The goal of this school is to train the next generation of scientists working on neutrino–nucleus interactions through lectures given by world leaders in the field, discussion sessions, and tutorials. Lecture topics will include theoretical modeling of neutrino–nucleus interactions in various energy regimes, neutrino cross section measurements, Monte Carlo simulation, and physics at long-baseline neutrino experiments.
NuSTEC (the “Neutrino Scattering Theory Experiment Collaboration”, https://nustec.fnal.gov/) is a loose collaboration of scientists from a broad range of backgrounds united by the common goal of improving our understanding of the dynamics through which neutrinos interact with matter. This is crucial especially in the context of upcoming large neutrino experiments like DUNE, HyperKamiokande, FASERν, SND@LHC, Fermilab’s short-baseline neutrino program, and many others. In these experiments, cross section uncertainties are the main driver of systematics, so any improvement will immediately benefit their scientific potential. The way to achieve this is through a combination of dedicated measurements (for instance at NA61/SHINE) and a vigorous theoretical effort.
