Fermilab is hosting an international workshop on statistical issues in experimental neutrino physics, called Phystat-Nu Fermilab 2016. This workshop will bring together statisticians and experimental physicists to address the challenges raised in the design of future neutrino experiments and producing the most valuable results from running ones. The increased precision of current and future experiments requires careful review and selection of statistical techniques and procedures for controlling systematic uncertainty. The workshop will address interaction reconstruction techniques, selecting and classifying events, measuring model parameters, controlling systematic uncertainties, setting limits on rare processes, discovery of new processes and phenomena, choosing between models, Bayesian and frequentist techniques, and combining the results of experiments. Remote connections are available at http://readytalk.com with meeting ID 3872183. The US toll-free number is +1 866 740 1260 and the toll number is +1 303 248 0285. Computer audio and international toll-free numbers are available at http://readytalk.com

News:
The Fermilab indico system will also be unavailable Saturday, September 17, 2016, due to a scheduled power outage at Feynman Computer Center, which will last more than eight hours.

The venue for the workshop has been moved to the Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC) lecture room on the Fermilab site, next to the old CDF assembly building.  More information is available at  http://iarc.fnal.gov.  Here's a link to a map showing the location of IARC. Nearby parking is plentiful and is indicated in yellow on the map.
There is a $35 registration fee for this workshop. The registration fee covers coffee breaks, supplies and administrative costs associated with organizing the workshop.
On-site registration will take place on Monday morning, September 19, 2016, starting at 8:00 a.m. in the IARC Building.
