Neutrino Seminar Series

Neutrino Seminar Series and Neutrino Discussions

The Neutrino Seminar Series and Neutrino Discussions are intended to provide an opportunity to communicate ideas between the neutrino experiments and inject insight from relevant outside experts.

Regularly scheduled seminars will be held bi-weekly on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00, in Wilson Hall One West. Discussions will be scheduled as needed and provide expanded time (up to 2 hrs) for detailed discussion.

Please see the schedule below for details. Discussions are marked accordingly.
You can find a preview of some of the talks scheduled for the next season at this link: 2018/2019 Neutrino Seminar Series.

The organizers for this season are:

  • Evan Niner
  • Simone Marcocci
  • Raquel Castillo Fernandez

For mailing list subscription, scheduling, questions, and comments concerning this season of talks, please email the organizers.

Zoom Connection Details

Connection details will be sent in seminar announcement emails. If you are unsure how to connect, please contact the organizers.
