Neutrinos Beyond IceCube

The one-day workshop "Neutrinos Beyond IceCube" is being held today in Arlington, Virginia. The workshop brings in experts to review and discuss potential enhancements to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.

IceCube’s recent discovery of a flux of high-energy neutrinos from outside the solar system marks a turning point for neutrino astrophysics. The workshop examines possible upgrades to the IceCube observatory designed to explore this high-energy flux.

In addition, the workshop will investigate methods to detect and measure the flux of cosmogenic neutrinos at the highest energies. At the other end of the energy spectrum, ideas to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and measure neutrino oscillation parameters using high statistics of atmospheric neutrino samples obtained with PINGU will be discussed.

A full list of speakers can be found here. Speakers include IceCube researchers and other leaders in neutrino astronomy, who will cover topics like the recent results in neutrino oscillations, the neutrino mass hierarchy, air showers, and the next decade in neutrino astronomy.
