The workshop ALPS-DM brings together distinguished scientists, researchers, and experts in particle physics to engage in rigorous discussions and collaborative efforts, aiming to shed light on the elusive nature of dark matter. The symposium covers diverse topics, including theoretical frameworks, experimental methodologies, and astrophysical observations of dark matter. 

ALPS-DM aims at having a workshop character. Previous instances of the ALPS series were conferences. The venue is the Obergurgl University Centre, in the ski-resort town of Obergurgl, located in the upper Oetztal Valley in Tyrol, Austria. Attendance is by invitation.
