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.


ZOOM meetings Lab policy: You absolutely must not post Zoom meeting IDs on any public website unless you set a password to protect the meeting/event. Of course, do not post the password on any public website, either.
For details please refer to the news article https://news.fnal.gov/2020/05/security-guidelines-for-zoom-meetings-2/ Zoom information should be either given on email request or stored on a SharePoint page behind SSO".
Do NOT post the zoom information in the field 'Venue/Location' since it will show in the weekly Calendar even if the event is protected!


Indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software: https://getindico.io/roadmap/


This search is only for public events. Restricted events are not available.

The MINERvA Neutrino Masterclass is where students, working with teachers and physicists, get to be neutrino-physicists-for-a-day. In this masterclass they will:

  • learn about MINERvA and particle physics
  • make a measurement of now neutrinos interact with the atomic nucleus
  • pool their results
  • discuss results with their peers in the masterclass and across the world in a masterclass videoconference.

It will help to know more about International Masterclasses and what we mean by a "masterclass". We know that a violin or a flute masterclass is - students learning their art with a master musician - but what is it in the context of particle physics?

This is all exciting but, since this masterclass is about neutrinos, maybe we should learn something about them:

Neutrinos are quite different from other particles and very difficult to detect. Thus we need specialized detectors, like MINERvA.
