International Neutrino Summer School
The Center for Neutrino Physics, the Department of Physics and the College of
Science will host the International Neutrino Summer School starting July 10th.
The two week school will be attended by more than 70 postdoctoral and graduate
students from 14 different countries. Students will attend lectures given by 14
top researches from around the world. Students will learn about such topics as
neutrino oscillations, neutrino mass, leptogenesis -- a theory in which
neutrinos may be responsible for the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the
universe, neutrinos in cosmology and astrophysics, neutrino interactions, the
physics of neutrino detection, and experiments with neutrinos from the upper
atmosphere, accelerators, nuclear reactors and the Sun. In addition to
attending lectures students will work in groups to solve problems such as
designing experiments to measure critical neutrino properties.
The International Neutrino Summer School is sponsored by the Virginia Tech
College of Science, the VT Physics Department, the Center for Neutrino Physics,
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the US Department of Energy, the National
Science Foundation, The Sanford Underground Research Facility, Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
