Deadwood, South Dakota it is for this week. The IX International Conference on Interconnections between Particle Physics and Cosmology (PPC2015) at The Lodge at Deadwood, to be even more precise. Yesterday we had our excursion to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, today I gave my presentation on Dark Matter searches in ATLAS (so I’m done with the compulsory part .. hehe) and tonight we’ll have the conference dinner :)
It’s all a bit in the middle of nowhere, but it’s seemingly really beautiful landscape in the Black Hills and the Badlands. Unfortunately, I ain’t got no time to see it all, or even a small part for that sake.
