General Information

The Virtual Workshop is organized by Pierluca Carenza (Stockholm University, OKC), Oindrila Ghosh (II. Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Hamburg, DESY) and Giuseppe Lucente (Univ. degli Studi di Bari "Aldo Moro").

The past decades have witnessed overwhelming success in narrowing down on dark matter, as we enter the era of light particle search. Axions, originally postulated to solve the strong CP problem, and axion-like particles constitute one of the most particle dark matter candidates, the study of which warrants a confluence of astrophysics, cosmology, and high-energy physics. If axions embody all of dark matter, their ubiquitousness places them from the cores of stars to dresses around compact objects, with their signatures in primeveal plasma until the cosmic microwave background. Shoot for the Axions, Aim for the Stars seeks to bridge through various aspects and subfields, weaving a community of budding researchers and leading scientists tightly together through a four-day long workshop this autumn. The workshop is scheduled with 3 plenary talks and a few submitted lightning talks with each day dedicated to one of the key focus areas:

• Theoretical Landscape
• Axion from Stars
• Axions in the Lab
• Axion signatures in cosmic photon fluxes
