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.

US Department of Energy ILC R&D funding request for fiscal year 2011

| 11 February 2010 [...] I am pleased to announce that the DOE is continuing to support this revised programme and that a $35-million ILC R&D budget has been included in the President's US budget request announced last week. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Science in the Obama era

| 19 March 2009 We will restore science to its rightful place, said President Barack Obama in his inauguration address. That statement has raised the hopes of the scientific community, and actions that have followed have further encouraged us to believe that we are entering a new era in the US that will have increased priority for the support of science. (...) It is worthwhile anticipating how all the changes will impact US science, high-energy physics, in particular, and finally on our efforts towards the ILC.

It is that time of the year again

| 25 September 2008 Given the arcane nature of the US budgetary system, I will describe this process, since the resources available to us, or the lack thereof, serve to drive the scope of the US ILC R&D effort. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

US Budget: Reviving the ILC R&D programme

| 7 February 2008 President Bush released his budget request for the US fiscal year 2009 (FY09) earlier this week. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Omnibus is ominous

| 20 December 2007 Our plan this week was to make this issue of ILC NewsLine a thematic one, highlighting progress on Superconducting Radiofrequency R&D, the central technology for the International Linear Collider. It would have made a very nice final edition for this calendar year, but unfortunately new events that imperil the future course of the ILC must be addressed instead.
