The George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy

Arnowitt Symposium and Mitchell Workshop on Collider and Dark Matter Physics 2015

The 2015 Mitchell Workshop on Collider and Dark Matter Physics will be held from May 18 – May 22, 2015, at the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University. The workshop will focus on recent results from collider experiments and progress in the field of dark matter. The second and third days of the workshop will concentrate on the work being done on collider experiments. There will also be discussion of the implications of recent results, and related topics in particle phenomenology. The final two days of the workshop will focus on a discussion of dark matter, with talks highlighting recent results from various direct and indirect experimental searches and also related topics in astrophysics and cosmology.

In order to honor the passing of our esteemed colleague, Dr. Richard Arnowitt, the first day of this year’s workshop will be dedicated to him. The Arnowitt Symposium will be held on May 18, 2015. Dr. Richard Arnowitt was a pillar of his field, and well known for his research on general relativity and the development of the ADM formalism with Dr. Stanley Deser and Dr. Charles Misner.
