The ISAPP summer school on “The dark side of the Universe” will be held at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik (MPIK) in Heidelberg, Germany. The school's goal is to cover all modern topics of astroparticle physics from an experimental, theoretical and phenomenological point of view. The school is primarily aimed at PhD candidates working in this field.

The scientific program consists of lectures including introductory pre-courses on particle physics and cosmology. Furthermore, there will be poster presentations for which participants are encouraged to contribute posters on their current research.
