ABOUT

Welcome to IBS Conference on Dark World

The 1st IBS Conference on Dark World will be held for 30th October – 3rd November, 2017 at the Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe (CTPU) of Institute for Basic Science (IBS), located at the KAIST Munji Campus in Daejeon, South Korea.

IBS Conference on Dark World is a biennial meeting about physics of dark world, which is jointly organized by the three IBS centers on fundamental physics, Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (CAPP), Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe (CTPU), and Center for Underground Physics (CUP). The topics covered in the conference include dark matter, dark force, and related subjects in  physics  beyond the standard model of particle physics. This biennial meeting is aiming to bring together theorists, experimentalists and observers working in the field of cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics to discuss the latest results, ideas, and future prospects on physics of dark world.
