Description

The workshop centers on dark matter searches at the LHC, but will also discuss other types of "invisible" particles, in particular long-lived particles, as well as non-LHC experiments (low-energy colliders, fixed-target experiments, complementary dark matter searches).

The workshop is organised and funded by the "New Physics at the LHC" network of the German Research Foundation DFG.

Speakers include:

  • Martin Bauer (University of Heidelberg)
  • Moritz Breitbach (University of Mainz)
  • Rouven Essig (Stony Brook University)
