LCDM, Modified Gravity or new Dark Matter models?

de à (Europe/Paris)
à Tour Zamansky ( Rooms 2307 and 2302 )
Campus Jussieu 4 Place Jussieu 75005 Paris

​This will be an informal meeting on galaxy properties and how they relate to Dark Matter. The focus of the workshop will be to learn more about the mass discrepancy-acceleration relation (MDAR) of galaxies, and whether this can be explained by vanilla Lambda-CDM, some new theory of Modified Gravity or perhaps new models of Dark Matter. 

It will consist of a number of lectures and seminars from experts across these related topics, aimed at an audience of people working in the field of Dark Matter, but not necessarily on these aspects. The lectures will be pedagogical, aiming to provide an introduction to the MDAR and different possible explanations. The seminars will cover more recent developments. Ample time will be set aside for discussions. Confirmed speakers include: Alejandro Benítez-Llambay, Celine Boehm, Arianna Di Cintio, Federico Lelli and Costas Skordis.

This is the fifth in a series of mini-workshops held in the context of the activities of the ERC Starting Grant project: 'NewDark: New Directions in Dark Matter Phenomenology at the TeV Scale'. Support from the ERC is acknowledged. Previous mini-workshops covered Dark Matter searches at colliders, numerical simulationsaxion theory and searches and Dark Matter and Stars.

Participation is by invitation only.
