With less than 5% of the energy content of the Universe identified, the discovery and identification of both dark matter and dark energy are among the paramount problems in physics today.  DSU07 is the third meeting in this series devoted to questions pertaining to dark matter and dark energy. DSU05 held was held in Seoul and DSU06 in Madrid.

DSU07 will bring together a wide range of theorists and experimentalists to discuss current ideas and models of the dark side and relate them to current and future direct and indirect detection experiments.

Topics covered include:

  • Current and future direct detection experiments
  • Neutrino detectors
  • Gamma ray experiments
  • Related accelerator searches
  • WMAP
  • SN Ia
  • Weak Lensing
  • X-ray observations
  • Simulations
  • Inflation
  • Dark energy theory/Quintessence
  • Modifications to gravity
  • Dark matter theory including SUSY dark matter and axions
