Cerdeño (IPPP, Durham University), Elias Lopez Asamar (Durham University), Ki-Young Choi, Kiwoon Choi, Linda Wilkinson (IPPP, Durham University), Marco Taoso, Roberto Alfredo Lineros Rodríguez (Instituto de Física Corpuscular UVEG/CSIC), Sven Heinemeyer (IFCA (CSIC))

The workshop is oriented towards dark matter physics and will cover a wide range of subjects. The aim is to promote the collaboration and exchange of ideas. The list of invited speakers includes theoretical as well as experimental physicists.

The Institute for Basic Science (IBS), comprises 20 centres, including three experimental and theoretical ones on particle physics and cosmology:

MultiDark (Multimessenger Approach for Dark Matter Detection), is the Spanish project for dark matter searches consisting of 11 theoretical, experimental and astrophysics groups from 18 Spanish universities and research institutes.

The Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology (IPPP), is a centre of particle phenomenology in the UK, and is a joint venture between Durham University and the Science and Technology Funding Council (STFC) of the UK.
