The roadmap for high-energy physics in the US from P5

and | 22 May 2014 After 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Future Colliders: A strategic perspective

| 20 February 2014 Over 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,
