Sakue Yamada | 19 May 2011Costing the two ILC detectors more precisely is one of the important activities for the ongoing ILC detector design work, and balancing detector cost and performance depends on the strategy of the detector groups. To learn whether there are differences among them, the groups undertake detailed coordination of their costing methodologies.

Barbara Warmbein | 17 September 2009ILD and SiD, two of the three detector concepts that submitted Letters of Intent, have been recommended for validation to Research Director Sakue Yamada by the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG), chaired by Michel Davier. At their recent meeting in Hamburg, the ILC's Steering Committee endorsed the IDAG recommendations. This means that the R&D collaborations working on detector technologies and prototypes for the two ILC detector concepts ILD, the International Large Detector concept, and SiD, the Silicon Detector Design Study, will continue under full steam in their work towards the best design for detectors to understand collisions at the future ILC. The third detector concept that submitted an LOI, called '4th', was not validated. However, IDAG recommended that R&D on dual readout calorimetry done for 4th in a collaboration of many institutes should be supported in view of its potential for higher energy colliders.

Sakue Yamada | 17 September 2009(...) The conclusion is that the International Large Detector concept (ILD) and the Silicon Detector Design Study concept (SiD) are recommended for validation as complementary detectors to go on with detailed design and that the dual-readout calorimeter technology is encouraged to be further developed. -- By Sakue Yamada
