Applied Antineutrino Physics
2006 Workshop

AAP 2006 showcased ongoing efforts worldwide to exploit the unique features of antineutrinos for cooperative monitoring of reactors. International experts in both antineutrino detection and nonproliferation participated, providing up-to-date technical and policy guidance about the integration of antineutrino detectors into nonproliferation regimes.

We expected that the balance between nonproliferation and technical expertise would provide the community with a realistic framework for future work. With this aim in mind, conference attendees developed a white paper to summarize the state-of-the-art in applied antineutrino detection and chart a course for further developments in this burgeoning field.

Dates: September 24–26, 2006

Location: Wente Vineyards, Livermore, California, USA
