SN neutrinos at the crossroads: astrophysics, oscillations, and detection


The next Galactic supernova (SN) would be a once in a lifetime event for particle astrophysics, offering a unique opportunity for a multi-messenger detection of gravitational waves, neutrinos of all flavors, and multi-wavelength photons. The aim of the workshop is to review and discuss the recent advances in the study of SN neutrinos and future perspectives, ranging from SN simulations, neutrino oscillations, nucleosynthesis, gravitational waves, and SN neutrino experimental searches. The workshop is structured to address these broad issues in a synergistic interdisciplinary way and to stimulate discussions and collaborations among scientists working on SN neutrinos from different perspectives.

Main Topics:


  • Core-collapse simulations
  • Microphysics of supernova core
  • Stellar nucleosynthesis
  • Neutrino flavor conversions
  • Exotic particle emissions
  • Neutrino detection strategies

        Colloqium: Chasing Neutrinos Around the World: A Personal History 1h

        ABSTRACT: Come hear a dramatic and entertaining account of the first half century of experimental neutrino science. Through rare photos, insider stories, and other primary source material, travel from Hanford and Savannah River in the US to South Africa, on to India, back to the US, over to Japan, and finally off to Sweden - twice! Hear about the soaring triumphs, crushing setbacks, and international rivalries which have helped define the last six decades in this challenging field, as well as what the
        near future has in store. This colorful lecture is based almost entirely on the speaker's first hand experiences as well as his interviews with other eyewitnesses to physics history.
