3rd DarkMachines workshop: Advanced Workshop on Accelerating the Search for Dark Matter with Machine Learning



This workshop is the third edition of a series of yearly meetings of the Dark Machines community (, a research collective of physicists and data scientists. The aim of the workshop is to answer cutting edge questions about dark matter with the most advanced techniques that data science provides us with. The researchers coming to this workshop will bring together expertise in particle physics, astrophysics, cosmology, statistics and information science (machine learning) and plenty of time will be devoted to discussions and brainstorming.
