The deadline for the 2016 CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics, which will take place in Skeikampen (near Lillehammer, Norway) from 15 to 28 June, has been extended to 19 February.
The School is targeted at students in experimental high-energy particle physics who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs, although candidates at an earlier or later stage in their studies may be considered. Sponsorship may be available for a few students from developing countries.
Barry Barish | 15 April 2010One of the primary missions of the ILC Global Design Effort is to help in the training of the next generation of accelerator physicists. To achieve that end, we have been a sponsor and we supplied many of the lecturers at a series of schools that began four years ago. [...] This year's school will focus on subjects in accelerator physics related to TeV-scale linear colliders, including the ILC, CLIC and the muon collider. -- Barry Barish

Barry Barish | 8 April 2010This past week marked the beginning of a new era for particle physics with the much publicised achievement of establishing the first 7-TeV collisions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). [...] We should soon begin to have a glimpse of Terascale physics from searches for the origin of mass to looking for evidence of a new symmetry in nature that could even explain the dark matter. Even more intriguing is the real possibility for totally unexpected surprises that are awaiting us. We are looking to LHC science to establish what kind of lepton collider will be needed to best exploit the energy frontier in the longer term.

Nick Walker | 25 March 2010[...] As a truly global project, the ILC remains the dream of hundreds of physicists around the globe. Many of them will be joining me in Beijing for the workshop, to discuss the impressive technical progress we are making. -- Nick Walker

Barry Barish | 11 March 2010The most recent meeting of the Funding Agencies for Large Colliders (FALC) was held at the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai, India from 17 to 18 January. FALC reviewed the major high-energy programmes worldwide during this meeting, as well as hearing reports on the status and plans for the International Linear Collider.
