Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

Mike Harrison | 17 April 2014Having just returned from a three-day meeting of civil engineers, accelerator designers, integration experts and linear collider management at the University of Tokyo, Mike Harrison, ILC Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration, reports on the progress. It turned out that even if the ILC is built in stages, which is a popular model with many, all the major civil engineering facilities would have to be completed in phase one of the project.

Rika Takahashi | 8 July 2010On 1-2 June, the review on the design study of the ILC conventional facility in mountain regions was held at KEK, Japan, and the final review report was submitted last week by the review panel lead by Vic Kuchler of Fermilab to Seiya Yamaguchi, head of KEK's Linear Collider Office and to Marc Ross, project manager of the Global Design Effort (GDE) in charge of the conventional facility study (GDE/CFS).

Barbara Warmbein | 12 February 2009The small town of Schenefeld just outside Hamburg in northern Germany isn't exactly known for its sights or its tourism. Many Schenefeld citizens, however, have recently become tourists in their own neighbourhood: ever since the construction works for the European XFEL started on 8 January, the building site sees a steady flow of visitors stopping by on or from their way to the shops, checking on progress, curious about their new neighbour. While the whole ILC project can learn a lot from this curiosity (namely establishing good contact with neighbours when construction for the collider starts), one specific group is digging deeper: the 'conventional facilities and siting (CF&S)' team is establishing close contacts to experts working on the European XFEL to learn from them and to help when possible.
