International workshop on “Dark Matter and Stars”, Lisbon, Portugal

The goal of the workshop is to bring together scientists working across different research fields of stellar astrophysics and dark matter to discuss the current status and the future prospects of dark matter research. This meeting aims to discuss the recent advances in dark matter particle candidates, solar and stellar astrophysics, including helioseismology and asteroseismology, as well as compact astrophysical objects like neutron stars and white dwarfs. Moreover, we will also discuss the possibilities open by the next generation of stellar space observatories to the research in dark matter.

We seek to encourage dialogue between different research groups to enhance collaboration and help to improve our understanding of the dark matter. The workshop was also planned with the aim of introducing the dark matter research field to encourage attendance by young scientists including PhD students.
