Discussion meeting of the LHC Dark Matter Working Group, focused on:

1) Conclusion of the work on scalar and pseudoscalar models (2HDM) and on the t-channel models

2) Overview and critical comparison of ATLAS and CMS DM results with 2015+2016 data

3) New ideas for future directions, including but not limited to:

  • connections between existing models and dark sector models
  • HL-LHC and HE-LHC prospects for dark matter searches
  • upcoming improvements to precision calculations and tools for DM searches
  • further refinement to current benchmark models towards new signatures 
  • presentation of joint ATLAS and CMS results (summary plots)
