Kashiwa-no-ha Dark Matter and Cosmology Symposium (Satellite workshop of COSMO 2024)


The Kashiwanoha Dark Matter and Cosmology Symposium is a continuation of the Kashiwa Dark Matter Symposium. The Kashiwa Dark Matter Symposium is a yearly conference that started in 2019 sponsored by ICRR (+grants). From 2024, this conference is organized by IPMU and while maintaining the original goals, we are also expanding the scope to include topics relevant for the researchers at IPMU. The Kashiwanoha Dark Matter and Cosmology symposium series has the goal to regularly bring together international researchers from all relevant experimental and theoretical fields in current and future dark matter searches and cosmology. This year, we will have a special symposium since we are combining it with the “Satellite workshop of COSMO 2024” which will bring international researchers attending COSMO 2024 in Kyoto to IPMU. We believe this is a great opportunity to have a very strong line up of speakers and participants in cosmology and dark matter at IPMU.
