October 23 to 26, 2008
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA
This workshop will bring together both theorists and experimentalists with a wide range of expertise to discuss the current status of research on properties of neutrinos, their effects on cosmological and astrophysical processes, and the interplay between theory and ongoing and future experiments.
Topics to be covered include:
- Current understanding of neutrino properties
- CMB, large-scale structure, and neutrino mass
- Big bang nucleosynthesis and neutrinos
- Neutrino processes in supernovae
- Astrophysical neutrinos and their detection
- Neutrino oscillation experiments
- Neutrinoless double beta-decay experiments
- Next generation of neutrino detectors
By bringing together theorists and experimentalists from
diverse subfields we are hoping to stimulate discussion
and inspire forward-looking research that will produce
a comprehensive picture of the different aspects of
neutrino physics and astrophysics.
This workshop will be sponsored by the Fine Theoretical
Physics Institute and the Cosmology Group in the School
of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota.
Participation is by invitation only. We welcome and encourage
participation by graduate students. Please contact us with any questions by emailing neutrinos (AT) physics.umn.edu
