Description

Interdisciplinary approach to QCD-like composite dark matter

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.
