Axion Wimp 2022

The nature and composition of Dark Matter and Dark Energy are two of the most pressing mysteries of modern physics. Research in these fields is presently gathering increasing momentum and attracting the efforts of scientists from many international institutions. The "17th Patras Workshop on Axions, WIMPs and WISPs” is the latest event in an annual series of conferences, started in 2005 at CERN. This workshop aims to continue the rich and successful series and will be a forum to review recent theoretical advances, laboratory experiments, novel ideas as well as astrophysical and cosmological results in the fields of axions, WIMPs and WISPs. Participation by young scientists is strongly encouraged.

The 17th Patras Workshop on Axions, WIMPs and WISPs will be hosted by the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany and is planned as an in-person meeting.

Registration is open on the Indico website!
