International Pontecorvo Neutrino Physics School in Romania

News, 02 September 2019

From 1 to 10 September 2019, the 8th International Pontecorvo Neutrino Physics School is held in Sinaia, Romania. The School continues the tradition of the Pontecorvo Neutrino Physics Schools which were held in Dubna, Alushta, Horný Smokovec, and Prague in 1998, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015, and 2017.

The programme of the 8th Pontecorvo School covers a broad range of topics in neutrino physics and neutrino cosmology. The purpose of the School is to review the present status of experimental and theoretical neutrino physics. In total the School will accept 78 participants keen on the School’s topic and conducting research on neutrino physics.

Active participation of students and young scientists is a feature of these Schools. Tutorials, exercises, and questions and answers sessions are organized for this purpose. Students and young scientists are encouraged to bring posters presenting their research work. Following the tradition of previous years, the proceedings of the poster session will be published on the School’s website.

Topics of the School:

  • Theory of neutrino mixing and masses
  • Solar, atmospheric, reactor and geo neutrino experiments
  • Direct neutrino mass measurements
  • Neutrinoless double-beta decay (theory and experiment)
  • Neutrino-nucleus interactions
  • Sterile neutrinos
  • Neutrino cosmology and astronomy
  • Dark matter
  • Leptogenesis and Baryogenesis
  • Gravitational waves
  • Statistics for nuclear and particle physics

The School is organized by:
