Baby MIND: A magnetised spectrometer for the WAGASCI experiment / Hallsjö, Sven-Patrik (Glasgow U.) /Baby MIND
The WAGASCI experiment being built at the J-PARC neutrino beam line will measure the ratio of cross sections from neutrinos interacting with a water and scintillator targets, in order to constrain neutrino cross sections, essential for the T2K neutrino oscillation measurements. A prototype Magnetised Iron Neutrino Detector (MIND), called Baby MIND, has been constructed at CERN and will act as a magnetic spectrometer behind the main WAGASCI target. [...]

Novel Design features of the Baby MIND Detector for T59-WAGASCI experiment / Parsa, Saba (U. Geneva (main)) /Baby MIND
Baby MIND is a magnetized iron neutrino detector, planned to serve as a downstream magnetized muon spectrometer for the WAGASCI experiment, on the T2K neutrino beam line in Japan. Access restrictions in its intended location in Japan drove a completely new design of the magnetic modules, a departure from the traditional toroidal magnetized iron detectors such as CDHS and MINOS.

ENUBET: High Precision Neutrino Flux Measurements in Conventional Neutrino Beams / Pupilli, Fabio (INFN, Padua) ; Ballerini, G (Insubria U., Como ; INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Berra, A (Insubria U., Como ; INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Boanta, R (INFN, Milan Bicocca ; Milan Bicocca U.) ; Bonesini, M (INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Brizzolari, C (Insubria U., Como ; INFN, Milan Bicocca) ; Brunetti, G (INFN, Padua) ; Calviani, M (CERN) ; Carturan, S (INFN, Legnaro) ; Catanesi, M G (INFN, Bari) et al.
The ENUBET project aims at demonstrating that the systematics in neutrino fluxes from conventional beams can be reduced to 1% by monitoring positrons from K$_{e3}$ decays in an instrumented decay tunnel, thus allowing a precise measurement of the $\nu_e$ (and $\overline{\nu}_e$) cross section. This contribution will report the results achieved in the first year of activities. [...]

A low-cost Cherenkov detector to be tested in CERN's T9 beam line / Felici, Maria Rita (Unlisted, IT) ; Cameli, Luca (Unlisted, IT ; INFN, Rome) ; Camilli, Alessandro (Unlisted, IT) ; Castelli, Vanessa (Unlisted, IT) ; Catalini, Francesco (Unlisted, IT) ; Cipolletti, Samuele (Unlisted, IT) ; Crescenzi, Federico (Unlisted, IT) ; Decembrini, Niccolò (Unlisted, IT) ; De Paolis, Aurora (Unlisted, IT) ; Fattenotte, Francesco (Unlisted, IT) et al.
The TCO-Asa is a 2015 established team of high-school students of the Liceo Scientifico T. Calzecchi Onesti, in Fermo (Italy), who built a detector instrumented by consumer components including a CMOS camera and a silicon photomultiplier readout by the open-source ArduSiPM kit, to study the Cherenkov effect in water.This proceeding presents the main activities of the students that included the definition of the geometry of the detector, the realisation of the structure prepared by Scanny3D, the optimisation of the coupling between the water and the sensors, the experiences with 18F (prepared by Acom SRL) and 226Rd radioactive sources, and the results of the tests performed at the Beam Test Facility in INFN-Frascati in 2016.The team proposed to expose the detector to a test beam at CERN in 2016 and in 2017 within the Beamline for School initiative.

Application of SiPM arrays for the readout of a scintillator based time-of-flight detector / Korzenev, Alexander (Geneva U.) ; Betancourt, C (Zurich U.) ; Blondel, A (Geneva U.) ; Brundler, R (Zurich U.) ; Dätwyler, A (Zurich U.) ; Favre, Y (Geneva U.) ; Gascon, D (ICC, Barcelona U.) ; Gomez, S (ICC, Barcelona U.) ; Mermod, P (Geneva U.) ; Noah, E (Geneva U.) et al.
A feasibility study of replacing a conventional phototube with an array of SiPMs is presented. High gain, low voltage operation and insensitivity to the magnetic field make SiPMs practically useful for the light collection in a physics experiment. [...]

A narrow band neutrino beam with high precision flux measurements / ENUBET Collaboration
The ENUBET facility is a proposed narrow band neutrino beam where lepton production is monitored at single particle level in the instrumented decay tunnel. This facility addresses simultaneously the two most important challenges for the next generation of cross section experiments: a superior control of the flux and flavor composition at source and a high level of tunability and precision in the selection of the energy of the outcoming neutrinos.
