Precision cosmology data identify dark matter as the main building block
for all structures in the Universe, however they do not discriminate
among the many viable dark matter candidates. Solving this puzzle
is certainly one of the greatest challenges in science today.
This program is dedicated to all aspects of dark matter physics:
its evidence and general properties, astrophysical and cosmological
signatures for the various candidates, as well as collider and other
experimental constraints for the underlying particle physics models.
Prospects and strategy for dark matter detection via direct and
indirect searches will be critically reassessed, also in light of related
searches for new physics at the LHC.
