Directorate on the road

| 22 January 2015 The LCC Directorate is constantly reinforcing its bridges, especially with our Japanese colleagues. At this critical time before the decision whether Japan will offer to host the ILC is taken, they travelled to the designated site to inspect port, roads and discuss with local and national authorities, reports LCC Director Lyn Evans. If the ILC gets built, some real bridges will have to be reinforced so that heavy high-tech can travel from the port to the site. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

A year with the ILC

| 8 January 2015 For the ILC, 2014 was a year of progress in many areas, but the most important activities were centred in Japan, where Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has started deliberations to evaluate the physics justification as well as the scope and cost of the project. The past year also featured nice results from the ATF2 facility in Japan and the XFEL in Europe. Mike Harrison, associate director for the International Linear Collider in the Linear Collider Collaboration, didn’t avoid the temptation to look back before looking ahead to 2015.

Return to Dubna

| 11 December 2014 Russia's Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in is an international organisation with a long and wide scientific programme, embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration visited the lab for the third time and met with the directorate, addressing options for exploring Russian engagement in possible future ILC construction, for which the lab has a lively interest.

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.

The 2014 ICFA seminar in Beijing

| 13 November 2014 The recent ICFA seminar addressed many topics and chartered the future physics landscape to fine and, if in the further future, less fine detail, says Harry Weerts, Americas Regional Director for the Linear Collider Collaboration. But he thinks one important thing is lacking: a mechanism on how to achieve consensus on what constitutes the global programme for particle physics in the future.

Voice your dream for the ILC!

| 30 October 2014 The ILC may be the first science project in the world that gets approval by video message. But only if there are enough of them, says LCC Director Lyn Evans. Everybody is invited to share his and her enthusiasm for the project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Science for Peace

| 16 October 2014 Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration and Director of the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe will give a keynote speech at an event about "Science for Peace and Development" next week at UN headquarters in New York. This event takes place in the framework of CERN 60th anniversary, and his fellow speakers include UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Nobel Laureates Kofi Annan and Carlo Rubbia and CERN DG Rolf Heuer. Follow the event live by webcast. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Efforts for the ILC to be matured “from Design to Reality”

| 2 October 2014 Things continue to evolve in the ILC design. In order to make sure that changes and optimisations formally make it into the new design, a change management board has been put into place, recounts Akira Yamamoto. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

ILC: What’s happening in Japan

| 18 September 2014 With a technical design well in place and R&D continuing on accelerator and detectors, the community is waiting for the next big milestone to occur towards the realisation of the ILC. Apart from crucial next results from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, all eyes are on the potential ILC host Japan. So what’s happening in Japan?

In preparation for LCWS 14

| 4 September 2014 The next big linear collider meeting, LWS14, will take place in Serbia next month. Mike Harrison, Associate Director for the International Linear Collider, explains how this gathering will be key for the ILC project to discuss cross-cutting issues between the accelerator and detector communities and the workshop will emphasise on site-specific design. It should provide the forum to allow a final review by all the interested parties before adopting the new design into the ILC baseline. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,
