Description

A quote famously attributed to Isaac Asimov is "the most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not `Eureka' but `That's funny ...'.''  Neutrino physics is arguably a field of research where this phrase can be heard rather frequently. Therefore, the goal of this theory-focused workshop, hosted by the CERN Neutrino Platform, is to discuss recent progress in neutrino physics, as well as the potential of future neutrino facilities.

Topics include

  • New theoretical and experimental results on the short baseline anomalies
  • Improving our knowledge about neutrino cross sections and the properties of neutrino beams
  • Astrophysical neutrinos and neutrino telescopes
  • New Physics searches with the near detectors of neutrino beam facilities
  • Connections between neutrino physics and collider physics
  • Neutrinoless double beta decay
  • Neutrinos in cosmology
  • Models of the neutrino sector

Registration: Attendance will be limited to around 80 participants. There is no registration fee. Applications to attend will be open until August 31st, 2019.

The scientific program of the workshop will begin on Monday, October 7, 2019 after lunch, and will conclude on Friday, October 11 around noon.

Travel support: Limited funds are available to support some participants' expenses.

      Nuclear reactors are the brightest man-made neutrino sources and have been the workhorse of neutrino physics since the discovery of the neutrino. In the 1970s Lev Mikaelyan realized that neutrinos also can be used to learn about the internal state of a nuclear reactor. The past decade has seen a significant increase in the interest in reactor neutrinos, thanks to the theta-13 experiments and the search for sterile neutrinos. In particular, I will discuss case studies we have performed for the historical case of the 1990s nuclear crisis in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and for the IR-40 reactor in Iran. I will report on on-going efforts to develop suitable detectors for surface deployment close to a nuclear reactor and comment on the role coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering may play. With the most recent results from PROSPECT and other experiments, for the first time, a real world capability exists and I will present recent efforts by an international group of reactor neutrino experts with regards to North Korea.
