In this talk, I consider the possibility that dark matter is part of a larger hidden sector, which interacts feebly with the standard model via dark forces. The hidden sector paradigm introduces a wealth of new search strategies, and I discuss the discovery prospects for dark forces at experiments ranging from Super-K to LHCb.

With the overwhelming gravitational evidence for dark matter, the hunt is on for nongravitational interactions of dark matter with the standard model. In this talk, I consider the possibility that dark matter is part of a larger hidden sector, which interacts feebly with the standard model via dark forces. The hidden sector paradigm introduces a wealth of new search strategies, and I discuss the discovery prospects for dark forces at experiments ranging from Super-K to LHCb.
