IceCube at Neutrino 2012

The IceCube Collaboration is pleased to announce participation in the upcoming 25th International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics June 3-9, 2012 in Kyoto, Japan. The conference, known as "Neutrino 2012," is a premiere international meeting covering neutrino physics, current and future detection technology, and neutrino beams.

IceCube principal investigator Francis Halzen will chair the Experimental Neutrino Astronomy session on Friday, June 8th. The following IceCube collaboration members will give talks during the session:

IceCube spokesperson Greg Sullivan, University of Maryland, will cover "IceCube: Diffuse neutrinos from GRB/AGN"; Aya Ishihara, Chiba University, "IceCube: Ultra high energy neutrinos"; Albrecht Karle, University of Wisconsin-Madison, "A review of future experiments"; and Markus Ahlers, University of Wisconsin-Madison, "Neutrinos as a probe of ultra-high energy cosmic rays."

Carsten Rott from the Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics at Ohio State University will present "A review of indirect WIMP search experiments" during the dark matter session on Saturday, June 9.

IceCube Collaboration members will also be in attendance to present posters, including topics such as the search for dark matter, neutrino oscillations, high energy neutrino point sources, neutrino radiography, supernova detection, and possible IceCube extension.
