Towards the realization of the International Linear Collider, an update

| 31 May 2018 The 2018 Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW2018) is being held in Fukuoka, Japan from 28 May to 1 June. At the meeting a statement was unanimously endorsed stressing the scientific importance of the ILC and urging the Japanese government to declare interest in hosting the project. A decision is now urgent because the European Strategy Group, which supported European participation in the ILC in the last update in 2013, needs input by the end of 2018 if the Project is to be integrated into their report. The Fukuoka declaration follows. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The ILC at 250 GeV: an overview of options

| 5 April 2018 Shinichiro Michizono, Associate Director for the ILC in the Linear Collider Collaboration, takes a look at the proposed 250-GeV ILC from an accelerator expert’s point of view. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

ILC250 Higgs factory: ready for launch!

| 1 March 2018 The ILC with a collision energy of 250 GeV in its initial stage will be a proper Higgs factory, producing half a million nearly background-free Higgs particles over the course of a decade for true model-independent Higgs studies, as well as other SM tests and searches for other, new particles. "Bring them on," says Jim Brau, Associate Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration. "We are ready." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Preparing for the update

| 1 February 2018 With input to the update of the European Strategy for Particle Phyics due by the end of the year, the linear collider community has its goals clearly defined: progress on the political level and on technology. Steinar Stapnes gives an overview. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

We are back!

| 14 December 2017 A lot has happened since our last issue of NewsLine, most notably the ICFA-supported option of a 250-GeV ILC, and a Nobel Prize for Barry Barish. Lyn Evans reports on the statement issued by ICFA and what a 250-GeV ILC would mean for the project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

It’s all about respect

| 16 February 2017 Our particle physics community is a model of peaceful collaboration, independent of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. In today’s world, where gender discrimination and racism are becoming more and more prevalent, we should pride ourselves on our community’s role model status. Let's make sure that our own high standards do not slip. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Proudly presenting: the new LCC management

| 8 December 2016 As many of you will have heard by now, the Linear Collider Collaboration was given another three-year mandate by the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA). It took the opportunity to streamline management a little, so from January we will run the collaboration in a smaller and slightly changed team. Let me introduce the new and old management to you.

CLIC – optimising the initial 380-GeV stage

| 23 November 2016 In 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Strasbourg steers ILC towards ESRFI roadmap

| 3 November 2016 Reporting from the French city of Strasbourg, Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto says that he was encouraged by a dedicated forum about the ILC, the ESFRI roadmap and next steps held with political and science officials this Monday. It was part of the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference that continues until Sunday 6 November. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Forming a new plan for R&D

| 20 October 2016 First bilateral discussions between the Japanese and US administrations have led to a new emphasis in accelerator R&D for the linear collider that is both good and bad, Lyn Evans says. More bilateral discussions between Japan and European and Asian countries will follow. In the meantime, the community will lay down plans for SCRF research for the next two to three years during a dedicated workshop-in-a-workshop in December. Evans, current Director of the Linear Collider Community, hopes for great turnout. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,
