Frascati Meeting Concludes with BCD Recommendations and New GDE Structure

| 15 December 2005 Some of the major recommendations discussed at Frascati include the energy upgrade, number of tunnels, curvature of the tunnel and the number of interaction regions. Kaoru Yokoya, a member of the GDE Executive Committee, outlined the recommendations made in the BCD. "The BCD concluded that a 500 GeV tunnel would be built because of its lower first stage cost.", he said. As the current recommendation stands, a 20 km tunnel would be built during the first stage of the project. An upgrade would occur in between the first and second stage of the project, bringing the machine up to an energy of 1 TeV and increasing the length of the tunnel to approximately 40 km.

Progress with the BCD

| 17 November 2005 Today I am going to give an update on our progress towards the Baseline Configuration Document, BCD. The major goal of the GDE this calendar year is to produce a baseline configuration for the ILC and to document it by the end of 2005. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
