    Workshop on Reactor Neutrinos

    November 6-8, 2013

    The topic of the workshop is the calculation of antineutrino spectra from nuclear reactors. Accurate spectra and fluxes are crucial for the interpretation of experiments measuring neutrino conversion rates such as Double Chooz, RENO, and Daya Bay.

    If possible, the workshop should result in a documented consensus theory of the antineutrino spectrum, including open source codes to calculate the spectrum.

    Additional models goals are to identify experiments that need to be done and calculations that need to be carried out to resolve current disagreements.

    Please contact A. Sonzogni for further information and to participate.
    Preliminary Schedule
    All talks will be in room C-520 except for Wednesday after 2 PM when talks will move to C-421.
