Dear friends of IDM,

due to the spread of the COVID-19 we decided to postpone the IDM conference to 2021.

IDM 2021 will take place at the same venue from July 19 - 23, 2021. 
Please find the indico page for 2021

To bridge the long waiting time until 2021 we offer an online-only format, free for everybody to attend from July 20 -22, 2020.

The 13th conference on the identification of dark matter - IDM2020/21 - is organized by the Institute of high energy physics (HEPHY), Vienna. 

The aim of IDM is to draw a complete picture on the current knowledge of dark matter from cosmological scale down to particle physics, from accelerator searches to recent results in indirect and direct detection and to give a glance on future prospects and technological advancements on the endeavor to identify dark matter.

The following topics are the focus of the conference:

  • Direct and indirect detection of dark matter
  • Axions and ALPs
  • Sterile neutrinos
  • Searches for dark matter at accelerators
  • Dark matter simulations
  • Cosmological evidence for dark matter
  • Underground laboratories
  • Background in dark matter searches
