Dark Pollica


- Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, the workshop

is postponed to the summer of 2021 -

We will provide more updates on Dark Pollica 2021 soon.



One of the most profound mysteries facing fundamental physics is to understand and detect dark matter. This is a very exciting time to be working on the physics of dark matter: as experiments searching for WIMPs reach unprecedented sensitivities, new experimental and theoretical explore a wide range of alternative ideas for what dark matter could be and how it can be detected.

The first Pollica Summer Workshop on Dark Matter aims to bring together leading experts, both from theory and experiment, working on a broad range of ideas, existing and proposed experiments, in the beautiful setting of the medieval town of Pollica in Southwestern Italy (Cilento region). The workshop is scheduled for the dates of 15-26 June 2020.


Location: The workshop will take place in Castello dei Principi Capano, see the map for also nearby restaurant suggestions.
