The convergence of astrophysics and particle physics

| 21 October 2010 [...] The scope of particle physics has grown in recent years to include what we commonly call particle astrophysics, where some of the most important particle physics questions are also of high importance for astrophysics. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Novosibirsk revisited: integrating former weapons scientists

| 14 October 2010 [...] The ISTC was established by international agreement in November 1992 as a nonproliferation programme. The mandate is to help develop alternative professional careers for the scientists, engineers and technicians from the former Soviet Union who used to develop weapons. High-energy physics has been both a beneficiary and a partner in this programme. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,


| 7 October 2010 I had the interesting experience recently of spending four days at a meeting in Novosibirsk, Russia... at the Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics (BINP), a famous laboratory credited with many of the innovations in modern particle accelerators.

The ILC in a mountainous region

| 30 September 2010 There is an encouraging possibility that Japan will bid to host the ILC. Earlier this month, at the autumn meeting of the Physical Society of Japan held at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, representatives of the Japanese ILC community announced two potential ILC sites.

Beyond the Technical Design Report

| 23 September 2010 The baseline configuration for the TDR is being decided over the coming months and we are on track to complete and document the technical design by the end of 2012. ... What will happen then? Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

IWLC2010: International Workshop on Linear Colliders 2010

| 16 September 2010 This week I want to preview the coming ECFA-CLIC-ILC joint meeting that will be held from 18 October through 22 October 2010 at CERN and the International Conference Centre Geneva, Switzerland. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Developing an ILC Project Implementation Plan

| 9 September 2010 [...] Another important step is to develop a Project Implementation Plan (PIP) as a way to outline the options, models and plans for realising the ILC as a project. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

ILC R&D plan updated

| 2 September 2010 [...] For the technical part, especially with the limited resources we have available, we have defined a prioritised R&D programme, and a design effort focused on cost, performance and risk optimisation. This programme is main subject matter of the newly released R&D Plan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Discussing change at the Baseline Assessment Workshops

| 26 August 2010 In cooperation with the KEK Linear Collider Office, the ILC GDE Project Managers are organising the first in a series of Baseline Assessment Workshops. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

ICHEP addresses the future of high-energy physics

| 19 August 2010 [...] Whatever new large projects will be in our future, we are building a strategy and timing for decisions, where the scientific results and imperatives can determine our choices. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
