DM-Stat: Statistical Challenges in the Search for Dark Matter (18w5095)

January 25, 2018 - January 27, 2018

The overarching objective of the DM-Stat workshop is to bring expert statisticians in techniques which may help or accelerate the eventual discovery of particle DM, together with leading physicists in areas relevant to the discovery of dark matter and its particle properties. The goal is to proceed via a set of distinct objectives: 1) Begin effective collaboration between the DM and astrostatistics communities; 2) Single out problems in the search for dark matter which can be effectively tackled with advanced statistical tools; 3) Introduce DM physicists to modern statistical tools, and provide them with resources to use them; and 4) Integrate statisticians and their expertise into teams looking for DM.
