The tenth AAP (Applied Antineutrino Physics) workshop will be held in Paris, France, from Monday December 15th (morning) to Tuesday December 16th (afternoon) 2014, at the APC (AstroParticle and Cosmology) laboratory in the Pierre Gilles de Gennes auditorium.
The Applied Anti-Neutrino Physics workshops (2013 Seoul, 2012 Hawaii, 2011 Vienna, 2010 Sendai, 2009 Angra, 2007 Paris, 2006 Livermore, 2005 & 2004 Hawaii) are focused on applications of neutrinos such as non-proliferation or geophysics.
As a result of these workshops, several small antineutrino detectors, designed explicitly for reactor monitoring, are being built or operated worldwide. Applications to the detection of hidden nuclear reactor and nuclear explosion are also being investigated. With an eye to this maturing technology base, IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) has convened an international Working Group to consider possible applications of antineutrino detectors in current and future safeguards regimes. The Working Group consists of IAEA, National Laboratories and academic participants.
The field of geoneutrinos made significant progress over the last ten years thanks to the measurements by KamLAND and Borexino. Future experiments will further improve these results and constrain Earth models.
To stay as lively as in the previous editions, we would like to limit the number of invited participants to 60 persons maximum. We kindly ask you to register at your earliest convenience.
