Rika Takahashi | 12 November 2015Counting down to the ski season, still off-season Whistler, in British Columbia, Canada, was an ideal place for student to concentrate on the study for the 9th International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders.
Rika Takahashi | 29 October 2015The ILC Progress Report is a document outlining the technical progress after the publication of the Technical Design Report (TDR) in 2013. It contains the information regarding the progress in civil engineering studies, accelerator hardware design/development updates, accelerator system layout updates, integration/test facilities to be prepared for “hub-laboratory functioning, and updated project implementation plan, and further preparatory work.

Rika Takahashi | 22 January 2015The LCC Directorate was given a special treat during one of the stopovers of the Tohoku visit (read also the Director’s corner): ILC korone, a type of chocolate croissant. With chocolate cream on one side (representing electrons) and vanilla cream on the other (representing positrons), and sprinkled with colored chocolate spray as particles, the baker said that they show you new particles at ILC collisions. A delicious example of physics-inspired food… View all photos
Rika Takahashi | 11 December 2014Japanese businesspeople and scientists gathered in Tokyo last week to attend the general meeting of the Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology, which is now a general incorporated association. At this occasion, three special lectures were given Lyn Evans, Hitoshi Murayama and Sachio Komamiya from the Linear Collider Collaboration and Board. The Japanese science community will closely collaborate with the association in the future towards the realisation of the ILC.
