Baikal Collaboration Meeting to take place at DLNP at JINR

News, 03 June 2024

On 4–7 June 2024, the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems at JINR will host a working meeting of the Baikal Collaboration in a hybrid format. More than 70 participants of the collaboration, representatives of nine scientific and educational centres from four countries, will discuss the results of the last winter expedition on the construction of the Baikal-GVD Deep Underwater Cubic-Kilometre Neutrino Telescope, the current status of analysis of new and previously accumulated data, modeling software development issues, and immediate plans for the development of the Baikal Neutrino Observatory.

Baikal-GVD (Baikal Gigaton Volume Detector) is the largest neutrino telescope in the Northern Hemisphere. Its primary task is to register and study ultrahigh-energy neutrino fluxes from astrophysical sources. The Baikal Neutrino Telescope is being built by an international collaboration under the leadership of the RAS Institute for Nuclear Research (Moscow), the founder of the experiment, and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna).
