Colloquium Towards CP violation in neutrino Physics

The aim of the Colloquium is to present a status and plans for CP violation measurement in neutrino experiments.  It plans to provide an overview of recent experimental results, theoretical predictions, experiments under construction and planned experiments to measure CP violation in lepton sector.
It consists of invited talks.

      IceCube and IceCube-Gen2

      The IceCube experiment, a cubic kilometre neutrino telescope, was built at the South Pole with the goal of observing high-energy neutrinos from beyond our solar system. This goal has been achieved with spectacular success, and now the collaboration aims to identify the sources of these interstellar neutrinos. At the heart of the IceCube detector a more densely instrumented region, called DeepCore, enables atmospheric neutrinos, with energies as low as 5 GeV, to be studied. These studies have led to a number of measurements of neutrino-oscillation phenomena, which will be the focus of my talk. I will present recent measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters and tau-neutrino appearance, and a search for sterile neutrinos. I will then talk about the future, outlining plans for the next phase of neutrino astronomy at the South Pole, IceCube-Gen2, and presenting the physics case, at both low and high energies, for this exciting new venture.

      Global fits to neutrino oscillations: current status and robustness

      In this talk, I will summarize the current status of global neutrino
      oscillation analyses in the three-neutrino framework. I  will also
      discuss some scenarios where the precise measurement of the neutrino oscillation parameters, such as theta_13 or the CP violation phase, could be significantly affected by the presence of neutrino physics beyond the Standard Model.

      DANSS (Detector of reactor AntiNeutrino based on SolidState Scintillator)

      The detector (described in arXiv:1606.02896) is located at ~11 m from the core of industrial reactor (Kalinin Nuclear Power Plant, Russia) and is in operation for about 1 year, Looking for short-range neutrino oscillations.
      At the moment, together with ČVUT ÚTEF we construct a new version of the detector which could be installed at Temelin NPP (Czechia).
