Black December

| 31 January 2008 It looks as if last month will be classified as "Black December" as far as the ILC is concerned. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Common fund

| 24 January 2008 ... I am pleased to report today that the GDE common fund for 2008 has been approved at FALC and will be fully funded internationally, including by the U.S. and U.K. and pending working out some details regarding individual contributions. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Collective wisdom

| 17 January 2008 ...I said that we hoped to come up with a revised plan for the next phase of our ILC R&D programme, and I report today on our conclusions and consensus as to how we propose to redefine our plans and goals in response to the new budget constraints.

Happy new (Gregorian) year 2008!

| 10 January 2008 As our year ends and we enter a new one, it is common practice to reflect on the past and dream of or plan the future. For the ILC, the year 2007 was a busy year. Some might say it was hectic, some would call it stressful or even a disaster, but certainly a lot happened. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Omnibus is ominous

| 20 December 2007 Our plan this week was to make this issue of ILC NewsLine a thematic one, highlighting progress on Superconducting Radiofrequency R&D, the central technology for the International Linear Collider. It would have made a very nice final edition for this calendar year, but unfortunately new events that imperil the future course of the ILC must be addressed instead.

A more integrated approach toward an energy frontier lepton collider

| 13 December 2007 All of particle physics is poised for the impending first explorations of the trillion-electronvolt (TeV) energy scale at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. Within the next couple of years, the LHC will lead the way in opening up this new frontier for particle physics. The early results should help us determine what is required of a complementary lepton collider, in order to best address the new physics. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

China prepares for a new generation of tau-charm physics

| 6 December 2007 The BEBC accelerator and BES detector facility are the centerpieces of the Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing. These ambitious state-of-the-art facilities act as the follow-on to the pioneering studies at SPEAR of tau and charm physics. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

New year – new office

| 29 November 2007 If you talk about next year, devils will laugh at you. This is a Japanese saying that corresponds to the English saying, "Don't count your chickens before they're hatched." I do not want to be laughed at by the devil, but I would like to write about Building 2 at KEK. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

The importance of carefully planned infrastructure

| 21 November 2007 Last week, I gave a colloquium about the ILC at CERN. This is a very interesting time to be at CERN. There is a buzz in the air and an impressive amount of intense activity, as final preparations are underway for the LHC start-up, scheduled for next summer. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Chinese participation in ILC

| 15 November 2007 Beijing is a place to mark important ILC milestones. In 2004, the International Committee on Future Accelerators (ICFA) announced the decision to base the ILC acceleration technology on superconducting radiofrequency technology. In February 2007, we released the draft Global Design Effort Reference Design Report (RDR) for the ILC. This past week, in what I anticipate will mark an equally important milestone for the ILC, many of us attended the CCAST ILC Accelerator Workshop and first Asia ILC R&D Seminar under the JSPS Core-University Program.
