The Future of Neutrino Mass Measurements:
Terrestrial, Astrophysical, and Cosmological Measurements
in the Next Decade

February 8-11, 2010


A central part of this workshop is the critical discussion of the status and future prospects of laboratory experiments and astrophysical and cosmological observations of neutrino mass. To help workshop participants prepare for the meeting the organizers have compiled a selected set of papers that describe the current status of the fields. We encourage workshop participants to suggest additional literature to refer to during the workshop discussions. Please email the workshop organizers at with additional suggestions.
