LC NewsLine is taking a winter break. Happy holidays to our readers! We will be migrating the website and will be back in a couple of weeks.
Joint Universities Accelerator School: register now
Registration for the 2017 session of the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) is open to all staff, fellows and post-graduate students wishing to further their knowledge in the field. For more information please visit the website.
European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics
The next edition of the European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics (ESIPAP) will be held from 23 January to 17 March 2017. Registrations for the 2017 session of ESIPAP are open here.
Rika Takahashi | 3 November 2016Did you know that the ILC has already been built? Neatly nestled into the lush hills of the Kitakami region it produces collisions... of art and science. We're talking about a 15-metre mockup that's part of the biggest art event in Tokyo in one of the trendiest places in town. Watch it being made in the video.
Perrine Royole-Degieux | 3 March 2016You cannot possibly have missed that gravitational waves have recently been discovered by the LIGO-VIRGO scientific collaborations. But in case you missed the talk at CERN explaining it, you can watch it here. See also "A dream comes true" from the last issue of LC NewsLine, a personal view of the discovery by Barry Barish.

25 November 2015At the 9th International Accelerator School for Linear Collider, many young scientists joined the #mylinearcollider campaign – video messages from all over the world from people who wish to participate in the project. We have prepared a new playlist of messages from young scientists, #nextgeneration, on YouTube. Have a a look at what the next generation has to say!

11 June 2015Gerard 't Hooft and Steven Weinberg speak in favour of the expected precision results a linear collider would bring, joining the #mylinearcollider video campaign from their offices in the Netherlands and at the University of Texas. They point out the benefits the project would bring not only to the host, but to the world of science and humanity in general, and Weinberg advocates Japan as the host site for the project.

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 2 April 2015110 years ago, Albert Einstein published four historical papers... and a very famous equation.For this special birthday, Symmetry Magazine succeded to explain, in a very simple way, how E=mc2, an equation "used" everyday in particle accelerators, has radically changed our way of doing physics. Watch the animation and read also Symmetry Magazine's related article.

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 19 March 2015Professor David Gross speaks in strong support for the International Linear Collider, a "fantastic new accelerator". He says that for the exploation of the properties of the Higgs, the promise of new particles, forces and a new understanding the ILC is one of "the most exciting prospects." He says the he "applauds the Japanese government and Japanese colleagues for leading the effort to host the ILC in Japan, and I trust and hope that the international community will join this effort." David Gross was awarded the NobelPrize in Physics in 2004 along with Frank Wilczek and David Politzer. He is a theoretical physicist at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara.
