Welcome to the 43rd SLAC Summer Institute

The Universe of Neutrinos

August 10-21, 2015
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, California

The 2015 SLAC Summer Institute will focus on the physics of neutrinos. Although they were discovered almost 60 years ago, neutrinos remain in some ways the most mysterious part of the Standard Model--we  don't even know their masses or whether they are their own anti-particles. The neutrino sector may be responsible for the baryon-antibaryon asymmetry of the universe and some form of neutrinos might be the gravitationally observed Dark Matter. The development of a variety of probes to illuminate the detailed nature of the neutrino sector has made this one of the most exciting and today, inspiring a plethora of new experimental and theoretical efforts. Morning lectures will cover all aspects of neutrino physics, including their multiple roles in both astrophysics and cosmology, to how the properties of neutrinos may be extracted from experiments in the future: reactor, long- and short-baseline measurements, searches for neutrinoless double beta decay, lepton flavor violation and direct production of heavy neutrinos at the LHC. In the afternoons, topical conference talks will alternate with discussion sessions, student projects, tours, and poster sessions.
