The Sixth International Workshop for the Design of the ANDES Underground Laboratory will take place August 4-6 2018 in São Paulo, Brazil, continuing the School on Dark Matter and Neutrino Detection. It follows the workshops held in April 2011 (Argentina), June 2011 (Brazil), January 2012 (Chile), January 2014 (Mexico) and June 2017 (Argentina).

The workshop will be devoted to the structure of the international consortium to be built to run ANDES, on the latin-american and international participation, with a specific focus on the role for the local brazilian groups. The schedule will be:

  • 4 August: Generic scientific workshop, with presentations about science in underground laboratories and future potential experiments for ANDES
  • 5 August: Discussion and open table on the international consortium structure
  • 6 August: First steps towards the establishment of the consortium, with a specific focus on latin-america and Brazil

The confirmation of the building of the Agua Negra tunnel, financed by the Inter-American Development Bank, together with the finalization of the ANDES conceptual design and the official support of EBITAN to add ANDES to the Agua Negra tunnel civil work make ANDES closer to completion. This workshop will focus on the remaining steps needed to plan the opening of ANDES. More information: http://andeslab.org/workshop6/ 

The program will be online in the third week of July

There is no registration fee.
