Science Program

With the IPA Symposium, WIPAC revives the historic Telemark meetings on neutrino physics. The topics include neutrino astronomy and related multiwavelength messengers (cosmic rays, high-energy gamma rays, gravitational waves), neutrino properties (including accelerator-based experiments), and related cosmological and dark matter aspects of particle astrophysics. The format will follow that of the Madison Pheno meetings with morning plenary talks and afternoon parallel sessions.
Confirmed plenary session talks include:
Trevor Weekes, Overview and History of TeV Gamma-Ray Astronomy
Giorgio Gratta, Overview of Double Beta-Decay Experiments
Yvonne Wong, Cosmology and Neutrino Mass Constraints
Jordon Goodman, Results from Milagro and Status of HAWC
Nathan Whitehorn, Results from IceCube
Jenny Thomas, Overview of Accelerator Neutrino Experiments
Keith Bechtol, Results from Fermi
Günter Sigl, Origin and Acceleration of Cosmic Rays
Paul Sommers, Ultrahigh-Energy Cosmic Rays
Sarah Church, The Planck Mission
Brian Humensky, CTA and the Future of High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy
Stefan Schoenert, Overview of Solar Neutrinos
