Powering detector developments

| 22 September 2016 There’s a fitting phrase for the funding landscape of international high-energy physics projects: “It’s complicated.” Hitoshi Yamamoto, Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration, describes the various sources of financial support, especially for developing future detectors, and where all of them stand. His advice: use all the opportunities there are. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

After many a summer – and corner…

| 8 September 2016 Among the LCC collaboration changes that will be put in place as of January 2017 will be the abolition of the Regional Directors. In this week’s corner, Brian Foster, soon-to-be former-European Director, explains what he has learned in 14 years of dedication towards managing the linear collider project, and gives some advice for the future.

Changes in LCC and in the US regarding ILC

| 11 August 2016 The mandate of the current LCC structure ends at the end of 2016 and ICFA has now put a revised structure in place. There has also been a change in the way the US supports ILC activities. Harry Weerts, current regional director for the Americas, describes these changes and how they will affect ILC activities.

Hiroshima

| 22 July 2016 Remembering a visit of Barack Obama to Hiroshima, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration Hitoshi Murayama explains how particle physics can also help build a safe and peaceful world. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Brexit and Linear Colliders

| 7 July 2016 The British voted to leave the European Union. What does that mean for science? Phil Burrows, professor at Oxford University and acting Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration discusses the likely effects the “Brexit” will have for linear collider projects.

One step further with the ILC Human Resource Working Group activities at MEXT, Japan

| 23 June 2016 The Japanese ministry of education, culture, sports, science and technology MEXT has been investigating the ILC project and the feasibility for it to be hosted in Japan with three working group activities on “Particle and Nuclear Physics” and “Technical Design Report validation” since JFY2014 and “Human Resource ensuring and training” since JFY2015, under the supervision of the ILC Advisory Panel coordinated by MEXT.

Rethinking the linear collider in view of the bump

| 9 June 2016 The bump at 750 GeV in the LHC data holds the particle physics community in its grip. Reporting from last week’s ECFA Linear Collider Workshop in Spain, LCC director Lyn Evans says that participants discussed what this could mean for the ILC and its configuration. He also summarises the status discussions and keeps fingers crossed for new developments in superconducting RF technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Coming up: the ECFA Linear Collider Workshop

| 26 May 2016 The ILC’s central region – the bits of accelerator and other technology around the point where particles will collide – will get special attention at the upcoming ECFA Linear Collider Workshop in Santander, Spain. But changes to the design, civil engineering issues and detector topics also feature on the agenda. ILC Director Mike Harrison looks forward to seeing his colleagues face to face, rather than by video. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

What Is Basic Science Good For?

| 12 May 2016 Humans are curious creatures, always trying to make sense of the world around them. Basic science pushed the humankind forward and will continue to do with projects like the LHC and the ILC. Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration and enthusiastic public lecturer explains why. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Looking into the crystal ball

| 28 April 2016 The Linear Collider Collaboration comes to the end of its mandate at the end of this year. A working group made up of lab directors from Europe, the US and Japan is looking at options for a new management structure, and in his corner, European Regional Director Brian Foster gives some (unsolicited) advice.
