Unfortunately, we have to inform you that we have to cancel this year's  Antideuteron workshop. Although we were able to compile an interesting  list of speakers, it is, due to a number of conflicts, not as complete  as we anticipated. We will soon start the planning to hold the workshop  in the May/June 2018 time frame. For instance, the new antideuteron  experiment GAPS is currently in an interesting design and preparatory  phase before actual construction will begin. For next year's workshop, a  much more detailed overview of GAPS will be possible.  We deeply apologize to everybody who already committed to joining the  workshop this year  and potentially already initialized travel  arrangements. We hope that it is not causing too much inconvenience.  Rene and I decided to cancel for the sole reason to organize a more  complete and effective workshop for next year. 

Best regards,

Second cosmic-ray antideuteron workshop

The precise measurement of cosmic-ray antiparticles serves as important means for identifying the nature of dark matter. Recent years showed that identifying the nature of dark matter with cosmic-ray positrons and higher energy antiprotons is challenging, and has lead to a significantly increased interest in cosmic-ray antideuteron searches. Antideuterons may also be generated in dark matter annihilations or decays, offering a potential breakthrough in unexplored phase space for dark matter. As the first antideuteron workshop in 2014, the second iteration also aims at bringing together theorists and experimentalists in the field to discuss the current status and perspectives, including potential primary sources of antideuterons, uncertainties of antideuteron production and propagation in our Galaxy, and experimental cosmic-ray antideuteron search updates.
