The 4th CYGNUS workshop on directional dark matter detection organized by Japanese directional dark matter search communitiy is held at Toyama (Entrance of Kamioka), from June 10-12, 2013. This international conference will bring together the scientific community working on both theoretical and experimental aspects of directional dark matter detection and the galactic dark matter distribution. Directional detection of galactic Dark Matter is a promising search strategy for discriminating genuine WIMP events from background ones. In this conference we focus on : technical progress on gaseous detectors, data analysis (3D, sense recognition, ...), experimental results from directional prototypes, phenomenological studies, dark matter halo dynamics. CYGNUS 2013 is the 4th in a series of directional dark matter detection workshops. The original meeting, CYGNUS 2007 was held at the Boulby Underground Laboratory in the UK. The second, CYGNUS 2009, was held at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in June 2009, and CYGNUS 2011 was held at Aussios (France), from June 7-10, 2011.
