This mini-workshop is aimed at gathering a few experts from different fields (cosmology, Galactic dynamics, [astro]particle physics) to discuss current progress, issues, and prospects in the understanding of dark matter at the Galactic scale. The number of (invited) participants will be limited to ~20. This is the second edition of this workshop series (previous edition at this link).
The meeting will take place in the campus of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Montpellier, in the Polytech building (build. 31), rooms 13 and 14, ground floor. We will have lunches at the University restaurant on the campus ("restaurant des personnels" on the map).
The main entrance of the Faculty is located Place Eugène Bataillon, which you can reach by tram from the city center (tram line 1, the blue one, stop "Universités des Sciences et des Lettres") . The square is easily found thanks to the giant red "donut" lying in middle of the roundabout. From downtown (where the railway station, or Place de la Comédie, are located), take this tram line toward "Mosson". To go back downtown, take the same line toward "Odysseum".
NB: you will have to purchase your tickets before boarding the tram (ticket machines at each stop).
This meeting is funded by the CNRS-IN2P3 Theory Project "Galactic Dark Matter" (PI J. Lavalle) and organized by members of the Theory group of the LUPM.
Participants will include:
James Binney (U. Oxford), Mathieu Boudaud (LPTHE), Johann Cohen-Tanugi (LUPM), Sacha Davidson (IPNL), Benoit Famaey (Obs. Strasbourg), Robert J.J. Grand (ITS Heidelberg), Cyril Hugonie (LUPM), Karsten Jedamzik (LUPM), Thomas Lacroix (LUPM), Julien Lavalle (LUPM), Gary Mamon (IAP), Giacomo Monari (Nordita Stockholm), Gilbert Moultaka (L2C), Emmanuel Nezri (LAM), Arturo Nunez (LAM), Christophe Pichon (IAP), Pierre Salati (LAPTh), Till Sawala (U. Helsinki), Matthieu Schaller (ICC Durham), Martin Stref (LUPM), Guillaume Thomas (Obs. Strasbourg), Hervé Wozniak (LUPM), and several MSc students.
