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.

The organizers for this season are:

  • Kirsty Duffy
  • Simone Marcocci
  • Anne Norrick
