Primordial black holes can account for all or part of dark matter, and they could be the key to a range of astrophysical puzzles.  The workshop will focus on the production, astrophysical effects, and ongoing search for primordial black holes.   The subject has a strong overlap with scientific programs at Kavli IPMU, as it engages particle physicists, astrophysicists, and cosmologists, building on synergy of the multidisciplinary institute.
