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.
