IUCSS Workshop on

Exploring Lorentz Symmetry with Neutrinos

March 10-11, 2012

Indiana University, Bloomington

An IUCSS Workshop on Exploring Lorentz Symmetry with Neutrinos will be held in the Physics Department, Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A. on March 10-11, 2012.

The Workshop focus will be on the search for Lorentz violation in the neutrino sector in the context of realistic field-theoretic models and the SME. Neutrino experimentalists and theorists will review existing and forthcoming studies and discuss prospects and strategies for future searches. The Workshop format is expected to be short talks with time for discussion.

Topics in Lorentz violation that may be discussed include:

  • oscillation searches using accelerator, atmospheric, reactor, and solar neutrinos
  • neutrino time-of-flight measurements
  • effects in beta-decay experiments
  • null short-baseline and perturbative long-baseline tests
  • sidereal variations, compass asymmetries, neutrino-antineutrino mixing
  • realistic field theory for neutrinos with Lorentz and CPT violation
  • Lorentz-violating neutrino phenomenology, neutrino anomalies
  • global Lorentz-violating models of neutrinos

There is no registration fee for this Workshop, but online registration on or before February 15 is required. Due to space limitations the total attendance is likely to be capped, so early registration is advised to avoid disappointment.

The Workshop hotel is the Indiana Memorial Union. This is located on campus close to the Physics Department and offers convenient access to the meeting venue. Parking in the hotel lot is free to hotel guests. A block of rooms is reserved until February 1 under the block code LVNU12. Reservations can be made at (812) 856-6381 or (800) 209-8145. Partial support for local housing may be available upon request.
