It should be emphasised first that the goal is neither to disseminate amongst physicists and astrophysicists the evidence for a dark component in galaxies, nor to overstate its scientific importance compared with other cosmological and astrophysical issues. Regular meetings, workshops and conferences are instituted to achieve these goals. The aim of DMAW 2010 is instead to provide scientists working in many different areas, related in several different ways to dark matter, an improved knowledge of the phenomenology of its distribution in galaxies.They ask for participation through local seminars, and to make it easy for lazy people they will provide a seminar template on galactic dark matter. Of course I registered myself as a participant, by promising to give a seminar on Tuesday Dec 7 at 2pm at VUW. It remains to book a room and find a few audience members!
