Annual Meeting of the Astronomische Gesellschaft 2014, Bamberg, Germany
Thursday, September 25, 14:00 - 18:00
Unveiling the nature of Dark Matter is one of the most important challenges of the physical sciences today. While the concept of Dark Matter is based on astronomical observations, the search for the fundamental Dark Matter particles is a main subject of astroparticle physics. To constrain the parameter space of Dark Matter particle physics models, these searches rely on accurate predictions of the density distribution of Dark Matter in the Galaxy, which in turn get tested by more and more precise astronomical observations.
The splinter meeting aims at bringing Dark Matter experts of both the astronomy and astroparticle physics communities in close discussion.
The program of the splinter meeting consists of both invited and contributed talks.
Session 1: 14.00 - 15.30 h
|14:00||M. Steinmetz (invited):||The Dark Matter distribution in the Galaxy|
|14:30||J. Jochum (invited):||Direct search for dark matter|
|15:00||U. Schwanke (invited):||Indirect search for dark matter with gammas and neutrinos|
Session 2: 16.00 - 18.00 h
|16:00||W. Porod (invited):||Models of dark matter and constraints from the LHC|
|16:30||H. Gast (invited):||Search for dark matter with charged particles|
|17:00||M. Fink||Gravitational Dynamics of the Milky Way's Halo|
|17:20||A. Koch||Dark-matter dominated ultrafaint dwarf galaxies - a chemical abundance view|
|17:40||A. Gleixner||Indirect search for dark matter towards the centre of the Earth with the ANTARES neutrino telescope|
