LC NewsLine is taking a winter break. Happy holidays to our readers! We will be migrating the website and will be back in a couple of weeks.
Joint Universities Accelerator School: register now
Registration for the 2017 session of the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) is open to all staff, fellows and post-graduate students wishing to further their knowledge in the field. For more information please visit the website.
European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics
The next edition of the European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics (ESIPAP) will be held from 23 January to 17 March 2017. Registrations for the 2017 session of ESIPAP are open here.
Steinar Stapnes | 23 November 2016In August this year, the CLIC collaboration published an updated baseline-staging scenario that places emphasis on an optimised first-(and lower-) energy stage that can be extended to higher energies in further stages.

Steinar Stapnes | 23 July 2015As the summer conferences are kicking off, providing more and more complete LHC 8 TeV results and the very first glimpses of 13 TeV data, it is also time to start thinking about the autumn linear collider programme. The LCWS15 and the International Linear Collider School will be held in Whistler, BC, Canada.

Steinar Stapnes | 2 April 2015The annual CLIC workshop took place at CERN in January. The well attended meeting covered accelerator, detector and physics studies and highlighted a year of interesting results for CLIC, Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains.
Steinar Stapnes | 6 March 2014The yearly CLIC collaboration meeting took place last month at CERN, welcoming more than 300 physicists from all over the world. After many strategy processes and deliberations, the discussions and presentations were refreshingly focused on the physics, technologies and scientific challenges for the next phase of the project. CLIC’s Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study reports.

Steinar Stapnes | 7 November 2013As the worldwide linear collider community comes together during the LCWS 2013 meeting in Tokyo next week, the CLIC collaboration has already started to plan their next major event, the 2014 CLIC workshop at CERN from 3 to 7 February. Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study, reports.

Steinar Stapnes | 22 August 2013It has been another summer with discussions about future strategies for international particle physics. After work on the European Strategy last summer, the US strategy is on the table this summer. For the linear collider work the strategy processes have been positive, reports Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for CLIC in the Linear Collider Collaboration. Researchers are closely following decisions being made in Japan.

Steinar Stapnes | 6 December 2012It is reporting season: the ILC community is producing the Technical Design Report that also includes the Detector Baseline Design reports, and the CLIC collaboration with associated Detector and Physics studies group have been hard at work completing the CLIC Conceptual Design Report (CDR). The documentation probably surpasses by a large amount - in scope, details and volume - what is normally called a CDR for a project, but then again, there is a lot of work to report on.
