An official change of name

| 11 June 2009 ... A new, more descriptive name for the process we are undertaking, Accelerator Design and Integration, became official at the first working meeting towards defining a new ILC baseline held at DESY from 28 to 29 May. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The value of being reviewed

| 4 June 2009 The AAP is an "inside" panel that is augmented by some outside experts and has the mandate of continually monitoring, reviewing and giving me advice on the technical aspects of our work. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

What’s in a word?

| 28 May 2009 During the day-to-day activities of Global Design Effort Project Management, I find myself using certain nouns more frequently than others. Recently, the word review has featured prominently in our vocabulary. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Learning accelerator science

| 21 May 2009 Today I want to encourage young researchers interested in becoming accelerator scientists to consider applying to participate in our "Fourth International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Progress on ILC machine-detector interfaces through the detector LOI process

| 14 May 2009 Compared to most accelerators, the ILC will have a much more intimate and complex set of interfaces between the machine and the detectors (MDI). Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Garbincius joins GDE Executive Committee

| 7 May 2009 (...) The heart of the GDE organisation and central 'engine' is an Executive Committee (EC) that works very closely with me on carrying out all important policy, organisational and operational matters. Today, I am pleased to announce that Peter Garbincius of Fermilab has joined the EC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

New cavity production facility for future industrialisation

| 30 April 2009 (...) One of the most important plans for the ILC project is to build a new superconducting radiofrequency (rf) cavity production facility on KEK premises, aiming to gain experiences for industrialisation and future mass-production. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

FLASH – ILC-like beam tests at DESY

| 23 April 2009 Before we can develop our own test systems that use ILC modules, we are making a series of important tests using the FLASH free-electron laser linac at DESY. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Gran Sasso National Laboratory survives the Italian earthquake

| 16 April 2009 Last week a major earthquake struck Italy about 10 kilometres from the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (Gran Sasso National Laboratory). The inhabitants of the city of L'Aquila nearby the laboratory suffered numerous injuries and loss of lives, as well as extensive damage to buildings, homes and historic structures. (...) The Gran Sasso Laboratory, the most ambitious deep underground research facility in the world, suffered no significant damage, and for that we can be thankful.

Technological Benefits from ILC R&D

| 9 April 2009 We are pursuing a very ambitious R&D programme in order to develop the technologies that will be required to build the International Linear Collider. Recognising that important technological benefits are resulting from our ILC R&D programme, the Funding Agencies for Large Colliders, a group composed of representatives of national science funding agencies worldwide, commissioned a study.
