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.

Discussing the future – SLAC ICFA Seminar

| 4 December 2008 Visionary thinkers converged at SLAC for an ICFA Seminar (International Committee for Future Accelerators) on possible future projects for particle physics during the last week in October. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

From SLAC Today: ICFA Sharpens Focus on the Energy Frontier

6 November 2008 "Particle physics is at a crossroads," said Chairperson Albrecht Wagner of the International Committee for Future Accelerators, in the opening moments of the ninth ICFA Seminar last Tuesday in Kavli Auditorium. "The Standard Model stands triumphant," Wagner said, "yet incomplete." Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

ICFA Statement on Funding for the Linear Collider

| 6 March 2008 What do you do when you are director of a lab and chairman of a large international committee and have been invited to different events on different continents on the same day, assuming you don't have clones? You try to attend both -- at least virtually. Albrecht Wagner, DG of DESY in Hamburg and chair of the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA), gave an ICFA talk at the opening plenary of this week's TILC08 meeting that he had recorded earlier.

Funding Agencies for the Linear Collider

| 10 November 2005 All of us recognize that the ILC will be too expensive to be undertaken by one country or even probably, by one region. For that reason, ground-breaking steps have been taken to internationalize the effort from the very beginning. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
