From ICFA : Lyn Evans appointed as Linear Collider Director

21 June 2012 The international effort to design the world’s next major particle collider has a new leader. On 20 May 2012, the International Committee for Future Accelerators announced the appointment of CERN's Lyn Evans as the new Linear Collider Director. Evans is the first to hold the new position, which will lead the Linear Collider organisation created to bring two existing large-scale linear collider programmes under one governance. He will be based at CERN. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

FALC meets in Japan

| 24 May 2012 The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders met in the Shonan Village Center in Kanagawa, Japan on 17 April. FALC is an informal group of agency representatives who discuss large international projects in particle physics, both projects that are under way and those in the planning stages. FALC has given special attention to the ILC since it is a totally global initiative and has no home laboratory to oversee its development. The meeting in Japan discussed the future of ILC R&D beyond the Global Design Effort mandate to produce a Technical Design Report next year. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

The International Linear Collider Steering Committee plans for the future

| 8 March 2012 The International Linear Collider Steering Committee, chaired by Jon Bagger, met at Oxford University on 2 February. The main order of business was to plan the future of the ILC effort, following completion of the Technical Design Report. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

From Fermilab Today: ILCSC and ICFA meetings

23 February 2012 Meetings for the International Linear Collider Steering Committee and the International Committee for Future Accelerators recently took place in Oxford, England. One of the principal issues discussed at both meetings was a new organisation for the worldwide linear collider effort. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Pondering the future of particle physics

| 8 December 2011 The International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) sponsors a meeting every three years on “Future Perspectives in High Energy Physics.” This year the ICFA seminar was held at CERN and it broadly covered plans and ideas for future facilities for our field. This meeting was particularly timely, as it coincided both with the completion of the impressive first year of running of the LHC and with the kickoff of the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics to be completed in 2013.

ICFA leaders discuss the ILC

13 October 2011 CERN Director General Rolf Heuer, Fermilab Director Pier Oddone and KEK Director General Atsuto Suzuki discuss the state of high-energy physics at the Geneva Press Club's press conference of the International Committee on Future Accelerators. The lab directors begin directly addressing the press at 6'44. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Congratulations to Shin-ichi Kurokawa

| 30 June 2011 Shin-ichi Kurokawa, who has been so instrumental in developing the Asian collaboration for the Global Design Effort, was awarded the Rolf Widerøe Prize for outstanding work in the accelerator field by the European Physical Society Accelerator Group Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Interim report on the ILC R&D programme

| 16 June 2011 We have reached the midpoint in the ILC R&D efforts towards the Technical Design Report. In recognition of that milestone, we release today a new report entitled International Linear Collider: A Technical Progress Report. This report gives a comprehensive summary of the major accomplishments to date of the ILC R&D programmes. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

International Linear Collider Steering Committee confronts ILC R&D support issues

| 20 May 2010 The most recent meeting of the ILCSC, chaired by Jon Bagger, was held on 25 February 2010 at Brookhaven National Laboratory, a day before the meeting of ICFA. This meant that many of the major laboratory directors could take part in the ILCSC meeting, and since much of the ILC R&D programme is carried out through these laboratories, this meeting presented the opportunity to have meaningful and frank discussions of the support and resources needed to achieve the high-priority ILC R&D goals, both for the ILC accelerator and detector efforts.
