High Energy Physics in Philadelphia – ICHEP 08

| 4 September 2008 The International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP), once affectionately called the Rochester Conference, is considered central in our field. It takes place every second year. This year the meeting was held at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Uniting Asian collaboration

New hope for Europe

| 31 July 2008 My last Director's Corner in January summarised the situation in Europe as far as it could be discerned through the still-settling dust after "Black December". Six months later, it is appropriate and useful to revisit the new landscape in Europe. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

A personal tribute to Yoji Totsuka

| 17 July 2008 High-energy physics lost a giant in our field - and I lost a very good personal friend - when Yoji Totsuka, the former Director General of KEK, died of cancer at the age of 66 last week. I would like to pay special tribute to a great scientist and wonderful human being. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

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: , , , , ,
