Towards the realization of the International Linear Collider, an update

| 31 May 2018 The 2018 Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW2018) is being held in Fukuoka, Japan from 28 May to 1 June. At the meeting a statement was unanimously endorsed stressing the scientific importance of the ILC and urging the Japanese government to declare interest in hosting the project. A decision is now urgent because the European Strategy Group, which supported European participation in the ILC in the last update in 2013, needs input by the end of 2018 if the Project is to be integrated into their report. The Fukuoka declaration follows. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Successful visit to Europe: one big step for ILC realisation

| 1 February 2018 A Japanese delegation of 18 persons – Diet members, government officials, industry leaders, and scientists – toured France and Germany in a four-day visit seeking to strengthen relationships towards ILC realisation. Essential view points from the two countries on investment and timescale were clarified and confirmed with the delegation. The importance to include the ILC into the next European strategy for particle physics was also reaffirmed. Category: Feature, Uncategorized | Tagged: , , , ,

Preparing for the update

| 1 February 2018 With input to the update of the European Strategy for Particle Phyics due by the end of the year, the linear collider community has its goals clearly defined: progress on the political level and on technology. Steinar Stapnes gives an overview. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

German particle physics community gives “strongest support” to ILC

| 26 May 2016 It may feel like only yesterday that the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics was adopted, but preparations for a new one, planned for 2018/19, are already underway. Germany has now published its first conclusions from a workshop on future electron-positron colliders that are very supportive of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Adapting to change

| 10 March 2016 The International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) is a biannual gathering of the heads of major particle physics labs and institutes from around the world for the purpose of sharing news, liaising, and working together to promote global collaboration in our field. The Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) has its mandate from ICFA, and the LC oversight Board (LCB) met in association with the recent ICFA meeting [see other article] to monitor progress on the three main LCC elements: the ILC, CLIC, and Detector & Physics groups.

Towards an Asian Strategy for Particle Physics?

| 11 February 2016 Akira Yamamoto, Regional Director for Asia in the Linear Collider Collaboration, had to learn this week that ACFA isn’t what he thought it is. ACFA stands for Asian Committee for Future Accelerators, and contrary to what its name suggests it is an independent body, not a subgroup of the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA. He reports from their recent meeting in Kyoto, Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Future colliders

| 29 October 2015 Frank words from the Americas Regional Director Harry Weerts: decisions about global science projects aren’t taken by scientists. They are taken by politicians. The world’s roadmaps for the future of particle physics may recommend a linear collider in Japan, but it also needs to find its way into the world’s science budgets in order to proceed.

Crossing technical and cultural borders

| 28 May 2015 Accelerator experts from Europe and Japan have a long history of cooperation for projects such as ATF at the Japanese lab KEK, and of course the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. A new EU-funded project makes sure that cooperation continues with future projects like the high-luminosity LHC, the Future Circular Collider FCC, CLIC, the ILC and many more. The first researcher (from the German lab DESY) has already spent nine weeks in Japan to improve simulations for site-specific machine-detector-interface questions for the ILC.

Future large colliders in Asia – a personal perspective

| 28 May 2015 With the discovery of the Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in July 2012, after more than 50 years of searching, particle physics has finally entered the era of the Higgs, and the door for human beings to understand the unknown part of the Universe is wide open, says Jie Gao from IHEP in Beijing, China.

From ICFA: International committee looks toward a global future of particle physics discoveries

24 July 2014 A global strategy for particle physics is taking shape, one world region at a time. Featuring colliders that smash particles at higher energies than ever before, and gigantic experiments to study the smallest components of matter, this future will lead to breakthrough discoveries at facilities around the globe.
