Description
The 2016 Mitchell Workshop on Collider and Dark Matter and Neutrino Physics will be held from May 23 – May 26, 2016, at the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University. The workshop will focus on recent results from collider experiments and progress in the field of dark matter and neutrino physics. The second and third days of the workshop will concentrate on the work being done on collider experiments. There will also be discussion of the implications of recent results, and related topics in particle phenomenology. The final two days of the workshop will focus on a discussion of dark matter, with talks highlighting recent results from various direct and indirect experimental searches and also related topics in astrophysics and cosmology.
