We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Frontiers of liquid Scintillator Technology (FroST16)

US/Central
Illinois Accelerator Research Center Building

Illinois Accelerator Research Center Building

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Batavia, Illinois
Description
There is a large international community interested in and pursuing liquid scintillator experiments for precision neutrino physics.  The Frontiers of liquid Scintillator Technology (FroST) workshop aims to bring together this community to discuss the requirements and challenges of moving forwards in this field, to discuss the physics that can be addressed by such detectors, the range of capabilities that can be achieved, ongoing R&D, and the optimal path forwards for this experimental program.
