Title:  Dark matter particles and where to find them

Dark matter is one of the most fundamental questions of our time.  Observed via gravitational effects, it may also weakly interact with ordinary matter and be detectable in particle physics experiments.  Two planned searches for dark matter will be discussed: a collider search with the upgraded ATLAS detector at CERN, and a direct detection search with the next-generation DEAP experiment at SNOLAB.
