Happy Birthday Borexino! A meeting to celebrate the 10th anniversary

"Recent developments in Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics" is the title of the meeting where scientists and researchers will celebrate ten years of Borexino data - taking and collaborations, next September 4-7 in L'Aquila.

 

The Borexino experiment - designed for world-class research in neutrino physics (especially, their oscillatory behavior), with particular emphasis on solar neutrinos and antineutrinos coming from Earth’s interior (geo-neutrinos) - began its data-taking phase in May 2007.

2017 is therefore the 10th anniversary of Borexino’s continuous data-taking: from September 4th to the 7th, physicists and astrophysicists will gather in L'Aquila to discuss new perspectives on the many neutrino topics under active research.

The meeting is organized as a workshop by the INFN Gran Sasso Labs and the GSSI, in order to allow wide discussions about all the diverse aspects of neutrino physics, the various neutrino sources and the approaches employed to probe them, as well as the models and approximations describing their behavior.
