Joint Indo-German Supernova Astroparticle Physics Workshop

22-26 February 2010 - Mumbai, India

Scientific Program

Our understanding of the collective phenomena that affect neutrino flavor conversions inside the star is still incomplete. These effects may in turn influence the supernova dynamics as well. The aim of this meeting is to bring together experts working on various aspects of this phenomena, review the progress in understanding them, and discuss future courses of action.

The workshop will be limited to about 20 participants who are active in the field of supernova neutrinos. The number of formal talks will be small, and most of the time will be available for discussions.

The Schedule

(All talks before Lunch will be in AG66. All talks after Lunch will be in AG69.)
