The deadline for the 2016 CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics, which will take place in Skeikampen (near Lillehammer, Norway) from 15 to 28 June, has been extended to 19 February.
The School is targeted at students in experimental high-energy particle physics who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs, although candidates at an earlier or later stage in their studies may be considered. Sponsorship may be available for a few students from developing countries.
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.
