ANT 2011 "Advances in Neutrino Technology"
October 10, 2011
A new generation of large detectors are now being designed that will probe the question of neutrino CP violation, determine the neutrino mass hierarchy, investigate both galactic and cosmological supernovae, and advance the search for proton decay.
Such detectors will have to be in the 100's of kiloton range, but at the same time must possess the excellent sensitivity achieved in smaller detectors. They must also be affordable - and possible to construct at the depths required to avoid cosmic ray backgrounds.
Thus ANT'11 is a meeting devoted entirely to technology for such detectors. Discussions will be informal and in-depth - at a level typically seen only at collaboration meetings. ANT'11 is the third in a series of workshops that allow people from different collaborations to come together to share ideas at this level.
