The Virginia Tech Center for Neutrino Physics will host an international workshop on the theme: 'Sterile Neutrinos at the Crossroads'. The idea for this workshop was triggered by the recent accumulation of possible indications of a sterile neutrino with broad relevance to neighboring fields in theory and experiment.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts in the various sub-disciplines, such as nuclear theory (reactor fluxes, nucleosynthesis) and experiment (reactor experiments, flux measurements, LSND/Karmen, MiniBooNE), cosmology (WMAP/Planck), neutrino phenomenology (global fits, alternative models), in order to critically review the evidence for and against sterile neutrinos and to discuss the need or otherwise to pursue dedicated new experiments and possibly new strategies.
