ECFA Linear Collider Workshop: registration is open
The next ECFA Linear Collider Workshop which will be held in Santander (Spain) from 30 May to 5 June 2016. It continues the international workshops devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high-energy electron-positron linear colliders (ILC, CLIC). The workshop is co-hosted by ECFA and LCC and will consist of accelerator sessions, several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups as well as physics and plenary sessions.

Elizabeth Clements | 5 July 2007When the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) group at KEK decided to upgrade their beam position monitor system in 2005, Marc Ross had a solution. Based at SLAC at the time, he was a longtime collaborator with KEK and familiar with the instrumentation systems used throughout Fermilab’s accelerator complex. In 2006, Ross became the head of Fermilab’s Technical Division and could see how to continue his initiated beam position monitor upgrade efforts at the ATF damping ring. Called Echotek boards, these digital signal processing based systems offer a higher resolution potential – a characteristic that allows physicists to see more details about the beam. As it turned out, Fermilab was willing to make several Echotek boards available for testing the ATF system. Hence a new collaboration was born.
