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: , ,

The art of decision making: STF phase-2 cavity choice

| 1 May 2008 One of the more difficult problems in conducting large-scale science projects is the process of decision making. The ability to make good decisions in a timely way can be an enormous challenge and can differentiate good management from not-so-good management. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The value of science

| 24 April 2008 What is your science worth? A question I have recently heard raised during many over-coffee discussions. The question is of course rhetorical: none of us can really answer it. But the fact that it is being asked at all is part of a reaction to the GDE management's policy to make the cost of the project a central focus of the Technical Design Phase.

The GDE to meet in Russia

| 17 April 2008 The next general meeting for the GDE will be at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia. JINR is a large international laboratory with a long history in accelerator-related science. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Implementing “internal” reviews for the ILC Technical Design Phase

| 10 April 2008 Last week, the new Accelerator Advisory Panel (AAP) was introduced in NewsLine. This week, I follow up with a description of its role and why I believe it will improve the quality of our R&D and design efforts. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The ILC in Osaka

| 3 April 2008 Last week, the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Physical Society of Japan was held on the Kinki University campus in Osaka, where I participated in a special symposium dedicated to the International Linear Collider. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

The next step towards the ILC – building a truly global team

| 27 March 2008 It has been roughly a year since the completion of the Reference Design Report (RDR) and the creation of a project-oriented design effort. It is reasonable, therefore, to look broadly over our accomplishments and the direction in which we are heading. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,
