Andy White and Marcel Stanitzki new SiD spokesmen

| 21 February 2013 There is a change at the helm of SiD, one of the two detector concepts for the ILC. After John Jaros and Harry Weerts have pushed SiD the LOI, the validation of SiD as one of two ILC detector concepts and collaboration in the CLIC CDR, the time is right for two new spokesmen to take over. These are Andy White and Marcel Stanitzki, whose role now is to strengthen the SiD detector concept and attract new collaborators from all the regions and and continue to develop and improve the SiD concept.

Encouraging news from CERN

| 5 July 2012 We in the ILC Research Directorate are thrilled with the announcement from CERN this week that a Higgs-like particle has been discovered. The Higgs particle has been a target of our experiments for over decades, and the affirming news from LHC finally means a great step forward. I wish to congratulate CERN and all physicists who contributed to this success. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Organising the post-2012 era

| 28 June 2012 The new Linear Collider Organisation is being planned with a united ILC and CLIC physics and detector effort. This is a natural step, but the devil is in the details. While there has been a lot of fruitful collaboration in the past, there also remain differences that must be considered. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , , ,

The impact of ILC detector R&D

| 18 August 2011 Although the actual construction date of the ILC accelerator and its detectors is very uncertain, the impact of the R&D for ILC detectors is very real. Sometimes we tend to overlook the deep impact the work initiated by and carried out within the ILC detector community has already had on the whole particle physics community and beyond.

Planning the Detailed Baseline Design Report

| 24 March 2011 The scientists that make up the physics and detector side of the ILC community come together to create the Detailed Baseline Detector Report, a document that reflects the newest developments and requirements in detector R&D. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

Preparing future detector R&D at testbeams

| 19 November 2009 Testbeams are the first occasion for detector concepts to face the truth about their design, and an optimal opportunity to train young physicist on real data. Recently, 40 experts met at Orsay to review the needs for testbeams for the R&D on detectors in the future. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,
