The European COST Action CA21106 "Cosmic WISPers in the Dark Universe: Theory, astrophysics and experiments" is an initiative funded by the COST Association, whose goal is to study axions and other very weakly interacting slim particles (WISPs) emerging 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.
The COST Action CA21106 1st Training School will be held in Lecce (Italy). The goal is to start training a generation of young scientists in the interdisciplinary expertise on WISPs, ranging from theoretical and experimental approaches to multi-messenger astroparticle physics and cosmology. For this purpose, the Training School will offer lectures from experts on different aspects of WISPs physics. The School is aimed at PhD students, as well as early-career postdocs.
