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
