the conference was postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, and it has been finally decided to return this year with a lighter, virtual format. The conference will take place remotely over 4 days, running between 16:00 and 19:00 (CEST) each afternoon. 

There will be only a small number of invited talks and confirmed speakers include Rebecca Leane (SLAC), Gordan Krnjaic (Fermilab), Teresa Marrodan-Undagoitia (MPIK Heidelberg) & Katelin Schutz (MIT). The remaining time will be dedicated to contributed talks. Abstract submission is now open until 31 July at https://indico.ifca.es/event/1199/abstracts/, and contributions from researchers at all career stages will be wellcome. 

Registration is already open (for free) at this link: https://indico.ifca.es/event/1199/registrations/163/.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact dm_santander@ifca.unican.es for more information.
