Announcement: TILC09 will be held in Tsukuba next April

April is the best time to visit Japan – nice and warm weather, cherry blossoms and lively atmosphere of starting a new fiscal year – and of course, TILC09! A worldwide meeting of physicists on the ILC accelerator, experiments and theory to further the ILC's Technical Design Phase.

Epochal Tsukuba: the conference venue for TILC09

The Asian Committee for Future Accelerators (ACFA) joint Linear Collider Physics and Detector Working Group and the International Linear Collider (ILC) Global design effort (GDE) are inviting you to the joint ACFA physics and detector workshop and the GDE meeting on the International Linear Collider (TILC09 for short) to be held in downtown Tsukuba, Japan, from Friday 17 to 21 April next year at EPOCHAL Tsukuba, the international conference centre.

This meeting will be the eleventh in the series of meetings on the physics and detector of the ILC organised by the ACFA joint Linear Collider Physics and Detector Working Group. It also represents the eleventh of the major meetings to for the GDE, pursuing the development of the design and project planning for the ILC accelerator systems. The two meetings will share the opening plenary and closing plenary sessions on the first day and the last day. Important agenda items of the meetings include Accelerator Advisory Panel reviews for the GDE and the initiation of the IDAG review process of the Letters of Intent for detector systems, besides the parallel sessions on the middle three days.

For the details of the meetings, please visit the TILC09 website. Early registration is being accepted as of Dec. 18, 2008. More information will be posted subsequently. Since there are a limited number of rooms at the conference hotels, we recommend making your hotel reservation as soon as possible. Inquires on logistic aspects of these meetings, please contact the TILC09 local organising committee.

You may miss the cherry in full bloom, but don't miss the blooming stage of the ILC.
