Dark matter is a pillar of modern cosmology and provides strong evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model. Its impact on cosmology is modelled in N-body simulations, its distribution is being mapped with weak lensing studies, its production is being searched for at the LHC and its detection is sought for directly in deep underground detectors or indirectly through observation of its annihilation products.
We hold bi-annual meetings for the UK's Dark Matter community to meet up, present
research, and discuss the latest progress in the field.
Our next one-day meeting is on 13 July 2018 and will be hosted by the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology at Durham University.
