Center for Theoretical Underground Physics and Related Areas (CETUP*)
The Center for Theoretical Underground Physics and Related Areas is intend to be the central collaboration point for long term, intermediate, and programmatic functions for physics and related fields that deal directly with the experimental work being conducted at the worlds 20 plus underground laboratories. Our goal is to bring together people with different talents and skills to address the most exciting questions in physics, astrophysics, geosciences, and geomicrobiology.
2013 Program Dates and Location:
June 24 through July 26, 2013, Deadwood South Dakota, near the Sanford Underground Research Facility.
Please note that this is not a conference, but rather an Aspen, KITP, or INT style program.
The third CETUP* program took place on June 24 - July 26, 2013 in Lead/Deadwood, SD. There were 4-5 talks a day, with the afternoons left mostly free for discussions and collaborations. Although the program focused on theory, we had a few experimental talks as well. Dark matter, neutrino phenomenology and model-building as well as tests of grand unification were covered in the program.
The CETUP* attendees were provided by Deadwood-Lead Middle School with a spacious office space, access to the meeting rooms, break room, fax and copy machine, as well as high speed wireless internet connection.
