16th International Workshop on Neutrino Factories and Future Neutrino Beam Facilities

25 -30 August, 2014
University of Glasgow, United Kingdom
These proceedings present the written contributions from participants of the 16th International Workshop on Neutrino Factories and Future Neutrino Beam Facilities (NUFACT 2014) that was held at the University of Glasgow (Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom) from 25-30 August 2014. This edition of the NUFACT annual meetings, which started in 1999, consisted of 24 plenary and 92 parallel talks and various poster sessions, with the participation of 124 delegates. Furthermore, the International Neutrino Summer School 2014 was held from 10-22 August 2014 at St Andrews, Scotland, in the two weeks before NUFACT 2014. It was intended for young scientists with an interest in neutrino physics in such a way that they would be able to participate and contribute to the NUFACT workshop as well. The objectives of the NUFACT workshops are to review progress on different studies for future accelerator-based neutrino oscillation facilities, with the goal to discover the mass hierarchy of neutrinos, CP violation in the leptonic sector, charged lepton flavour violation, and possible new phenomena. The workshops are interdisciplinary in that experimenters, theorists and accelerator physicists share their expertise to further developments in accelerator-based neutrino facilities. The organisation of the workshop is based around four working groups: Neutrino Oscillation Physics, Neutrino Scattering Physics, Accelerator Physics and Muon Physics. Each workshop is tailored to ensure continuity and growth of knowledge from the previous workshop, by posing a series of questions that are updated on a yearly basis. These proceedings reflect a summary of the topics covered during NUFACT 2014 and reflect not only the state-of-the-art in current experimental endeavours in neutrino physics, but also the current thinking towards developing the next generation of accelerator-based neutrino and muon facilities, with the goal to determine solutions to some of the most fundamental questions in particle physics. It is a pleasure to thank the University of Glasgow and the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA) for sponsoring the workshop and the Glasgow City Council for organising a Civic Reception for the delegates. The lively and stimulating atmosphere was aided by the other social events during the workshop, a whisky tasting session delivered with great enthusiasm and knowledge by Dr David Wishart, an excursion to Stirling Castle and a workshop banquet at the Bute Hall of the University of Glasgow, in which Professor John Butt, the university’s Gardiner Professor of Music, played the magnificent Lewis Organ in the Bute Hall. The editors wish to thank the Scientific Program Committee and the Working Group conveners for their engagement in making NUFACT 2014 a success, and all participants for the high quality of their contributions. We now look forward to the next instalment of the NUFACT conferences to be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2015. We also wish to thank Ms Valerie Flood, especially, for providing all the administrative support of the workshop. Paul Soler and Ryan Bayes, Glasgow, 2014.
