Light Dark World 2022 is the seventh meeting of the Light Dark World International Forum. It will be held virtually on December 12-14, 2022, via Zoom and is hosted by the Particle Theory Group (PTG), at Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST).

Light Dark World 2022 will bring together global experts from experiment and theory to discuss recent advances and develop new opportunities to study new light particles beyond the Standard Model, including light gauge boson, light scalar, light dark matter, axion, light sterile neutrinos, and dark energy fields.
