Scientific Program

One of the main goals of this Scientific Program will be to foster new connections between phenomenologists, simulators, experimentalists, and observers. The plan is to have experts from these varied backgrounds to stimulate new directions that could yield concrete tests of dark sector physics. We plan to leave plenty of room in the schedule for open discussion (with no more than 2 hrs/day of talks), to encourage interactions and collaborations. The primary scientific goals for the workshop are to:

  • classify viable dark sector models, emphasizing the possible phenomenological conse-quences;

  • propose new model targets for simulations of DM structure, which could lead to the identification of new observables;

  • reevaluate current constraints on dark sectors;

  • find new connections between dark sectors and data being taken in terrestrial and astrophysical experiments;

  • uncover new proposals for experiments that could probe non-trivial dark sectors.
