Dark Matter Video Conferences

Various members of the Hub informally discuss topics in dark matter and related topics.  Meetings are held virtually using Zoom software.  2018 Winter/Spring meetings will be held on Thursdays at 3:00 pm EST.  Contact Evan Grohs ( for more information.

Collaboration Meeting: January 11-12, 2018

Hadronic Parity Nonconservation: March 15-16, 2018

Recent work applying large-Nc QCD to hadronic parity violation has yielded an organization of the five low-energy SP (or Danilov) amplitudes into a hierarchy, with two of the associated low-energy constants (LECs) of lowest order (LO) and three others of next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO) (see summary here).   This hierarchy, which differs significantly from that deduced from older meson-exchange treatments, appears to be in very good agreement with experimental data.

This organization alters the interpretation of and relationships between current and planned experiments.   It also opens up some important new opportunities for theory.  The purpose of the workshop is to convene the community in order to create a roadmap for future work, based on the understanding recently achieved through large-Nc QCD.

Virtual online seminar series:

  • Biweekly JINA online seminar series on topics relating nuclear astrophysics and nucleosynthesis. The talks are streamed online and held on Fridays, 2pm EST. Everyone is welcome to suggest seminar speakers and  topics. The seminar is meant to help coordinate and initiate research, and to help junior people establish  collaborations. The format will be a 35-40 min talk followed by 10-15 mins of questions. If you would like to receive notifications for future seminars, you can sign up for the seminar email list by sending an empty email to Jinacee_online_seminar-join (at)
