The proposed Russian ILC site

| 10 July 2008 One of the most difficult and tricky issues for the Global Design Effort in carrying out our design work is how to approach the siting issue for the ILC before proposals are actually solicited for hosting the machine. Conventional facilities are a major part of the project, accounting for almost one third of the total costs. Therefore, in order to bring as much reality to our reference design as possible, we asked for and studied three "sample sites," one from each region. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

The ILC-ECFA Workshop in Warsaw

| 3 July 2008 From 9 to 12 June, the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, Poland, together with the Institute of Nuclear Studies hosted a workshop under the mandate of the European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) to discuss the physics and detectors for a linear collider.

Integrating ideas at Dubna

| 26 June 2008 At the recent Conventional Facilities and Siting Workshop in Dubna, there were four focus groups: Shallow Site, Infrastructure, Siting and Accelerator Systems. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Hot off the press: Technical Design Phase ILC R&D plan

| 19 June 2008 The R&D plan outlines our strategy to advance the ILC design effort to the point where we will be ready to propose a robust construction project in a few years. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The P5 Report and its implications for the ILC

| 12 June 2008 On Thursday, 29 May, the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel held its spring meeting in Washington, DC. The entire meeting was devoted to the presentation and discussion of the anxiously awaited report "US Particle Physics: Scientific Opportunities: A Strategic Plan for the Next Ten Years," by the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel, or P5.

Critical electron cloud studies at Cornell

| 5 June 2008 Last week we reported on the beginning of our important experimental programme on electron cloud effects, using the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) accelerator at Cornell University. This is one of our highest-priority R&D goals during the ILC Technical Design Phase 1 (TDP-1) and is aimed at understanding the magnitude of the problem for the ILC positron damping rings and the effectiveness of our proposed mitigation techniques.

Establishing an Asian science communication network

| 29 May 2008 ... if we want to promote the International Linear Collider, we need to initiate much broader campaign for physics or basic science in general. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Common fund approved by FALC Resource Group

| 22 May 2008 The ILC Global Design Effort is made up primarily of in-kind R&D contributions done in the partner countries, mostly at the large laboratories that are developing the technologies and design towards a real ILC machine. Our primary mission in the GDE is to coordinate and guide this programme. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Globalising R&D

| 15 May 2008 The coordination of superconducting radiofrequency R&D is central to the Global Design Effort's mission of bringing the design for the ILC to the point we can make a robust proposal to our governments. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Third International Accelerator School

| 8 May 2008 Recruiting and training the next generation of accelerator physicists is crucial to the future of the field. Accelerator schools play a central role in introducing potential accelerator experts to the science and in providing advanced education. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
