Dark Matter: Its Origin, Nature and Prospects for Detection



Abstract
A wide variety of cosmological and astrophysical observations, on a wide range of length scales, have established overwhelming evidence that dark matter is the building block of structures in the Universe, however they do not discriminate among the many viable dark matter candidates. The conference is dedicated to all aspects of dark matter physics, with sessions on: dark matter and structure formation; dark matter candidates and LHC and and other experimental searches for the underlying particle physics models; direct and indirect detection of dark matter particles and relative backgrounds.
