The sixth Neutrino Geoscience international conference will be held in Paris, France, from Monday June 15 (morning) to Wednesday June 17 (afternoon) 2015, at the IPGP.
If you intend to participate in the conference, please fill the form available here
(A limited number of slots are available for talks but there will a poster hall)
Anti-neutrinos emitted from radioactive isotopes inside the Earth, geo-neutrinos, bring unique and direct information about the Earth’s interior and thermal dynamics. ”Neutrino Geoscience” has provided a new tool to study the Earth, and furthered connections between geophysics, geochemistry and neutrino physics communities. The purpose of this conference is to share the latest achievements and efforts and foster an understanding of the shared science interests of both communities.
To stay as lively as in the previous editions, we would like to limit the number of invited participants to 80 persons maximum. We kindly ask you to register at your earliest convenience.
The Neutrino Geoscience 2015 conference will be held at Institut de physique du globe de Paris. To get some details on how to reach the institute, see here (Îlot Cuvier).
You can find here a list of nearby hotels. Please contact directly any of the hotels, and be aware that hotel rooms may be difficult to find if not booked in advance.
The Workshop dinner will be held on the Tuesday 16 evening downtown Paris. We will let you know further details later. Participants will have to pay for their own dinner.
Deadline for registration: May 15 2015
