The understanding of Supernova Neutrinos (SNs) is currently regarded as an extremely important in many sub-fields, including astroparticle physics, nuclear physics, and high energy physics. The neutrino energy spectrum is a key to understand the SN explosion mechanisms, as well as the production of heavy elements. Neutrinos can also be used to test fundamental physics, such as the existence of a neutrino magnetic-moment. However, galactic type II supernovae are relatively rare events, and their observation is not easy. The community also considers to detect diffused supernova neutrino background (DSNB). Although each community has an interest in this subject, there are not many opportunities to meet and discuss the status of the topic and see updates from of each community.

This one-day workshop is sponsored by the High-energy, Astro- and Nuclear Physics Groups of the Institute of Physics. We have invited inviting leading researchers from all three communities and we hope to stimulate discussions. For more information and registration, please follow the link:
