Workshop
Applied Antineutrino Physics 2007

December 13-14, 2007
APC Laboratory, France (APC)

The "Applied Antineutrino Physics 2007" workshop will be the fourth international meeting devoted to the opening of the neutrino physics to more applied fields, such as geophysics and geochemistry, nuclear industry, as well as the nonproliferation.

This meeting will highlight the world efforts already engaged to exploit the single characteristics of the neutrinos for the control of the production of plutonium in the civil nuclear power reactor. It will bring together experts in detection of antineutrinos, as well as international experts in nonproliferation, in order to underline the interest and the future possibilities offered by antineutrinos.

The potential industrial application of the measurement of the thermal power of the nuclear plants by the neutrinos will be also approached.

Geoneutrinos were for the first time highlighted in 2002 by the KamLAND experiment. Several international efforts are currently underway to use geoneutrinos to reveal the interior of the Earth. This meeting will be an opportunity to adapt the efforts of detection to the real needs of geophysicists and geochemists (sources of radiogenic heat, potassium in the court, feathers.)

Finally more futuristic topics such as the detection of nuclear explosions, of low powers, will be also discussed.

To stay as lively as in the previous editions, we would like to limit the number of invited participants to 50 persons maximum.

Following the successful AAP workshops (Hawaii 2004, Hawaii 2005, San Francisco 2006) on applications of antineutrino detection in the field of non proliferation, geophysics, and other applied topics, we are organising the fourth edition of the AAP workshop on December 13-14, 2007, at the new Astropartcle and Cosmology Laboratory (APC), located inside Paris. To stay as lively as in the previous editions, we would like to limit the number of participants to 50 persons maximum.
