  Abstract:

Understanding the nature of Dark Matter (DM) is one of the key scientific questions in
Particle Physics. Among the different scenarios for DM, one that is particularly interesting
and relatively unexplored is the conjecture that DM particles are composite states of a new
strongly coupled gauge sector like QCD. This origin could explain the stability of DM, the
stringent constraints on its interactions with nuclei, and galactic structure anomalies
potentially related to large DM self-interactions. In addition, composite DM candidates
appear naturally in models of new physics motivated by the gauge hierarchy problem. A
successful understanding of this paradigm requires insight from nuclear physics, strongly
coupled quantum field theory, model building, cosmology and astrophysics. The goal of this
workshop is to promote progress in composite DM research through an interdisciplinary
approach that brings together experts from these different fields to exchange knowledge
and plan future joint efforts.

ECT* - European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas

                  

The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) provides a dedicated and structured combination of scientific activities for a large international scientific community. ECT* acts as an "intellectual" centre of competence, complementary in scope and activities to existing research facilities based at universities or experimental laboratories. It promotes coordination of European research efforts in nuclear physics and related research areas.
