Whats in a Schedule

| 8 March 2007 Just before I presented at HEPAP, Dr. Raymond Orbach, Under Secretary for Science at the DOE, gave a presentation where he hypothesised a timescale for completion of the ILC of "the mid-2020s, if not later." Today I discuss the meaning and significance of that statement, as well as give my own views of what will determine the schedule of the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

ILC Baseline Alternative: The Marx Modulator

| 1 March 2007 The release of the ILC Reference Design was a very important milestone. Yet, we have emphasised that it is really a snapshot of the ILC design. -- By Barry Barish & Ray Larsen Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The Road to the ILC: Convincing our Colleagues

| 22 February 2007 Now that we have released our draft Reference Design Report for the ILC, our short-term focus is on completing and finalising the RDR. This will involve completing some unfinished work, undergoing international reviews and then revising and finalising the reference design and costing. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The International Linear Collider: Gateway to the Quantum Universe

| 15 February 2007 In addition to the technical reports released last week in Beijing that describe the reference design for the ILC, we also published in draft form a very attractive and informative companion document... Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Report from Beijing: The ILC Reference Design Report

| 8 February 2007 The GDEs first major goal was to define the basic parameters and layout for the ILC and document them in a Baseline Configuration Document (BCD). We achieved this at the first GDE meeting held at INFN, Frascati, Italy, in December 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Evolving ILC Design: Push-Pull Detector Arrangement

| 1 February 2007 The full realization of the scientific potential of the ILC argues for the construction and operation of two complementary detectors by two international collaborations. (This statement comes from a chapter of the soon to be released ILC Detector Concept Report (DCR)) Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The Machine Advisory Committee Reviews the ILC Reference Design

| 25 January 2007 Our steady march toward completion and release of the ILC Reference Design Report (RDR) continued into the New Year with a Machine Advisory Committee review on 10-12 January. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

EuroTeV and MAC meeting at Daresbury

| 18 January 2007 The holiday period has been a busy time for the GDE. Shortly before Christmas many of us gathered at SLAC to have a first look at the RDR and its costings with some distinguished external reviewers. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Japan HEP Community Promotes a Future Strategy for Particle Physics

| 11 January 2007 Mitsuaki Nozaki, GDE Asian Regional Director, discussed the community-wide consensus on priorities for the future programme in high energy physics in Japan in the Directors Corner of 22 November. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Cost Estimating the ILC Reference Design

| 4 January 2007 One of the most important goals of the ILC Reference Design is to understand enough about costs to provide a reliable indication of the projects scale and as importantly, to provide information and tools that will help guide the engineering design phase.
