Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

Harry Weerts | 19 February 2015A group of Japanese researchers is on a world tour of research institutes. They are working on a study of the technological and economic spin-offs of the ILC project and trends in research around the world in the fields of particle and nuclear fields, commissioned by Japanese funding agency MEXT. Harry Weerts, LCC Director for the Americas, reports from their visit to the US.

Harry Weerts | 13 November 2014The recent ICFA seminar addressed many topics and chartered the future physics landscape to fine and, if in the further future, less fine detail, says Harry Weerts, Americas Regional Director for the Linear Collider Collaboration. But he thinks one important thing is lacking: a mechanism on how to achieve consensus on what constitutes the global programme for particle physics in the future.

Harry Weerts and Mike Harrison | 22 May 2014After the release of the European Strategy for Particle Physics last year, the strategy process in the US is also being finalised. The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) was put together and charged by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) to create a “10 year strategic plan in context of a 20 year global vision” for the US programme. The complete committee report was presented to HEPAP today and discussions about its content are ongoing. The P5 roadmap outlines a broad particle physics programme for the US, including strong endorsements for the ILC in Japan.

Harry Weerts | 20 February 2014Over the past decades, colliders have defined the energy frontier in particle physics. Currently there are four studies worldwide: ILC, CLIC, FCC and a muon collider. Each high-energy physicist can argue about which one of these should be pursued and have his/her own preference. However, considering the strategic aspect and the time scale involved in realising these machines, the ILC is the natural next energy frontier machine. Harry Weerts, Americas Regional Director for the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains why.
