The nature of dark matter remains one of the most important outstanding problems of astroparticle
physics and cosmology. Progress on indirect and direct searches for non-gravitational signals
from dark matter has been reported in over 50 contributions to the 36th International Cosmic-Ray
Conference in Madison. Besides updates on well-established searches for Weakly Interacting
Massive Particle dark matter, which continue to improve in sensitivity by 1–2 orders of magnitude
per decade, a wide range of new/alternative dark matter search strategies were discussed. These
include new detection strategies, new targets, and searches for, e.g., hidden photons, axion-like
particles, primordial black holes and strange quark nuggets. Here, I provide a succinct overview
of these contributions, including expectations for the upcoming years.
