Europe/Zurich timezone
We invite theorists interested in Dark Matter and related Early Universe Cosmology to take part in a one-week programme. Our aim is to bring together physicists with common scientific interests for discussions and collaborations. There will be no intense programme of talks, like at conferences or workshops. Rather, every day we will hold an informal presentation on a selected topic which will be led by one or more experts in the field, and will be meant as an occasion for an extended discussion. Young participants are especially welcome. Similar programmes have already been held at DESY in February 2008 (http://www.desy.de/~covil/entapp-vp08.html), at CERN in March 2007 (http://ph-dep-th.web.cern.ch/ph-dep-th/content2/workshops/DM07/) and January/February 2005 (http://cern.ch/ph-dep-th/content2/workshops/entapp/welcome.html) and at SISSA in October 2005 (http://www.sissa.it/he/mainpage/ap/geninfo.html) List of topics: Direct dark matter searches Dark matter at colliders Halo models and indirect detection Non standard Supersymmetric dark matter (gravitino, sneutrino, axino) Non supersymmetric Wimps List of discussion leaders: L. Strigari C. Frenk G. Gelmini M. Schubnell P. Salati A. Strong I. Moskalenko L. Baudis T. Schwetz-Mangold G. Belanger R. Trotta H. Baer
TH Theory Conference Room
There will be no registration fee. Some amount of funding will be available. Financial support is based on CERN regulations. This means we can offer a perdiem which amounts to around 140 CHF/day, but we cannot reimburse travel expenses. Some rooms will be blocked at the CERN Hostel. If you want to stay there, mention it when you register. PRACTICAL INFORMATION: When you arrive at CERN – during working hours, you have to go to the Reception (building 33), entrance A, announce yourself as a participant of the ENTAPp DarkMatter 09 workshop and you will get your access card; – If you have a room booked at the CERN Hostel, and you arrive out of the working hours, please go to the main entrance B, building 120 and ask the guard for your hostel key. Next day you'll have to go the Reception building to get your access card.
