The Rencontres du Vietnam on NuFact 2016 is the eighteenth in a series that started in 1999 as an important yearly workshop with emphasis on future neutrino projects.
The main goals of the workshop are to review the progress on studies of future facilities able to improve on measurements of the properties of neutrinos and charged lepton flavor violation as well as new phenomena searches beyond the capabilities of presently planned experiments. Since such progress in the neutrino sector could require innovation in neutrino beams, the role of a neutrino factory within future HEP initiatives will be addressed.
The workshops are not only international but also interdisciplinary in that experimenters, theorists and accelerator physicists from the Asian, American and European regions share expertise with the common goal of designing the next generation of experiments.
The NuFact16 workshop is divided into five Working Groups covering the following topics:Working Group 1: Neutrino Oscillation Physics
Working Group 2: Neutrino Scattering Physics
Working Group 3: Accelerator Physics
Working Group 4: Muon Physics
Working Group 5: Neutrinos Beyond PMNS
NuFact16 will be preceded by the International Neutrino Summer School (INSS 2016) that will also be held in Quy Nhon, Vietnam from 17 to 30 July 2016.More information about the conference
