Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

International Linear Collider community meets at ECFA workshop LCWS16

| 23 June 2016 The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.

German particle physics community gives “strongest support” to ILC

| 26 May 2016 It may feel like only yesterday that the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics was adopted, but preparations for a new one, planned for 2018/19, are already underway. Germany has now published its first conclusions from a workshop on future electron-positron colliders that are very supportive of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Adapting to change

| 10 March 2016 The International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) is a biannual gathering of the heads of major particle physics labs and institutes from around the world for the purpose of sharing news, liaising, and working together to promote global collaboration in our field. The Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) has its mandate from ICFA, and the LC oversight Board (LCB) met in association with the recent ICFA meeting [see other article] to monitor progress on the three main LCC elements: the ILC, CLIC, and Detector & Physics groups.

Unplugged: new magnet concept could lower CLIC’s power bill

| 3 March 2016 Spirits lifted by a motivating talk by CERN's new Director-General, scientists attending the recent CLIC workshop say that there’s a lot that’s happening in the world of the Compact Linear Collider study. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

Here’s your physics case, once and for all

| 11 February 2016 Dear colleagues, this one is for you. All those paper writing thesis completing report submitting physicists out there: here comes a new central paper for your list of references and your reading list. It provides a comprehensive physics case for the e+e- linear collider and puts all the topics and ideas from theory, collider searches, astronomy in context to each other. It’s been published in the open-access peer-reviewed European Physical Journal C (EPJC). Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

CLIC experts meet at CERN

28 January 2016 Sometimes 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. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,

LHC Run-2 results to point the way

| 10 December 2015 Phil 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Collider facts

| 12 November 2015 In Whistler, British Columbia, some two hundred physicists gathered to the annual Linear Collider Workshop. As the last speaker of the meeting, I tried to summarise the status of various collider options currently under discussion. In particular, I tried to clarify their readiness and timelines.

LHC commissioning continues in spite of obstacles

| 14 May 2015 After almost two years of major work on the machine and its detectors, the Large Hadron Collider is in the middle of the so-called commissioning phase. During the roughly two months of commissioning, the operators check out every little system in the large complex that is the LHC. LCC Director and former LHC project leader Lyn Evans watches and learns from the sidelines. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,
