Title: 
Perspectives for neutrino oscillations after the discovery of theta13
Abstract: 
We discuss the measurement of the remaining neutrino oscillation parameters (CP phase and mass ordering) in existing and future experiments. While long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments will play a major role in the search for leptonic CP violation, the mass ordering may be discovered in atmospheric neutrino oscillation experiments by Earth matter effects, or medium baseline reactor neutrino oscillation experiments by the scan of multiple oscillation maxima. One very promising option, we are going to address, is an upgrade of the IceCube-DeepCore array to lower energies, called PINGU (Precision IceCube Next-Generation Upgrade). It could be used as an atmospheric neutrino detector, or even serve as a target for a neutrino beam.
