The goal of the workshop is to bring together  theorists and experimentalists to discuss searches, theories, results, opportunities, and, in general, new ideas for sub-GeV dark matter. It will focus on models and regions in parameter space that are overlooked by the standard WIMP studies, and that may open a new window into the dark sector. If the WIMP paradigm turns out to be wrong, new theoretical and experimental directions may prove to be of outmost importance. This workshop aims at developing such ideas, paving the way for the discovery of dark matter.

There is no registration fee and due to COVID-19 the workshop will be held online.
