Description

Dark Matter at the Large Hadron Collider (DM@LHC) is a workshop to further develop simplified models and effective field theory approaches to DM, taking stock of the final results of the 8 TeV LHC run, and to prepare for the next phase of data-taking at higher energies.

Particular emphasis will be given to exploring new signals of DM including models that may be challenging for direct or indirect detection, and in more sophisticated techniques to improve the existing searches.

DM@LHC is a discussion-oriented workshop featuring short talks by theorists and experimentalists actively working on LHC signals of Dark Matter.
