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.
Hitoshi Yamamoto | 18 October 2012In order for an international project like the ILC to succeed, being able to construct the accelerator itself is not enough. To make the future ILC city an attractive and comfortable place to come and stay for a prolonged period, it is also critical that the site is geologically sound and that the living conditions of the staff and their families are agreeable.

Sakue Yamada | 5 July 2012We in the ILC Research Directorate are thrilled with the announcement from CERN this week that a Higgs-like particle has been discovered. The Higgs particle has been a target of our experiments for over decades, and the affirming news from LHC finally means a great step forward. I wish to congratulate CERN and all physicists who contributed to this success.

Jim Brau | 28 June 2012The new Linear Collider Organisation is being planned with a united ILC and CLIC physics and detector effort. This is a natural step, but the devil is in the details. While there has been a lot of fruitful collaboration in the past, there also remain differences that must be considered.
