Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

YiLin Liu | 19 June 2014During a recent visit to IHEP in China, an LCC delegation discussed China’s role in the ILC project, including how China is going to participate, what China is going to contribute and who is going to join the project, with scientists from IHEP and Chinese universities. They also visited IHEP's ILC 1.3 GHz superconducting accelerator module.

YiLin Liu | 27 June 2013From 12 to 14 June, the 464th Fragrant Hill Science Conference on “The Next-generation High Energy Electron Positron Collider - Current Situation and Future Strategy” was held in the Beijing Fragrant Hill Hotel. Thirty-five front-line scientists from theoretical physics, experimental physics, detectors and accelerators from eleven institutes in China joined the conference. Scientists reviewed the achievements of high-energy-frontier experiments and current research programmes on particle physics both at home and abroad. They also discussed China's strategy for the next-generation high-energy electron-positron colliders.

Min Zhang and Qian Pan | 23 February 2012Jialin Xie, a 92-year-old specialist in particle accelerators, was awarded the State Top Scientific and Technological Award by President Jintao Hu at a ceremony held in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 14 February. Xie is best known for helping China build its first high-energy electron linear accelerator in 1964 and for contributing to the research and design of the Beijing Electron Positron Collider in the 1980s.

Rika Takahashi | 2 February 2012Shin-ichi Kurokawa, professor emeritus of KEK, has been awarded the 2011 award for International Scientific Cooperation by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since the eighties, Kurokawa has been actively promoting academic cooperation and exchanges in science and technology between Japan and China, and later expanded it to Asian-wide collaborative research. He also served as chair of the Asian Committee for Future Accelerators and of the ILC Steering Committee.

Min Zhang | 2 September 2010The European X-ray Free Electron Laser (European XFEL) and the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) are two important international cooperative science facilities mainly led by Germany. China has participated in the R&D of some detectors, low-temperature systems, high-performance undulators, superconducting material and special material for these projects. On 29 August 2008, the project "Basic Research on the FEL and FAIR" supported by China's national programme for key basic research and development (officially called 973 programme) started. The project is coordinated by the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Science (IHEP), and about ten different research institutes, universities and corporations in China participate in this project, including the Institute of Modern Physics, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Orient Tantalum Industry Corp. (OTIC), etc.

Min Zhang | 22 July 2010A 1.3-Gigahertz low-loss type large-grain nine-cell superconducting cavity called IHEP-01 produced at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, China, achieved an accelerating gradient of 20 Megavolts per metre in its first vertical test at KEK on 1 July. This may not be the design gradient yet, but it marks an important progress on the research and development of superconducting radio frequency (SRF) technology in China.

Min Zhang | 3 June 2010In June, a lot of Chinese students graduate from different schools. Sha Bai, a PhD student from the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), is one of them. “I enjoy my research work very much. I like ATF2, ILC and CLIC a lot,” said Bai, who just received her doctoral degree in June 2010 working on ATF2 (Accelerator Test Facility 2) at KEK in Japan, with the goal to reach 37-nanometre vertical beam size at the interaction point, both in beam optics and experimental work.
