The third edition of DaMaSC will focus on dark matter signals from outer space. Through a handful of focused talks and open panel discussions, the aim will be to review the current potential dark matter signals and dissect the assumptions behind them. Are these signals compatible with the expected dark matter distribution in galaxies or galaxy clusters? Could a multi-wavelength approach help confirm or disprove these potential dark matter signals? What are the implications of these tentative results on direct and collider dark matter searches? Drawing on the local expertise of the Southern California dark matter community, the symposium will address these questions through in-depth discussions and what will surely be lively debates.

This symposium is open to all interested faculty, researchers and students in the Southern California area (and beyond!).

Coffee breaks, lunch, and a wine-and-cheese reception will be provided for all attendees.
