Dark matter : WIMPs and beyond

Geneviève Bélanger (LAPTH, Annecy)

In this talk I review the current status concerning dark matter WIMP candidates. I then introduce alternative dark matter production mechanisms, in particular the case where dark matter is very feebly coupled and produced throughout the freeze-in mechanism. Some signatures of this class of models are discussed.
