Event Details & Abstract: 

The MINOS experiment has been the work horse of the Fermilab neutrino program and over the last 7 years has contributed to a number of seminal measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters. MINOS+ is starting now, a new phase of the experiment, to search for any-new-effect-it-can-find in the neutrino oscillation spectrum, but will also continue to contribute to the "standard parameter" measurements worldwide. Finally, a new vision for the Fermilab neutrino program could include further exploitation of this NuMI neutrino beam, the most powerful in the world. CHIPS is one such experiment, planned to measure delta-CP before anyone else does!
