ECFA Linear Collider Workshop: registration is open
The next ECFA Linear Collider Workshop which will be held in Santander (Spain) from 30 May to 5 June 2016. It continues the international workshops devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high-energy electron-positron linear colliders (ILC, CLIC). The workshop is co-hosted by ECFA and LCC and will consist of accelerator sessions, several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups as well as physics and plenary sessions.

Sakue Yamada | 21 November 2007It has been several weeks since I last wrote for ILC NewsLine, right after becoming the research director. Since then, I had many occasions to talk with more people. Each meeting or telephone conversation was fresh to me. Through these discussions, I realised that some of the given charges are more urgent or fundamental, while the main task does not change.
Sakue Yamada | 4 October 2007The invitation to become the newly created research director for the International Linear Collider detector design was a surprise. I have always been aware that an electron positron collider is a powerful tool for particle physics. I started my career in high energy physics in this field, and I enjoyed many exciting years. I also participated in various discussions about a future linear collider project. But that was a long time ago. In recent years, I watched from the sidelines and followed the international efforts organised to design a linear collider under the leadership of the Global Design Effort. After discussions with the ILC Steering Committee and several key physicists, I learned how far things have developed and why they introduced a Research Director.
