Title: Dark matter and long-lived particles.
Abstract: Long-lived particles are a frequent prediction in realistic scenarios for dark matter. In this webinar I will explain how we search for long-lived particles at laboratory experiments and what these searches tell us about dark matter. My focus will be on dark sectors around the MeV-GeV scale, which leave signatures at colliders, at fixed-target experiments and even in cosmic air showers. I will show how particle physics and cosmology play together to probe the hypothesis of feebly interacting dark matter.
