Professors Takaaki Kajita (Japon) and Arthur B. McDonald (Canada) got 2015 Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery of neutrino oscillations and showing that neutrinos have non-zero mass. They led two independent research teams running their experiments at the Super-Kamiokande and SNO detectors, respectively.

What the neutrino oscillations phenomenon is all about? How one can study these elusive particles? How have Polish scientists contributed to the dicovery? What is current status and future prospects of reasearch in that field? The seminar will be an attempt to answer these and similar quastions. NCBJ scientists have been cooperating with Professor Takaaki Kajita for more than 10 years running both the Super-Kamiokande and the Tokai2Kamioka (T2K) experiments (the latter is an axtension of the former targeted at research on oscillations of accelerator-generated neutrions).

The seminar will be held in conference room in the Świerk Science & Technology Park. 
NCBJ bus leaves to Świerk at 10.15 am from entrance gate to the Hoża 69 premises in Warsaw.
