The first stage of the GVD-cluster which consists of a five strings is deployed in April 2014 in Lake Baikal. We review the architecture of the GVD data acquisition system and describe the configuration and design of the 2014 engineering array.

KM3NeT is a European deep-sea research infrastructure that will host a neutrino telescope with a volume of several cubic kilometers at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. The telescope will search for galactic and extragalactic neutrinos from distant astrophysical sources like gamma ray bursts, super-novae or colliding stars. The analyses performed in large ice and water Cherenkov detectors...

KM3NeT will be a km3-scale neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. The detector will consist of several blocks of about one hundred detection units. Each detection unit will host 18 Digital Optical Modules (DOMs), connected along a 700 m-long vertical structure. Electro-optical cables allow for data transmission and power supply to the DOMs. The optical module comprises 31...

The IceCube experiment has recently detected the highest-energy neutrino events yet recorded. This data is remarkable both for the significant excess of neutrino events above known backgrounds, and also for the conspicuous lack of events both above and below 1 PeV. I’ll discuss a simple model of neutrino self-interactions mediated by a MeV-scale boson that can account for these peculiar...

KM3NeT (http://www.km3net.org) will be the next-generation cubic-kilometre-scale neutrino telescope to be installed in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. This location will allow for surveying the Galactic Centre, most of the Galactic Plane as well as a large part of the sky. The search for neutrinos from galactic sources is a relevant physics objective for KM3NeT. Among galactic point-like...
