Positron polarisation workshop: POSIPOL 2014, 27 – 29 August
POSIPOL 2014 will be held at the new library of Ichinoseki-city, Iwate. As the ninth of POSIPOL workshop series, POSIPOL 2014 will discuss issues of polarised positron sources, high intensity positron sources, X-ray/Gamma-ray sources, and their applications. The positron sources for the linear colliders, ILC and CLIC, will be main subjects, but positron sources for other colliders such as B-factories will also be discussed.

Barry Barish | 17 November 2011The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders (FALC), an informal group of agency representatives met at CERN on 6 October. FALC is constituted to improve the possibilities for international cooperation in high-energy physics by understanding the planning processes in the funding agencies, exchanging information on plans and statuses of projects in different countries or regions and preparing for cooperation on future particle physics facilities. Highlights of this FALC meeting included discussion of plans for the ILC and more generally for lepton colliders following completion of the ILC Technical Design Report, as well as discussions of plans for the European Strategy Update just getting underway.
