Virginia Tech Hosts the International Neutrino Summer School

      The Center for Neutrino Physics, the Department of Physics and the College of Science hosted the International Neutrino Summer School from July 10th through July 21st, 2012. The two week school was attended by more than 70 postdoctoral and graduate students from 14 different countries. Students attended lectures given by top researches from around the world. The lectures included topics such as neutrino oscillations, neutrino mass, leptogenesis (a theory in which neutrinos may be responsible for the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe), neutrinos in cosmology and astrophysics, neutrino interactions, the physics of neutrino detection, and experiments with neutrinos from the upper atmosphere, accelerators, nuclear reactors and the Sun. In addition to attending lectures students worked in groups to solve problems such as designing experiments to measure critical neutrino properties.
