The present school will take place on the Dutch island Texel, 26 June - 5 July 2017, and is dedicated to a range of topics that are focused on indirect searches for signals from particle dark matter in astronomical observations.

The topics include sources, acceleration, propagation and detection of cosmic rays, gamma-ray astrophysics, astroparticle statistics, the production and distribution of dark matter in the Universe, and the current status of indirect dark matter searches. It will finish with a look to future prospects and opportunities of the field.

The school is open to PhD students and young post-docs working in high energy astrophysics, cosmology and particle physics. No prior knowledge on dark matter research is required.
