Ten Years and Counting…

| 20 August 2015 As is appropriate for an anniversary issue, this week's Director's Corner is authored by Barry Barish, who led the project from its conception in 2005 through major milestones up to the publication of the Technical Design report in 2013 and the formation of the Linear Collider Collaboration. He looks back at past achievements and advises the linear community to remain very, very patient. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Japanese diet members go to Washington

| 11 June 2015 Japanese and US officials as well as representatives from the physics community met in Washington, D.C. to discuss how Japan and the US can work together toward the realisation of the ILC. Americas Regional Director Harry Weerts reports. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Discussions at the political level over the ILC in US and Europe

| 11 June 2015 Right after the Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW) 2015 and ILC Tokyo Event, another big milestone for the ILC happened in the United States. From 26 to 30 April, three members of the Diet and members of Japan’s Federation of Diet Members for Promotion of the ILC, Takeo Kawamura, Ryu Shionoya and Shun-ichi Suzuki visited Washington D.C., to meet with their American counterparts to discuss the ILC.

From Fermilab Today: Anna Grassellino receives $2.5 million DOE award for research on SRF cavities

5 June 2014 Thanks to science, we get more for less. We get more features on a newer car model, more data and information stored on a computer, and all for the same or lowered cost. That same principle applies to accelerator R&D, where improving the performance and lowering the cost can help open doors to new ideas. The Department of Energy recently named Fermilab physicist and 2013 Peoples Fellow Anna Grassellino as a recipient of the prestigious Early Career Research Award for her work to develop particle accelerator cavities that have improved performance and are less expensive to operate.

The roadmap for high-energy physics in the US from P5

and | 22 May 2014 After the release of the European Strategy for Particle Physics last year, the strategy process in the US is also being finalised. The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) was put together and charged by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) to create a “10 year strategic plan in context of a 20 year global vision” for the US programme. The complete committee report was presented to HEPAP today and discussions about its content are ongoing. The P5 roadmap outlines a broad particle physics programme for the US, including strong endorsements for the ILC in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

From symmetry: Proposed plan for the future of US particle physics

22 May 2014 The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel’s report, released today, recommends a strategic path forward for US particle physics, reports Kathryn Jepsen in symmetry magazine. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

US and Japan discuss cooperation in advanced science and technology

2 May 2013 It's suit and tie time when high-level US and Japanese science planners meet. At the US-Japan Advanced Science and Technology Symposium, held on 30 April in Washington DC, leaders from government, academia and industry met to discuss US-Japan cooperation in science and technology, using the ILC as an example. Learn more in the next issue of LC NewsLine. On the left is a Daniel B. Poneman, Deputy Secretary of Energy, and on the right Takeo Kawamura, Member of the Lower House and Chair of the Federation of Diet members in support of the ILC.

A potential US site for the ILC

| 20 September 2012 There are no official proposals for where the ILC could be located. Rather, our approach has been to develop an ILC design compatible with three “sample” sites that have different characteristics. In this process, we have by no means ruled out the possibility of housing the ILC in a shallow site, even though all three of our sample sites are deep underground. A new shallow site possibility has recently been suggested in Hanford, Washington in the US. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

HEPAP: advising DOE on the particle physics programme

| 12 April 2012 HEPAP is the official advisory body to DOE for high-energy physics. At their recent meeting from 12 to 13 March, they dealt with US high-energy physics budgets, including future year projections, and how to reconcile them with the US high-energy physics programme. In the process, they covered a wide variety of topics ranging from the future of the US accelerator R&D programme to next-generation dark matter searches. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

GDE Executive Committee visits Washington DC

| 1 March 2012 During a face-to-face working meeting of the Global Design Effort Executive Committee, held in Washington DC last month, invited guests discussed with us how science is supported in the US system, including new project approval, the yearly budget process and the formulation of science policy.
