This mini-workshop is aimed at gathering a few experts from different fields (mostly theoretical cosmology, galactic dynamics, [astro]particle physics) to discuss current progress, issues, and prospects in the understanding of dark matter (DM). The focus is mostly on how different DM scenarios imprint galactic and subgalactic scales, and how these can in turn be used to discriminate among several classes of DM candidates. This is directly linked to the small-scale tensions the LCDM paradigm is currently facing, which could be related either to baryonic physics, specific dark matter properties, or both.

Participation is on invitation, and the philosophy may be summarized as: interactive, friendly, unveil the dust under the carpet(s), share knowledge or ideas,  trigger collaborative works. This is the sixth edition of this workshop series (previous editions: 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020).

The 2021 meeting will take place at the Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh). This edition will focus on astroparticle physics aspects, a strong local tradition, but will also review other topics related to dark matter as a more general problem, as traditionally done at NFTD workshops.

This meeting is partly supported by Université Savoie-Mont Blanc, by the CNRS-INSU National Programs PNHE and PNCG, and by the ANR under contract ANR-18-CE31-0006 (GaDaMa project).

Scientific organizers: Benoit Famaey, Julien Lavalle, Pierre Salati.

Local organizers: Francesca Calore, Pierre Salati, Martin Stref.
