After two successful symposia in 2019 and 2020, we are happy to announce the third edition of the Kashiwa Dark Matter symposium this fall to be hosted by the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR) at the University of Tokyo. As in the past years, the symposium shall serve to exchange latest results between the various communities of experimental searches, particle physics theory, and astrophysics. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and to allow a worldwide inclusive and eco-friendly participation, we host again a virtual conference format.
The goal of the symposium series is to bring together international researchers from all relevant experimental and theoretical fields in current and future dark matter searches. This year, we will include a focused session on primordial black holes as Dark Matter candidates, covering theoretical and cosmological aspects, as well as experimental searches for them.
We encourage especially young researchers and students to attend and to present at the symposium.
The final schedule time table can be found under Schedule.
The registration is now closed. Thank you so much for your registration with your interest!
The deadline of the call for abstracts was November 1st, 2021, 23:59 UTC. Applicants for contributed presentations was notified November 9 on the presentation's acceptance.
We would also like to warmly thank Stephen Wilkins from the University of Sussex to provide us with a template of the website system. Please also check out the SAZERAC online conference series, using the same framework.

(Adapted from SAZERAC) Attendance at the Kashiwa Dark Matter symposium 2021 is a privilege, and attendees are expected to behave professionally. The symposium organisers are committed to providing an atmosphere that encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas.
By participating in the Kashiwa Dark Matter symposium 2021 as an attendee or presenter, you agree to abide by this code of conduct. Failure to adhere to this code of conduct in all circumstances related to the symposium, including in the online sessions, or any in person, telephone, or other electronic communication, will result in removal from all symposium events.
Our scientific community values all members, regardless of (alphabetically) age, cultural background, disability, ethnicity, gender identity, marital status, nationality, physical appearance, political affiliation, pregnancy, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and status as a caregiver (including as a parent). The ability to allow our community to share its research results and promote the careers of junior attendees depends critically on maintaining a culture of inclusivity, where all voices are respected and heard.
The symposium organisers will not tolerate verbal, nonverbal harassment or bullying of any kind and will give high priority on eliminating sexual harassment in any form from the workplace. Behavior and language acceptable to one person may not be to another. Members must make every effort to ensure that words and actions communicate respect for others, regardless of opinion regarding the person or their scientific results.
During symposium sessions, the Session Chair is in charge. Speakers must keep to their allotted time, ideally using a timer. If they exceed their time, their question time will be reduced, and if they speak through all of the question time, they will be disconnected. As listener, when asking questions to speakers, please be professional, courteous, and polite. If a participant engages in obvious harassing behavior during the presentations, the Chairs may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or removing them from the conference.
Participants who believe that they have witnessed or been negatively impacted by a possible violation of the Code of Conduct should contact the Equal Opportunites Responsible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate a complaint, including any available evidence (e.g., screenshots) in their email. The Equal Opportunites Responsible will treat the appeal at maximum discretion and anonymity when discussing with SOC. If a majority of the SOC concurs that this code has been violated, the offender will be immediately removed from all symposium-related events. The offender will then be contacted by the SOC, and will have the opportunity to appeal the decision. This appeal will be considered by the SOC, whose decision will be final.
