After almost two years of major work on the machine and its detectors, the Large Hadron Collider is in the middle of the so-called commissioning phase. During the roughly two months of commissioning, the operators check out every little system in the large complex that is the LHC. LCC Director and former LHC project leader Lyn Evans watches and learns from the sidelines.
Around the World
At the ILC Tokyo Symposium, held on April 22, 2015 at the Ito International Hall in Tokyo, Japan, members of the Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) issued a statement confirming their conviction of the scientific justification for a prompt realization of the International Linear Collider (ILC). The event included more than 300 global participants from the Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW) 2015, members of the high-energy physics community, government officials, ambassadors and members of the press.
