The NOvA experiment has made measurements of the disappearance of νµ and the appearance of νe in the NuMI beam at Fermilab including the neutrino mass hierarchy and the CP violating phase. Key to these measurements is the application of machine learning methods for identification of neutrino flavor and energy reconstruction. These methods require rigorous validation to both understand and...

The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory(JUNO) is a liquid scintillator detector aiming to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and to perform precision measurements of neutrino mixing parameters by detecting reactor antineutrinos at a baseline of 53 km. JUNO physics programme also serves for the detection of supernova neutrinos, geoneutrinos and solar neutrinos. In order to achieve the...

Borexino is the world radio-purest large-volume liquid-scintillator detector placed at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy. Since the start of its data taking in May 2007, it has provided several measurements of solar neutrinos and geoneutrinos. Recently, Borexino has released new results concerning comprehensive spectroscopy of the pp-chain solar neutrinos. The talk will brifely...

The next generation of LBL experiments is currently under preparation. These future experiments will profit from new and high intensity neutrino beams which will allow very large samples of data to be collected. A deep understanding and strong constraint of the systematic uncertainties is thus mandatory to achieve precision measurements and to allow the experiments to fulfil their physics...

Uncertainties on neutrino-nucleus scattering cross sections are among the dominant systematics in long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments, despite partial cancellation from near detector measurements. I will review the most important issues facing current experiments, and discuss what is required for next generation precision measurements.

The twin challenges facing the DUNE long-baseline analysis are to extract the maximum statistical power from the Far Detector data while minimizing the impact of systematic uncertainties. The liquid argon TPCs that make up the DUNE Far Detector will provide outstanding spatial resolution, and should allow neutrino flavours to be separated with high efficiency and purity. However, taking...

Hyper-Kamiokande is a next-generation underground water-Cherenkov detector, which is to be constructed from 2020. The physics program of Hyper-K includes a nucleon-decay search, a CP-phase measurement in the lepton sector with an accelerator neutrino beam, the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy with atmospheric neutrinos, and the observation of astrophysical neutrinos. Thanks to...

The MicroBooNE detector is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) with an 85-ton active mass, situated at Fermilab in the Booster Neutrino Beam and designed to study short-baseline neutrino physics. Its main physics goals include the investigation of the anomalous excess of electron-like events observed in MiniBooNE, the measurement of low-energy, neutrino-argon cross-sections and the...

The oscillation analysis at T2K, even with limited statistics, has needed to improve and constrain the model of neutrino interactions in order to reach its current sensitivity. I review the interaction model, some of the most important uncertainties in the model for the oscillation analysis, and techniques for constraining those uncertainties through measurements of neutrino interactions.

I will present the details of the systematic uncertainties at NOvA for the latest measurements of both (anti)neutrino electron appearance and muon disappearance, as well as the systematic uncertainties associated with recent cross section results. NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino experiment which utilizes two basically fully active, finely segmented, liquid scintillator detectors: a Near...

MINERvA began its cross section measurement program with a default model that looks very different than the used in its most recent measurement. I summarize the improvements and the measurements that have driven those changes. Recent data highlights areas in need of future refinement. I also discuss how the results of these improvements may be utilized by other experiments for their modeling.
