Meeting the President of India

| 9 March 2006 One reason for our holding a GDE meeting in India is to provide an opportunity to explore the possibility of Indian participation in both the GDE and ILC R&D program. These discussions will hopefully be a first step toward an eventual full partnership for India on the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

InDiCo – Integrated Digital Conferencing

| 19 January 2006 One of the biggest challenges for our dispersed GDE effort is communications. This was apparent from the beginning and, as a result, I have continually emphasized the need for us to employ the most advanced electronic communications and web tools.
