Gamma rays to shed light on dark matter


The program will be available soon.


A preliminary list of topics that will be covered, together with speakers, is:


  • LCDM cosmological model (by J. Zavala, U. of Iceland)
  • Observational evidence for dark matter (speaker TBA)
  • Standard Model of particle physics and beyond (speaker TBA)
  • Cosmological origin of DM candidates (speaker TBA)
  • Gamma-ray astrophysics (M. Doro, U. Padova)
  • WIMP searches (G. Belanger, LAPTh)
  • N-body cosmological simulations (G. Yepes, UAM)
  • Hydrodynamical cosmological simulations (A. Pillepich, MPIA)
  • DM modelling of astrophysical targets (C. Combet, IN2P3)
  • EBL attenuation (A. Domínguez, UCM)
  • WIMP gamma-ray searches (F. Calore, LAPTh)
  • ALPs detection in gamma rays (M. Meyer, Erlangen)
  • Gamma-ray detection techniques (M. Doro, U. Padova)
  • Statistics of gamma-ray data DM analysis (speaker TBA)
  • CR-induced astrophysical fore/backgrounds (D. Gaggero, IFT UAM-CSIC)
  • Gamma-ray DM search status and future (speaker TBA)


Hands-on sessions:
