    Description: Title: Towards robust predictions of dark matter distributions around galaxies

    Abstract:
    A robust description of the distribution of dark matter around galaxies is vital for interpreting indirect and direct searches for the responsible particle. While numerical predictions have been available for many decades, the simplest models disagree with increasingly reliable observational data from rotation curves and gravitational lensing. I will review attempts to understand the sources of this discrepancy, focusing on astrophysical mechanisms for altering the dark matter distribution within the paradigm of a cold, collisionless particle. I will critically assess where more work is required to reach a full understanding, and discuss a new technique – "genetically modified” cosmological simulations – that is designed to provide physical insight into this and other problems with our galaxy formation paradigm.

    Description: Title: LHC and Cosmic Rays : the Chicken or the Egg?

    Abstract:
    In recent years the interpretation of high energy cosmic ray measurements took
    another direction. From the astrophysical point of view, it was usually
    admitted that extra-galactic charged cosmic rays were protons, but mass
    composition results for the Pierre Auger Observatory, in particular using
    hadronic interaction models updated with LHC data, show that a mixed
    composition is observed at energies well above the ankle of the spectrum.
    Realistic air shower simulation and hadronic interaction models are the key
    points for a proper interpretation of charged cosmic ray data and data
    measured at the LHC are a fundamental ingredient for these models. On the
    other hand, hadronic models used for cosmic ray analysis
    have a better predictive power than traditional high energy physics
    monte-carlo for minimum bias analysis at the LHC. After a first part
    dedicated to EPOS LHC and QGSJETII-04 hadronic interaction models and their
    comparison to LHC data, the latest results from Pierre Auger Observatory will
    be presented with a focus given on mass composition and constrains on
    hadronic interactions ... leading to
    better models to describe LHC data.
