Prof. Dr. Michael Klasen (Univ. Münster):

Dark matter theory: Status and perspectives

Dark matter (DM) research is currently entering a golden era. There is
 overwhelming evidence for its abundance in the Universe, five times
 larger than ordinary matter, known with sub-percent precision, but
 unexplainable in the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics,
 neutrinos being too light. DM therefore provides the only clear
 evidence for physics beyond the SM. We will review theoretical models
 and detection prospects for Weakly Interacting Massive Particle DM both
 top-down from Supersymmetry and bottom-up with Minimal Models.
