Modern particle physics wonderfully summarizes forces and particles in the Standard Model. While providing many answers and insights into the nature of the universe, several mysteries remain: to name just the best-known examples, the standard model fails to explain the mass-energy content of the universe, its accelerated expansion and the asymmetry between matter and antimatter.
Possible answers lie in the so-called dark sector, which could be populated by new fundamental particles such as axions, WISPs and WIMPs. Their properties are still a mystery. But dark sector research is gaining momentum and is attracting the efforts of scientists from many international institutions and collaborations.

The "19th Patras Workshop on Axions WIMPs and WISPs” is the latest event in an annual conference series launched at CERN in 2005. This year’s workshop, returning to its namesake, Patras, aims to continue the rich and successful series by reviewing recent advances in both theory and experiments. New ideas as well as astrophysical and cosmological results in this field will be presented. The participation of young scientists is strongly encouraged.
