Barry Barish | 5 April 2012The joint ACFA Physics/Detector Workshop and Global Design Effort meeting on linear colliders (KILC12) will be held in Daegu, Korea from 23 to 27 April 2012. This meeting comes at the crucial time when we are making the transition from determining the technical details for the Technical Design Report to actually writing the report. At Daegu, the GDE will not only present a set of progress reports on ILC R&D but will also schedule special working meetings on costing and first draft sections of the TDR.
