I Workshop on Physics and Astrophysics of Neutrinos from Supernovae
Since the explosion of the supernova SN1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a lot has been speculated about the mechanism of explosion of stars and the role of neutrinos in the stellar cataclysm. Neutrinos can be powerful tools to be used to investigate astrophysics and, at the same time, ideal environments to study neutrino properties, for example, its mass. Particle physics and astrophysics walk together and cannot be decoupled. This workshop aims to discuss the current status and future perspectives of the physics and astrophysics of neutrinos from supernovae. A complete overview of the present understanding of supernovae neutrinos, of the current mechanisms of stellar explosion and of the the numerial simulations will be presented. Several types of detection techniques, such as the water Cherenkov, scintillation, new argon detectors, such as the one under development in the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE), will be discussed.
