The second edition of the theory workshop "Quarkonia meet Dark Matter" continues to provide particle physicists a platform for exchanging knowledge and methodologies at the intersection of both fields. In the spirit of the first edition in 2021, this workshop aims to foster interdisciplinary collaborations, to expand field horizons, to generate new research directions, as well as to solve open problems by applying novel concepts from one field to another. Key scientific topics on the intersection include effective quantum field theories for heavy quark-antiquark states inside the quark-gluon plasma and dark matter pairs in the early Universe, non-equilibrium quantum field theories for describing the system's dynamics such as the open quantum system and the Keldysh-Schwinger formalism, as well as effective field theories in the strongly coupled regime and other techniques for describing phase transitions of QCD at colliders and of new physics particles in the early Universe, such as dark sectors and their associated gravitational waves production.

Zoom broadcast:

The contributed talks will be broadcast online via zoom, accessible here: 


Informal Social Dinner:

The informal social dinner will take place on Wednesday at 19:30 (7:30pm) at "Gasthof Neuwirt" in Garching. We can easily get there taking one stop on the subway ("U-Bahn") from the station close to the workshop venue. There will be a small à-la-carte menue with specialties of the house. 
Tickets for the subway can be bought at the machines on the platform or via App (see for example:
