Towards the realization of the International Linear Collider, an update

| 31 May 2018 The 2018 Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW2018) is being held in Fukuoka, Japan from 28 May to 1 June. At the meeting a statement was unanimously endorsed stressing the scientific importance of the ILC and urging the Japanese government to declare interest in hosting the project. A decision is now urgent because the European Strategy Group, which supported European participation in the ILC in the last update in 2013, needs input by the end of 2018 if the Project is to be integrated into their report. The Fukuoka declaration follows. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Field trip to a model lab

| 28 May 2015 A delegation from Kesen-Numa City, from Japan, led by the Mayor Mr. Shigeru Sugawara, visited CERN and the area around it from 18 to 20 May. The group consisted of 16 representatives from the city's Council, the Commercial and Industry Association, the Board of Education, the Reconstruction and Policy Planning Division and many other official bodies. They visited CERN to gather information on how a working laboratory functions and what it needs. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Building trust and big machines

| 28 May 2015 The Japanese town Kesen-Numa has large expertise in the fishing and port industry, but they have never hosted a major international lab. A delegation recently visited CERN to learn how these labs work, what they need and what benefit they bring to their neighbours. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

Towards global political support

| 5 March 2015 Who are the counterparts to the Japanese Federation of Diet members in support of the ILC? What are the timescales for other future collider projects like FCC and the muon collider? LCC Deputy Director Hitoshi Murayama says the physics community should stay focused, consistent, and strategically uniform if it wants to convince decision makers to support the ILC.

Governor of Iwate prefecture visits CERN

| 13 November 2014 Takuya Tasso, Governor of Iwate Prefecture in Japan, visited CERN on 10 November. He wanted to see CERN's activities as a laboratory at the frontier of particle physics and its contribution to world-wide science and education, as well as learn about its social impact.

Voice your dream for the ILC!

| 30 October 2014 The ILC may be the first science project in the world that gets approval by video message. But only if there are enough of them, says LCC Director Lyn Evans. Everybody is invited to share his and her enthusiasm for the project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

ILC: What’s happening in Japan

| 18 September 2014 With a technical design well in place and R&D continuing on accelerator and detectors, the community is waiting for the next big milestone to occur towards the realisation of the ILC. Apart from crucial next results from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, all eyes are on the potential ILC host Japan. So what’s happening in Japan?

Setting the course for European particle physics

| 30 May 2013 On 30 May, at a special meeting hosted by the European Commission in Brussels, the CERN Council formally adopted the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. This strategy sets the course for the future of this research field in Europe, making recommendations for projects and research sectors to be pursued with priority, both the near-term and the long-term future.

Which way to the ILC, please?

18 October 2012 Drivers stuck in a traffic jam in Ichinoseki city are more likely to wonder about the mysteries of the Universe than about the latest Hollywood movie - at least if they take in the billboards at the side of the road. Japan's Iwate prefecture in the Tohoku region in the north of the country boasts a road sign underlining the region's interest in hosting the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,

Japanese interest in hosting the ILC

| 19 December 2011 On behalf of my colleagues worldwide who have been working so hard to develop a design for the International Linear Collider, we enthusiastically welcome the Japanese expression of interest in hosting the ILC. We report in today’s special issue of NewsLine on a special high-level meeting addressing this subject that was held in Japan last week. The Japanese are very strong partners in the technical effort to develop a design for the ILC through the Global Design Effort. The GDE represents a unique global process to develop and make technical decisions for the technical design of such a very large international project through a worldwide organisation developing the design and coordinating the R&D programmes. As we approach our goal of producing a detailed ILC technical design, it is particularly timely and encouraging for us to learn of the Japanese interest in hosting the facility and to follow the unfolding early status reports from the CERN LHC on the Higgs searches.
