DaMaSC - I (January 25, 2013)
DaMaSC - II (September 24, 2013)

The Dark Matter in Southern California (DaMaSC) Symposium series will connect the local scientific communities approaching dark matter detection from direct, indirect, and collider searches, as well as via astrophysical insights through gravitational lensing, galactic structure, and other astronomical observational approaches.  Our goals are to foster tighter networking among nearby researchers, and to create a forum to facilitate new cross-disciplinary collaborations. 

Funded through the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS), DaMaSC is envisioned to become a semi-annual meet-up of dark-matter enthusiasts in southern California.  Each Symposium will be divided into a small number of focused plenary talks, panel sessions, and moderated discussions.
