Axion Theory and Searches

Axion theory and searches

10-12 June 2015

IPhT CEA/Saclay


This was an informal meeting on axions, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. It consisted of a small series of lectures on basic aspects from experts in the field and then a few seminars on recent selected topics. Special attention was paid to guiding participants with a different background along their learning curve and on stimulating interactions among them.

This was the third in a series of tiny-workshops held in the context of the activities of the ERC Starting Grant project: 'NewDark: New Directions in Dark Matter Phenomenology at the TeV Scale'. Support from the ERC is acknowledged.
