The aim of this mini-workshop is to discuss the recent status of Dark Matter searches and coherent neutrino scattering, with a stress on innovative technologies with low background, low energy threshold and directional capability. In this context, we are presenting a new international enterprise for the construction of a global galactic elastic recoil Observatory, to be called CYGNUS-TPC. We envisage the ultimate vision of this experiment to be a multi-ton target mass gas to be detected by Time Projection Chambers distributed in five underground laboratories scattered around the globe. We are currently building a new international collaboration to prepare a Letter Of Intent and a proposal.
For these reasons, the first day of the workshop will be dedicated to phenomenological and experimental reviews, together with CYGNUS-TPC presentation, while the second to a more detailed discussion of CYGNUS-TPC LOI and collaboration formulation.
