Joint Indo-German School And Workshop 2007

Neutrinos in Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology

12-23 February 2007 - Mumbai, India

Scientific Program

JIGSAW 2007 is primarily aimed at advanced graduate students and post-docs working in the field of neutrino physics and its applications to astrophysics and cosmology. The school and workshop proceed in three stages. The first four days is the first phase of the school, followed by four days of the workshop (including a free-day) and ending with the second phase of the school that takes up the last four days. In the school there will be pedagogic lectures on selected topics in neutrino physics. The workshop will consist of invited talks on current research topics.There will be a poster introduction session on the first day of the workshop. The posters will remain on display for the entire period of the workshop.
