Description Wilson Hall Spring

NuInt07 is the fifth in a series of workshops concentrating on low-energy, neutrino-nucleus interactions. The goal of this series is to bring theorists and experimentalists from the nuclear and high-energy communities together to address the many challenges to understanding these complex interactions. After reviewing the motivation for these studies and the ongoing experimental efforts, the topic of nuclear effects will be introduced and each of the neutrino-nucleus scattering channels that contribute in the low-energy regime will be covered. Recent scattering results from oscillation experiments as well as the potential of experiments specifically designed to study these interactions will be discussed. The work of both nuclear and high-energy theorists to provide improved theoretical descriptions of these channels will also be reviewed.
