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 !

Barbara Warmbein | 31 July 2008In their meeting a couple of days ago at DESY, ECFA, the European Committee for Future Accelerators, got a complete update on all present and future particle physics activities in Europe. They also discussed the ILC and its potential: “We think it is important to remember that particle physics in Europe is more than the LHC,” says the current ECFA chair Karlheinz Meier from Heidelberg university in Germany. “The community has to plan now, gather facts and lay foundations for future projects, and the ILC is a very good example for this.”

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 10 July 2008The future Director-General of CERN Rolf Heuer, currently Research Director at DESY, presented his personal vision of the future of particle physics in Europe at the ILC-ECFA meeting in Warsaw, Poland. Heuer emphasised the exciting times the community is now entering with the LHC start-up. The exploration of our mysterious "Dark Universe" is the main motivation for present and future astronomy and particle physics projects, and with the LHC and its highest collision energy ever, we are on the verge to explore it. After reviewing many possible scenarios and options for the after-LHC phase, Heuer said he hoped that particle physics research will continue with the same momentum for future projects, in particular for a future e+-e- collider. He hopes that the community will make use of these exciting times to establish a sustainable and global partnership between the labs, "of which CERN could be the catalyst."

Sakue Yamada | 15 May 2008During the ECFA workshop for the International Linear Collider in Warsaw from 9 to 12 June, the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG) will meet for the first time. The three concept groups of the ILC detector which expressed their interest to prepare letters of intent (LOI) will meet IDAG.

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 1 December 2005On 14-17 November, the European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) sponsored an ILC workshop in Vienna, Austria. François Richard, chairman of the "Organizing Committee ECFA Study of Physics and Detectors for a Linear Collider" and GDE member, explained the purposes of these workshops.
