LCWS13 – a timely linear collider workshop

| 24 October 2013 LCWS13 is the first International Linear Collider workshop after the completion of the ILC Technical Design Report, the European Strategy for particle physics, the ILC site evaluation committee of Japan announcement and the Science Council of Japan report. All converges to make it a very promising linear collider meeting, Hitoshi Yamamoto explains. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Stairway study

| 10 October 2013 After publishing the physics and detector chapters for the CLIC Conceptual Design Report organised only through working groups on various different study topics and detector R&D projects, the CLIC physics and detector community has spent the last months putting a new organisation in place: the CLIC detector and physics study. So far, 19 institutes have joined the study that is hosted at CERN. Frank Simon, MPI Munich, was elected as the chair of the Institute Board and Lucie Linssen as the first spokesperson. At their meeting at CERN last week, some 50 representatives from the various institutes met at CERN to discuss progress on physics simulations and detector development.

Common ground in ILC and CLIC detector concepts

| 22 August 2013 The Compact Linear Collider and International Linear Collider will accelerate particles and create collisions in different ways. Nonetheless, the detector concepts under development share many commonalities. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

Strategy for linear colliders

| 22 August 2013 It has been another summer with discussions about future strategies for international particle physics. After work on the European Strategy last summer, the US strategy is on the table this summer. For the linear collider work the strategy processes have been positive, reports Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for CLIC in the Linear Collider Collaboration. Researchers are closely following decisions being made in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Setting the course for European particle physics

| 30 May 2013 On 30 May, at a special meeting hosted by the European Commission in Brussels, the CERN Council formally adopted the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. This strategy sets the course for the future of this research field in Europe, making recommendations for projects and research sectors to be pursued with priority, both the near-term and the long-term future.

The ECFA LC2013 workshop

| 30 May 2013 The European Linear Collider workshop, taking place in Hamburg from 27 to 31 May, coincides with very many important strategic processes at Japan, Europe and US, all of them nourished by the optimistic results from the LHC. Juan Fuster, chair of the workshop programme committee, explains the scientific and political context of the meeting. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Strategies and realities

| 16 May 2013 The European Strategy for Particle Physics is expected to be adopted by the CERN Council end May. The physics potential of future linear colliders is well recognised in the Strategy statements. As global projects have cross-regional consequences, this strategy could have a wide impact in and beyond Europe. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Le roi est mort, vive le roi ! (*)

| 4 April 2013 The problems of succession to the throne have bedeviled society throughout the ages. For centuries the European approach seemed to involve bloodshed ranging from the personal to the national level. The recent transfer of power in the linear collider world might not have been violent, but it still faces the eternal question of “OK, so where do we go from here?” Here are some thoughts on the ILC programme.
