ILC R&D plan updated

| 5 March 2009 We characterise the present period of the Global Design Effort activities as a four-year programme to prepare ourselves to be ready to propose a well conceived ILC construction project to collaborating governments by around 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Trains, planes and automobiles – the life of a regional director

| 26 February 2009 Although 2009 is not yet two months old, I seem to have already fitted in enough trips to fill a year - but such is the life of an ILC Director. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

TILC09 will have some special features

| 19 February 2009 TILC09 will be held in Tsukuba, Japan, from 17 to 21 April 2009: We will once again share a venue for the Global Design Effort meeting with an ILC physics and detector workshop. These joint meetings help bring us all together as a single community. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Involving Spain in the ILC R&D programme

| 12 February 2009 We had a nearly two-day meeting with the Spanish particle physics groups to explore collaborations for the ILC last month. (...) These meetings gave us a much better understanding of the capabilities and ambitions of the Spanish groups and gave them a better picture of the opportunities in ILC R&D and design work. We expect to continue these productive discussions, leading up to increased Spanish involvement in the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Plug compatibility: rationale and technical aspects addressed

| 15 January 2009 An interesting and challenging concept that has emerged in developing the ILC's technical design is that of plug compatibility for the superconducting radio frequency accelerating systems. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

A New Year

| 8 January 2009 (...) I am happy to report that we are starting this year in a much more stable state and with a solid and realistic R&D plan that we believe we can accomplish. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:
