Axions and other very weakly interacting slim (m<GeV) particles (WISPs) are easily accommodated in several extensions of the Standard Model of Particle Physics.  Searches for WISPs are strongly motivated by our attempts to understand the nature of the dark matter and puzzling astrophysical and particle physics observations.

This Kick-off Workshop is the first Network Activity of the COST Action "COSMIC WISPers in the Dark Universe: Theory, astrophysics, experiments" (CA21106). The objective of  the meeting is to initiate a discussion among the different communities involved in the project, with the immediate aim of reviewing the present experimental and theoretical status of WISP searches and plan further directions of investigation.

The  Kick-off Meeting will be held in the Bruno Touschek Auditorium (Bldg. 36, access from LNF secondary entrance in Via E. Fermi, 60 - see map).

Local Organizing Committee: Susanna Bertelli, Alessandro D'Elia, Claudio Gatti, Maddalena Legramante, Enrico Nardi, Elena Patrignanelli, Alessio Rettaroli, Simone Tocci.

On Wednesday 22 February Caterina Braggio's seminar on Axion Searches with Quantum Technologies (in italian): https://agenda.infn.it/event/34604/
