Constraining Dark Matter hypothesis through observations of Dwarf Spheroidal galaxies with the GLAST-LAT detector. (15'+5')
 
Measurement of gamma-rays from dark matter annihilations is perhaps one of
the most challenging tasks for future gamma-ray observatories, such as the
Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST). GLAST, launched on June 11   
2008, is the next generation satellite for high-energy gamma-ray astronomy
and the Large Area Telescope (LAT), GLAST main instrument, has excellent   
potential to either discover or to constrain a dark matter signal.

Dwarf spheroidal galaxies, the largest clumps predicted by the cold dark
matter scenario, are attractive targets for indirect search of dark matter
because they are amongst the most extreme dark matter dominated
environments.

We present an overview of the GLAST Dark Matter and New Physics Working
Group efforts in the study of the LAT capability to detect a gamma-ray
flux coming from WIMP pair annihilations in Dwarf spheroidal       
galaxies.
