Lyn Evans | 18 September 2014With a technical design well in place and R&D continuing on accelerator and detectors, the community is waiting for the next big milestone to occur towards the realisation of the ILC. Apart from crucial next results from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, all eyes are on the potential ILC host Japan. So what’s happening in Japan? Linear Collider Collaboration Director Lyn Evans takes stock

Qian Pan | 7 June 2012Last week, China’s second Linear Collider Workshop was held in Beijing to discuss how China can join in the pre-research and future construction of ILC project more constructively. A unanimous consensus was reached that China should play an active role in ILC international cooperation and key-technology R&D on accelerator and detectors should be further pushed ahead.
