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.

PhyStat-nu Fermilab 2016

US/Central
Louis Lyons (Imperial College, London and Oxford), Thomas Junk (Fermilab)
Description
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
