Light Dark World 2019 

August 12 - 13, 2019

Erwin Schrödinger Institute, Vienna, Austria

Light Dark World 2019 is the fourth meeting of the Light Dark World International Forum. It will be held on August 12 - 13, 2019 at Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) in Vienna, Austria. Light Dark World 2019 is a part of a bigger program, STRONG-DM.

Light Dark World 2019 will continue the successful past meetings (Light Dark World 2016Light Dark World 2017, Light Dark World 2018), and bring together global experts from experiment and theory to discuss recent advances in the field of light new particles beyond the Standard Model, as well as develop new opportunities to study new light hypothetical particles, including light gauge bosons, light dark matter, axions and axion-like particles, sterile neutrinos and more.
