Daya Bay Visit Itinerary (Nov 27, 2003)
Map of Kowloon Hotel (Assemble place for Daya Bay visit)

There are strong evidences that neutrino oscillations have been observed in experiments studying solar neutrino, atmospheric neutrino, and reactor anti-neutrino. The next generation of reactor-based neutrino experiments could improve the precision of some of the neutrino mixing parameters, and demonstrate an unambiguous oscillation pattern. The goal of this workshop is to explore the possibility of using anti-neutrinos from the Daya Bay nuclear power plants to perform such a study of neutrino oscillation in southern China.
