The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual event held at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in July-August. The Institute is a two-week-long Summer School. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of topical talks, discussion sessions, student projects and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to senior researchers.
The theme of the 2015 SLAC Summer Institute will be The Universe of Neutrinos. Although they were discovered almost 60 years ago, neutrinos remain in some ways the most mysterious part of the Standard Model. Morning lectures will cover all aspects of neutrino physics, including their multiple roles in both astrophysics and cosmology, to how the properties of neutrinos may be extracted from experiments in the future. In the afternoons, topical conference talks will alternate with discussion sessions, student projects, tours, and poster sessions.
All lectures and Topical Conference sessions will be held in the Kavli Auditorium. For other locations of events, please check the Indico Time Table room assignment.
