that will happen in Madrid between 21-30 June 2020 20-29 June 2021
The purpose of our School is to offer a general overview of the state-of-the-art of gamma-ray dark matter searches and it is primarily aimed at students at the MSc and PhD level, as well as young postdocs working in the field.
Being an ISAPP school, it will closely follow the same format and spirit of previous ISAPP schools across the world.

The program will include introductory lectures on Astrophysics, Cosmology and Particle physics, as well as a series of more specific lectures on each of the main topics. We will also provide the students with some of the most useful computational tools in the field, by running a few hands-on sessions on specific yet quite standard dark matter work packages.


We are happy to count with some of the most renowned international experts for this exciting and intense scientific program!


Due to the COVID-19 world sanitary crisis, the School will happen online.

Yet, for now we keep open the possibility to have a hybrid format (in person + online).

We'll decide at a later time based on the evolution of the pandemic.
