International Workshop on "RENO-50" toward Neutrino Mass Hierarchy

13-14 June 2013, Seoul National University, Korea
Overview Home > Overview

Dear colleagues,

We would like to call your attention to an international workshop on RENO-50 that will be held at Seoul National University, Seoul in Korea on June 13-14, 2013.

The recent measurement of a rather large neutrino mixing angle theta_13 has promoted the opportunities to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and the leptonic CP phase. Reactor neutrinos have been demonstrated to be a valuable source to measure neutrino mixing angles, and possibly to determine the mass hierarchy.

After the successful RENO experiment, we plan to build a next large liquid scintillator detector to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and make an unprecedentedly accurate measurement of the mixing angle theta_12. The detector is also expected to detect neutrinos from the Sun, the Earth, and Supernova and to search for a neutrinoless double beta decay.

This workshop is aimed to discuss the best strategy for determining the neutrino mass hierarchy, and the physics potentials of RENO-50. We begin to organize an international collaboration of RENO-50. Those who are interested in joining the efforts are welcome to attend.
We look forward to seeing you in Seoul.

Soo-Bong Kim
