Description: 

Dark Matter Interpretations for Direct Detection will be held at Lincoln College, Oxford on August 9, 2016. The workshop will focus on the recent use of Effective Field Theories and Simplified Models to characterise non-relativistic, momentum-dependent interactions of dark matter in direct detection experiments. In addition we plan to discuss the uncertainties introduced by these new techniques, the underpinning theoretical and astrophysical assumptions, and how each of these influence the final dark matter interpretation.
