From CERN Courier: Council solicits opinion to chart the future of European particle physics

2 February 2012 During its December meetings, CERN Council announced that an Open Symposium will be held in Cracow on 10–13 September 2012 for the purpose of updating the European Strategy for Particle Physics. Council adopted Europe’s current strategy for the field in July 2006 with an understanding that it be brought up to date at appropriate intervals of typically five years. The Open Symposium is part of a process designed to get the maximum input from the particle-physics community, as well as from other stakeholders both inside and outside Europe, as Europe’s strategy forms part of a global whole.

China awards Shin-ichi Kurokawa for his international scientific cooperation

| 2 February 2012 Shin-ichi Kurokawa, professor emeritus of KEK, has been awarded the 2011 award for International Scientific Cooperation by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since the eighties, Kurokawa has been actively promoting academic cooperation and exchanges in science and technology between Japan and China, and later expanded it to Asian-wide collaborative research. He also served as chair of the Asian Committee for Future Accelerators and of the ILC Steering Committee. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

The capability for producing niobium sheets

| 26 January 2012 Japanese company Tokyo Denkai is boosting high-purity niobium production and processing with some new equipment and a better-outfitted shop. Should the ILC be built, the company will be able to handle the large order of niobium needed for accelerator cavities. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

Pushing technology, expanding industry

| 12 January 2012 Canada-based PAVAC Industries recently set up a second shop in Fermilab’s backyard. Their work in superconducting cavities pushes their technological capabilities, enabling them to expand into other accelerator applications such as flue gas treatment for coal plants.

From iSGTW: New accelerators, now just a CLIC away

1 December 2011 The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) team at CERN are investigating the potential of a new kind of particle accelerator, and to help them they are simulating their designs using grid resources, such the UK computing grid for particle physics, GridPP. They build a customised version of the DIRAC system, called ILCDirac, a grid environment for both CLIC and similar experiments which is aimed at benefitting the entire linear collider community.

Hungry for science

| 3 November 2011 Last Saturday’s Open Day and Science Night at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, attracted more than 13 000 visitors. The lab presented its many fields of research, including the ILC, in a tent outside the entrance to the HERA accelerator tunnel. ILC detector developers and accelerator experts explained what the project is all about. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

Proposing a fishcake shape

| 27 October 2011 Kamaboko is a type of Japanese fishcake with a distinctive loaf shape, usually served sliced thin with dipping sauce such as soy sauce and wasabi or as a topping for noodles. It is also the shape of the newly proposed ILC tunnel design for an Asian mountain site. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,
