Next Generation Xenon-based Dark Matter and Neutrino Detection

The next generation dark matter and neutrino detection workshop will be held on February 1st and 2nd at the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University. The workshop will bring together experimentalists and theorists working in the fields of direct dark matter detection, astrophysical neutrinos, and neutrino-less double beta decay. The workshop will accommodate talks and ample time for informal discussion amongst participants. Talks and discussion will focus on motivating the scientific program, and research and development, for future multi-ton, Generation-3 (G3) Xenon dark matter and neutrino experiments.
