This work presents indirect searches for dark matter as WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles) using neutrino data recorded by the Super-Kamiokande detector from 1996 to 2014. No excess of neutrinos from possible dark matter sources such as Galactic Center, Sun and Earth, compared to the expected atmospheric neutrino background was found. Event samples including both electron and muon neutrinos covering a wide range of neutrino energies were used, with sensitivity to WIMPs masses down to tens of GeV.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
