The 7th Dark Matter @ LHC 2020 workshop will take place from June 2nd to June 5th 2020.
Due to the current covid-19 related travel restrictions, there will be no in-person meeting in Hamburg, as originally planned.
However, the conference will go ahead as an online event with a modified timetable (afternoons only, same dates). In addition to the main conference room, we plan to provide a number of smaller "breakout" rooms for informal discussions with the sessions speakers. We will also set up a virtual coffee break to facilitate discussions on specific topics.
Further connection details will follow in the next weeks.
The goal of the conference is to bring together the experimental and theory communities to discuss the latest results from dark matter searches at the LHC and plans for the future. In particular, there will be a dedicated session on strategies for dark matter searches during the upcoming LHC Run 3. Further topics include the fast-growing area of dark sectors and LLPs, flavour and dark matter, and machine learning tools for dark matter searches. We will also have speakers from non-LHC dark matter experiments to discuss common topics, such as the comparability of results from different experiments in common theoretical frameworks and ideas for cross-experimental collaborations.
The conference will feature invited and contributed talks as well as a poster session. Furthermore, we foresee a number of shorter lightning talks on specific topics. These are meant to highlight individual and/or unusual ideas and can also help increase the visibility of younger scientists.
