APC, Paris - February 13-15, 2008

Scientific Program
The idea behind the "The nature of Dark Matter at small scales" workshop is to bring together people, working on observations of the objects in the local halo, N-body simulations of structure formation, Lyman-alpha analysis, weak gravitational lensing, etc. The main goal is to understand what do we know about the nature of DM at galaxy scales.

Each day of workshop will be devoted to one of these topics (each presentation session followed the discussion)
  • What do we know about the nature of DM from observations of Local halo?
  • What is the current state of the art of numerical simulations of structure formation?
  • What can we learn about the nature of DM from cosmology (Lyman-alpha forest observations, weak gravitational lensing, etc.)
