The Neutrinos from Stored Muons (nuSTORM) facility will provide a neutrino beam from the decays of muons confined in a storage ring with tunable momentum (1-6 GeV/c). The well-known flavour composition and energy spectrum of the beam will allow ultimate precision electron- and muon-neutrino scattering measurements to be made over the kinematic range of interest to future long-baseline experiments. They will also enable studies of neutrino oscillations and searches for beyond-the-Standard-Model (BSM) phenomena with a sensitivity that goes significantly beyond that of the short-baseline experiments currently in construction at FNAL. The development of this facility will strongly benefit the particle physics, nuclear physics and accelerator physics communities: the precise determination of neutrino-nucleus cross-sections will have a direct impact on the sensitivity of DUNE and Hyper-K to CP violation and will contribute to the development of the description of the nuclear dynamics; the nuSTORM target complex and storage ring will form an essential testbed for muon-collider R&D.

At the recent STFC HEP Forum, "Neutrinos: What? Where From? Where to?", it was proposed that a series of workshops be initiated with the support from STFC-PPD and IPPP to consolidate the nuSTORM effort in the UK, identifying the priorities of Standard-Model and BSM physics programs. This one-day in-person workshop aims to nurture discussions and bring together experts on the physics opportunities of nuSTORM. Topics that will be discussed include the status of its beam physics, its potential impact on our knowledge of neutrino interactions, its complementarity to other neutrino experiments, as well as the BSM physics that can be probed at the nuSTORM facility.

Following the IOP Joint APP and HEPP Annual Conference (3-5 April), this workshop will take place on 6th April (9:00-18:00) at the Institute of Physics (IOP) building at 37 Caledonian Rd, London N1 9BU. Although the event is free, registration is required due to space limitations for participation. Limited travel funding will be available for students and early career researchers. Please contact the conference co-chairs for more information.
