This is a small, focused, informal theory workshop to explore physics related to coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering.
Participants will be mainly theorists, but will include also some experimentalists.
The two main topics will be:
- Physics motivations for measurements of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (beyond-the-standard-model searches, nucleon distributions, neutrino magnetic moment, sterile oscillations…)
and reach of near-term and farther future experiments.
- Calculations of inelastic neutrino interactions on nuclei in the few tens of MeV regime, which may be non-negligible background (as well as being interesting in themselves).
We are hoping that the main output will be a “science book” to be used to guide future experimental work and proposals.
