Japan's particle physics research centre KEK will have its Open House on 6 September. Two ILC test facilities, ATF and STF, will have guided tours. Check out the informative and fun exhibits at the Kenkyu-honkan building, meet the Higgs particle in person. Everybody who visited and collect stamps of two ILC related facilities and an exhibit can get one of 18 particle button. It's a must if you're in Japan! For more information have a look at the open house website (in Japanese). …Read more
Sakue Yamada | 20 January 2011First of all a Happy New Year to all readers! We have now come over the middle point of the Letters-of-Intent (LOIs) process to produce a detailed baseline design (DBD) of the ILC detectors. The first half was very productive. Starting from the call for LOIs and establishing the advisory scheme, the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG), we came through the validation, which included both hard work for preparation by many people and elaborated examination by IDAG. Much work on detector R&D and physics simulation is now being continued to be integrated into two detector systems by the two validated groups. While further efforts are needed towards the completion of DBD, it is timely to make an interim report now, and we are already working on it.
