The Invisibles18 Workshop is organised in the context of the Horizon 2020 funded projects ELUSIVES (674896-ELUSIVES-H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015) and InvisiblesPlus (690575-InvisiblesPlus-H2020-MSCA-RISE-2015), which focus on Neutrino and Dark Matter phenomenology and their connection, with emphasis on the role of the symmetry relating matter and antimatter. It is the seventh thematic workshop in the series initiated in connection with the past ITN project INVISIBLES.
