The Dark Matter 2021 Conference has now concluded.

It was scheduled to take place in Summer 2020, but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. In the end, it took place virtually from September 13th to 16th, 2021. Given the circumstances, the conference had a lighter schedule than originally planned, running Monday - Thursday (4 days), from roughly 4pm - 7.30pm (CEST) each day.

Watch on Youtube - The conference was live-streamed on youtube and you can watch the full recordings on the IFCA Youtube Channel here:

Dark Matter 2021 is a meeting devoted to discussing the latest developments in the field of dark matter from the perspective of both theory and experiment. Presentations will include results from experiments in earth (accelerators, direct detection, gamma rays) and space (cosmic/gamma rays, X-rays), and indirect detection from astrophysical observations. In addition to the experimental discussion the theoretical status will be presented by world experts. Dark Matter 2021 is 'hosted' by the Instituto de Física de Cantabria (IFCA) in Santander, Spain. However, due to the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will take place with a predominantly virtual format.

Confirmed speakers include: Rebecca Leane (SLAC), Gordan Krnjaic (Fermilab), Teresa Marrodan-Undagoitia (MPIK Heidelberg) & Katelin Schutz (MIT).
