Determining the cost of the ILC detectors

| 19 May 2011 Costing the two ILC detectors more precisely is one of the important activities for the ongoing ILC detector design work, and balancing detector cost and performance depends on the strategy of the detector groups. To learn whether there are differences among them, the groups undertake detailed coordination of their costing methodologies. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

“Crazy” years await us – or maybe not

| 21 April 2011 Though the road ahead is long, the ILC collaboration has made considerable strides designing the machine and its two detectors, contributing to the advancement of other fields and bringing together a global community. Now we must keep up the energy for the remaining stretch as we fulfil our mandate to deliver its technical design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,

Planning the Detailed Baseline Design Report

| 24 March 2011 The scientists that make up the physics and detector side of the ILC community come together to create the Detailed Baseline Detector Report, a document that reflects the newest developments and requirements in detector R&D. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

ILC community meets in Oregon for ALCPG11

| 17 February 2011 On the eve of the 2011 ILC Americas regional meeting meeting, Jim Brau reports on the progress which has been achieved in the ILC detector and physics field since the last meeting in 2009. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

New regional contact from Europe

| 20 January 2011 First 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. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

SiD moving forward

| 16 December 2010 The SiD (Silicon Detector) Collaboration met in a workshop at the University of Oregon in Eugene from 15-17 November to review progress, discuss plans, and further organise its effort for the Detailed Baseline Design (DBD) report due at the end of 2012. -- Jim Brau and Andy White for SiD Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

ILC and Super KEKB

| 18 November 2010 Even though additional funds are needed to complete the Super KEKB upgrade, th[e MEXT funding appropriation] signaled an essential go-ahead for the project, clearing the way for the ILC. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,

White paper on Comprehensive Project Design Guidance

| 21 October 2010 Recently the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) published a white paper on the Comprehensive Project Design Guidance (CPDG), which describes the direction of the activity to promote ILC in its post-technical design phase beyond 2012. -- Sakue Yamada Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

A linear collider workshop at CERN

| 16 September 2010 The linear collider community will meet at CERN from 18 October to 22 October. This workshop deals with all aspects of our future project Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

What will happen after the DBD

| 19 August 2010 Right now, the two detector groups are striving to update their detector concepts towards the detailed baseline design (DBD) aimed to be completed in 2012. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,
