About Steinar Stapnes

Steinar Stapnes is Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration.

Two Linear Collider events in Whistler, Canada this autumn

| 23 July 2015 As 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The CLIC workshop: a summary of results

| 2 April 2015 The 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.

A successful Linear Collider workshop in Belgrade – and planning the main LC workshops in 2015

| 26 November 2014 After a successful linear collider workshop last month, which saw progress in site-specific studies for the ILC and detector optimisation for both ILC and CLIC detectors (and more), Steinar Stapnes is looking ahead to next year's workshops in Japan and Canada.

Challenges and goals for the LCWS14 in Belgrade 6-10 October

| 3 July 2014 Summer conferences are only just starting, but Steinar Stapnes, director for CLIC in the LCC, looks ahead to the linear collider autumn conference and its specific challenges for ILC as well as for CLIC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The CLIC workshop 2014

| 6 March 2014 The 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The CLIC 2014 workshop at CERN

| 7 November 2013 As 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Strategy for linear colliders

| 22 August 2013 It 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Strategies and realities

| 16 May 2013 The European Strategy for Particle Physics is expected to be adopted by the CERN Council end May. The physics potential of future linear colliders is well recognised in the Strategy statements. As global projects have cross-regional consequences, this strategy could have a wide impact in and beyond Europe. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

CLIC reaches a milestone

| 6 December 2012 It 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.

December events and challenges ahead

| 26 January 2012 There's a lot to be optimistic and excited about in 2012. CERN’s Large Hadron Collider results should provide guidance towards a linear collider implementation and the linear collider community is technically well prepared. The ILC technology is well developed and the Technical Design Report is under way. The CLIC technology is also moving rapidly forward: the physics and detectors volume of the Conceptual Design Report was completed just last December. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,
