Neutrinoless double beta decay is a crucial process to search for the violation of lepton number and a highly sensitive probe of the yet unknown absolute mass of light neutrinos. Its observation would have far reaching consequences for BSM physics.

This meeting is intended to give an overview of (1) the experimental status and future prospects of searches for neutrinoless double beta decay; (2) the status and progress in the determination of nuclear matrix elements; (3) and the theoretical aspects and developments of relevant models of lepton number violation.

The meeting will bring together experts in experimental and theoretical neutrino, nuclear and BSM physics, with talks targeted at the general high energy physics audience. Plenty of time for discussions will be provided.

The meeting starts at 13:00. Lunch will be served from 12:00.
