Celebration of the start of the MICE study of ionization cooling

The STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is hosting an event to mark the start of the study of ionization cooling with the international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE). Ionization cooling is the technique by which it is proposed to reduce the muon-beam phase space in a future neutrino factory or muon collider. The event, which has been jointly organised by the collaboration and STFC, will start with an “extended seminar” on the physics potential of muon-accelerator based facilities in the field of neutrino physics and at the energy frontier. The staged development of the programme and the technologies required will be discussed. And, of course, the status of the MICE experiment and its future development will be presented. A public lecture will follow the seminar. Finally, a short reception after the public lecture will allow informal discussion of the scientific and technological opportunities that the programme has to offer.
