Scientific Program

The scientific program, at the interface of particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics, will focus on several aspects of light dark sectors that have recently received major developments. A tentative list of topics include

  • Light dark sector theory
  • Dark sectors at accelerators
  • Cosmological probes
  • Astro-physical tests
  • Quantum technologies for light dark sector searches

The aim of the PADUA workshop is to gather experts in the field to discuss recent developments and new ideas. There will be a few talks by invited speakers, in the morning and the afternoon, leaving plenty of time for discussions. The format is intended to provide a relaxed environment where informal discussions and exchange of ideas are nurtured.
