We are organising the special topics working group on Cosmological
connections within the ALCPG Workshop in Snowmass (14-27 August). We
are inviting you to contribute to this working group.
Details on the Workshop and the general charge for the Physics Working
groups can be found at
The topics that should be addressed by our working group are listed
below. If you intend to contribute on one of these topics (or on
another relevant topic for dark matter or cosmology that might have been
omitted from this list) please contact us.
A) Which measurements are important to make at colliders for accurate
determination of relic density and/or cross-sections relevant for
direct/indirect detection of dark matter?
1. Existence of SUSY and SUSY mass ranges and couplings from LHC/ILC
2. Existence of Xtra-Dim, measurements at LHC/ILC
B) Dark matter in direct/indirect detection: LSP mass, couplings to
nuclei, helo profile. Correlation between dark matter signals in
direct/indirect detection and new physics at colliders (including the
case of a positive
signal in only one type of experiment).
C) Dark matter candidates and possible tests at ILC: LSP in MSSM and
beyond (CP violation, NMSSM ...), superwimps, Kaluza-Klein dark matter,
Little Higgs models ...
