Barbara Warmbein | 11 February 2016Remember the ingenious civil engineering tool that British consultancy ARUP has developed for CERN's FCC and that is also being used for site-specific planning of the ILC? That thing where you can play around with shafts, tunnels and rock formations without leaving your desk? It's been shortlisted for a prestigious award, so keep your fingers crossed.

28 January 2016Sometimes even linear-collider experts make semi circles, especially when you have to squeeze more than 200 participants into one picture (and it's raining). The CLIC workshop was held at CERN from 18 to 22 January. Get the latest on the Compact Linear Collider Study in a future issue of LC NewsLine.

Philip Burrows | 10 December 2015Phil Burrows, acting Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration, says the linear collider community should be prepared for new results from the LHC over the course of the coming years, with the first to be announced next week. They will help us decide which future path we should take.

Barbara Warmbein | 6 August 2015Summer breaks don't exist for detector prototypes. For almost three weeks in July – around the time that a new temperature record of 39.7 degrees was measured in Geneva – the team working on the technological prototype of a potential hadronic calorimeter for the ILD detector at the ILC took data at the Super Proton Synchrotron test beam at CERN.

11 June 2015On 3 June, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN started delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months at the record energy of 13 TeV. This marks the start of season 2 at the LHC, opening the way to new discoveries. The LHC will now run round the clock for the next three years."Run 2 of the LHC can well decide the future of the field. I’m super excited!" said LCC deputy director and theorist Hitoshi Murayama on the day.
