Nearly a decade ago, a clear path forward was developed by the neutrino physics community. Exciting new results have recently come out as early steps along that path. The time is now ripe to look at new experimental ideas that have arisen and the performance of current experiments. This conference will take the current status of experiment as its launching point. We will examine new accelerator and reactor oscillation results, prospects for learning about mass hierarchy and leptonic CP violation, and potential for new physics in oscillation experiments. We will also cover the latest developments in neutrino physics, astrophysics and cosmology more broadly, including neutrinoless double beta decay, neutrino interactions, and supernovae. The emphasis of the conference will be on how new experimental techniques and theoretical ideas will impact the future directions of the field.
