Summer students reunite at test beam

| 26 November 2014 Four consecutive generations of former DESY summer students had an unplanned reunion at CERN recently: they were all around for the test of of the prototype of the analogue hadronic calorimeter for the ILC's ILD detector. They had all worked on this project as summer students. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , ,

Governor of Iwate prefecture visits CERN

Image: Kenichi Yoshida | 13 November 2014 Takuya Tasso, Governor of Iwate Prefecture in Japan, visited CERN on 10 November. He wanted to see CERN's activities as a laboratory at the frontier of particle physics and its contribution to world-wide science and education, as well as learn about its social impact.

Happy birthday CERN!

Image: CERN | 2 October 2014 Sixty years and nowhere near retirement age: CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, celebrated its birthday this Monday with official delegations from 35 countries and many other invited guests. CERN is one of the pillars of linear collider R&D for both accelerators and detectors, so the Linear Collider Collaboration sends its congratulations and hopes that the next 60 years will be as productive, exciting and groundbreaking as the first.

Linear collider scientists gather in Japan

Images: KEK and Rika Takahashi | 4 September 2014 It's meeting season in North Japan: a series of workshops held in Ichinoseki as well as in Tokyo brings together linear-collider scientists from all sorts of backgrounds: polarisation, particle sources, detector design, physics studies, and, coming up, machine-detector interface and civil engineering.

Follow ICHEP remotely

3 July 2014 "The portrait of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson we have today is still a very rough sketch," says Juan Fuster in the ICHEP newsletter published today. The 37th International Conference on High-Energy Phyiscs ICHEP started this week in Valencia, Spain. Follow what's being discussed by checking the schedule or watch the webcast on Saturday 5 July. The first newsletter is available here.

Forum at the Terascale

1 May 2014 This week, the German LC Forum took place at the University of Bonn. The LC Forum was initiated by the Helmholtz Alliance "Physics at the Terascale“ to provide a regular discussion platform for all aspects of linear colliders – accelerator, detectors, physics. The meeting was held in the Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics and yielded lively discussion, also in preparation of the American Linear Collider Workshop. Among the focus topics were for example beam polarisation, characterisation of dark matter particles at the ILC, and recent results on LC detector R&D. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

Ichinoseki-eki: get on board the ILC train!

Image: Ichinoseki city | 17 April 2014 If you ever come to the Kitakami region and visit the ILC candidate site in Japan, you may well stop or change over at Ichinoseki station (Ichinoseki-eki). Since a few weeks, local people and the visitors can view an ILC booth in the station, providing information about the ILC project and candidate site. Read more...

Support around the Kitakami site

6 February 2014 The Kitakami region in the north of Japan in Iwate prefecture is a potential site for the ILC in Japan, as recommended by the ILC site evaluation committee of Japan on 23 August 2013. And the region is clearly proud of this recommendation. The towns that would be the neighbours of the ILC if it was built there boast banners on official buildings and billboards along the roads, local shops have small banners on their tills, hotel clerks wear fan buttons and taxis sport bumper stickers – all in support of the ILC. Pictured are an advertising column outside Ichinoseki station and a banner at Mizusawa-Esashi station in the city Oshu. Read more about the field trip of the communications team to the Kitakami site in upcoming issues of LC NewsLine. View other photos Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

Senior vice-minister of science of Japan visits CERN

Image: CERN | 23 January 2014 One hundred metres under Swiss roads and fields, Yoshitaka Sakurada, Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, was pleased to discover the Japanese flag proudly displayed on an inner triplet magnet, one of the Japanese contributions to the Large Hadron Collider LHC at CERN. Guided in the LHC by LCC Director Lyn Evans and Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto, Sakurada and his team visited the tunnel and the ATLAS experiment, two examples of how international collaborations can achieve great things for science.
