Description

Light Dark World 2017 

October 19 - 21, 2017

University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Light Dark World 2017 is the second meeting of the Light Dark World International Forum. It will be held on October 19 - 21, 2017 at the University of Pittsburgh, jointly hosted by the Pittsburgh Particle physics Astrophysics and Cosmology Center (PITT PACC) of the University of Pittsburgh and the Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe (CTPU) of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS).

Light Dark World 2017 will continue the successful inauguration meeting, Light Dark World 2016 and bring together global experts from experiment and theory to discuss recent advances in the field of light new particles beyond the Standard Model, as well as develop new opportunities to study new light hypothetical particles, including light gauge bosons, light dark matter, axions and axion-like particles, sterile neutrinos and more.
