"Astroparticle Physics: a joint TeVPA/IDM conference" brings together two major international conference series in Astroparticle Physics: TeV Particle Astrophysics and Identification of Dark Matter.

This 6-day conference aims to provide the stage for the most recent advances in the booming field of Astroparticle Physics, bringing to Amsterdam - a city that has recently invested a lot into this research area through initiatives like GRAPPA and the D-ITP - leading members of the scientific communities that are contributing to its success. 
The scientific programme will include topics such as: 

  • Cosmic Rays
  • Dark Matter in Cosmology
  • Direct Dark Matter Searches
  • Indirect Dark Matter Searches
  • High Energy Particle Physics
  • Neutrinos
  • High Energy Astrophysics


The conference will be held at the Tuschinski Theatre, an extraordinary landmark in the heart of Amsterdam, which was built in 1921 in a spectacular mix of Amsterdam School, Jugendstil, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. The main auditorium, which hosts many Dutch film premieres, is considered one of the most beautiful cinemas in the world.

For further information on the venue, including address and directions, please visit the Venue and Location page via the main menu.

Conference Dinner
A special social event is planned at Het Scheepvaartmuseum. It will include a guided visit to the exhibition halls and a sumptuous dinner under the recently installed Atrium. 

Participants are welcome to bring guests to the conference dinner.  Guest Conference Dinner Passes can be purchased along with the Conference Pass when registering via the online registration form. 

Further information can be found on the Social Programme page, via the main menu.
