International Linear Collider community meets at ECFA workshop LCWS16

| 23 June 2016 The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.
