ECFA Linear Collider Workshop: registration is open
The next ECFA Linear Collider Workshop which will be held in Santander (Spain) from 30 May to 5 June 2016. It continues the international workshops devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high-energy electron-positron linear colliders (ILC, CLIC). The workshop is co-hosted by ECFA and LCC and will consist of accelerator sessions, several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups as well as physics and plenary sessions. Find out more about the meeting and the programme or register here.
Barbara Warmbein | 28 May 2015Accelerator 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.

24 July 2014A 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.

Steinar Stapnes | 22 August 2013It has been another summer with discussions about future strategies for international particle physics. After work on the European Strategy last summer, the US strategy is on the table this summer. For the linear collider work the strategy processes have been positive, reports Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for CLIC in the Linear Collider Collaboration. Researchers are closely following decisions being made in Japan.
