Antineutrino detection could be a tool to remotely monitor a nuclear reactor's power, burnup, fuel composition, and used nuclear fuel repository. However, it is challenging to build portable detectors based on existing inverse-beta-decay interaction. Coherent-elastic-neutrino-nucleus-scattering (CEvNS) has recently emerged as the next generation, potential candidate for antineutrino measurements with kilogram-scale detectors. Nonetheless, there are several questions that need to be answered in the context of nuclear nonproliferation and reactor monitoring which will be discussed in this panel discussion:
i) how low in antineutrino energy can one detect;
ii) can an improvement in energy resolution be realized;
iii) how can sensitivity to background radiation be treated;
iv) what level of confidence can CEvNS provide in measuring power and burnup;
v) how easily can they be deployed, and how much will they cost?
