Evolving the ILC baseline

| 14 January 2010 Over the past year, the ILC project managers have led a focussed effort to assess the ILC baseline configuration that is documented in the Reference Design Report (RDR) and as a result have developed a set of proposed baseline changes that are aimed at reducing costs and improve the technical design.

Reflections on the New Year

| 7 January 2010 As we enter the New Year, it is a good time to review and reflect on our accomplishments during 2009, as well as the present status and prospects for the ILC. I wish I could boldly state that we have made big strides towards making the ILC a reality over the past year, but in reality it was a mixed year. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Strawman Baseline 2009 Report preparations and the new ILC Cost Estimating Tool

| 17 December 2009 We are currently preparing the SB2009 proposal with the goals of reducing the overall cost, optimising the facilities, and improving the performance of the accelerator for the next ILC baseline. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

The ILC Project Advisory Committee considers proposed ILC baseline revisions

| 10 December 2009 In recent months the project managers have presented a "strawman" baseline (SB2009) to the broader ILC community at a workshop in Albuquerque and to the International Linear Collider Steering Committee's Project Advisory Committee (ILCSC PAC) at a review in Pohang, Korea last November. We have now received the report of the PAC review and I discuss some highlights of that review here. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

“Open Sesame”

| 3 December 2009 The Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science & Applications in the Middle East (i.e. SESAME) is a scientific collaboration of countries in the region, who have joined together to develop a major international research center. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

What drives the development of technology

| 25 November 2009 (...) Taking all ILC cavity tests into account, a globally-based pattern of achievement and success emerges, giving confidence that we will meet or even exceed the forward looking-goal we set for ourselves at Snowmass in 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge

| 19 November 2009 (...) At the American Linear Collider Physics Group workshop at Albuquerque (ALCPG09), we had a very informative presentation by Stuart Henderson of Oak Ridge on "The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) Linac: Performance and Operational Experience." -- By Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Rethinking LHC-ILC connections

| 12 November 2009 The American Linear Collider Physics Group (ALCPG) workshop held in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 29 September to 3 October was one of our large ILC meetings that we hold twice a year... [P]erhaps the most important contribution was a talk given by Michael Peskin, SLAC, with the intriguing title, "Rethinking the LHC - ILC Connection." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Report on the CLIC workshop

| 5 November 2009 The September ALCPG and ILC meeting in Albuquerque, US, featured a plenary talk on the Compact Linear Collider Study CLIC by Jean-Pierre Delahaye, who gave a very nice description of the CLIC status and plans. (...) Today, I share a few personal observations from the workshop. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Accelerators everywhere – the ILC in context

| 29 October 2009 ...I am... [at] the "Accelerators for America's Future" meeting held in Washington, D.C. and sponsored by the US Department of Energy. The meeting is intended to raise the profile and set the strategy for the future of accelerator physics in the US. The morning's talks have been in turn illuminating, amusing, and infuriating.
